We were the only guests at 7 in the evening and decided to suit outside to enjoy atmosphere and fresh air. Being vegetarian, I really enjoyed a nice change of potato curry wrap and lovely salad without been drenched in salad dressing. The city was delicately spiced and delicious red wine excellent. We all enjoyed desserts of chocolates, biscotti and... More

The food here is fantastic. An Argentinian cafe with a wide selection of wraps, salads , meat/fish and a dessert menu to die for.

My family of 5 ate a delicious lunch here. We enjoyed the chicken wraps, lasagna, lattes and limonada all were wonderful. The services was attentive. If this place wasnt so far from our hotel, we would have eagerly gone back for another meal.

The food was ok, When we went we were the only people in the place so the atmosphere was lacking. It would probably be a good place for lunch. Unfortunatly we spent $20... More

This was the best meal we had during a week long trip to Costa Rica, most of it spent in Monteverde. The food was delicious and just right for a lovely lunch. The and chocolates were the perfect ending.

My wife liked this place a lot more than I did, so averaging out the reviews. The setting and service were great, but my food was only slightly above average.

We went here for dinner based on recommendation of our guide book. We were not disappointed. Food with Argentinean flare was delicately prepared. Service was on par, especially with owner lady Suzanne providing a personal touch. It is located in the same complex at the Bat Jungle, so a bit of distance from the main town of Santa Elena. We...
