We went there tonight because of all the glowing reviews of this place. To be honest, we had excellent food. But the whole time we were there the service was terrible and we were treated like an afterthought. There were several dozen teenagers in the restaurant at the same time we were, and they were loud and rude the whole... More

We went to Restaurante de Lucia during our visit in Monteverde. The restaurant was close to closing but they stayed open for all of us to have a drink and never rushed us out. Very kind owners and show true Costa Rican hospitality. I would recommend visiting this restaurant if you are looking for a good experience.

If you are in Monteverde you definitely have to taste the chicken lasagna from this place, It's the best! They also have a nice variety of wines if you are looking for a chill place in the mountain to have a glass. 110% recommended

I am a Monteverde resident and Restaurante De Lucia is my favorite by far. So many special moments I have shared with friends and family at this place that feels so cozy and welcoming.

We ate here because it was across the road from our hotel and looked inviting. We were not disappointed. The inside has a warm and friendly feel due to extensive wood. The food was high quality, fresh and perfectly prepared. We had been in Costa Rica for about a week and were looking for something different than the comida typica.... More

We have not tried their claim to the "best hamburgers in town" but we did come back a time or two for others dishes which always delighted us with being more generous and tasty than we would expect from what appears to be an ordinary small family restaurant. The setting is a bit dark and hidden a couple blocks of... More
