Very good selection of meat at this establishment with steak cooked with a Chilean/Argentinian flare. Place to go when thinking of red meat in Monteverde.

I had the steak and my mouth waters thinking back on it. The restaurant was very quiet when we arrived for an early supper. The restaurant is very clean and classy and the prices were very reasonable! Highly recommend! Great place for a group or date!

We arrived at this restaurant after our night hike just before they were closing and they didn't hesitate to let us in! It was super close to our hotel- cala lodge- and they are both owned by family members. I absolutely loved the tortilla appetizer - which was served with 4 dishes of beans, guacamole, pickled jalapeño veggies and a... More

After a quick dip in our hotel's (Monteverde Lodge) very large hot tub, we took a peaceful hike on the lodge grounds and into the adjoining private nature preserve. We stopped for dinner at Restaurante De Lucia-- one of the best meals of our 8 day trip. It was warm, welcoming and reasonably priced ($60/4 people with drinks and dessert).... More

The exterior sign boasts that they have the best burger in town My husband had to try it out and was very pleased! I had to have a traditional meal and... More

Went for dinner a couple of times. Nice, warm, relaxed ambience; attentive, friendly, professional service. Great appetizer that comes with all meals—fresh made tortilla chips with guacamole, bean dip and a mild salsa. The sea bass ceviche was very good and came with a fresh green salad and avocados. Wine by the glass. Limited, mostly Italian menu though there should... More

We stayed at the Monteverde Country Lodge which is a very short walk across the road. Although very quiet when we were there in November we enjoyed the meals on both occasions that we eat there. I had steak on both occasions (it was very nice!!). The value for money was excellent and I would recommend this restaurant to you.

Our guide Koki recommended this place to us, and we were intrigued by the appetizers of corn tortillas with three dipping sauces. These were delicious! For dinner, there were many selections, but mostly of the Italian variety. It was good, as were our drinks. We have to thank them immensely for keeping the restaurant open for us after our night...

Actually this place is just across the street and was open until 9:00, perfect timing Fromm return from a night walk. The restaurant is run by a husband and wife team with a very unassuming, calm atmosphere. The restaurant call itself Italian but the is way more options besides pasta. I had the sea bass and their combinations of food... More
