This quaint little gem was a wonderful find. It's off the beaten path but isn't most things in this area. It's well worth the trip. I loved the Chicken Lasagna and my wife enjoyed the eggplant parmigiana. It was quiet, relaxed and the server was very good.

Great portion, excellent food, great natural juices. Veg Lasagna was the best I have ever had and I have been to plenty of good Italian restaurants in New York. Loved it.

We happen to strike up a conversation with a local at the supermarket. When I asked him where was a good restaurant, he replyed "Well, my restaurant!". He gave us directions and was waiting for us when we arrived. Jose' treated us like his best patrons. I had the Filete Pescado Vasca, it was fantastic. If you are ever in... More

If you dare to order a hamburger, remove all toppings and take a bite of the thin perfectly round pre-prepared meat. You been warned. it truly is not nearly close to even being called a hamburger let alone "the best",--according to exterior sign. I told them how bad the non fresh burger tasted but they had nothing to say. one... More

Both my husband and I LOVED our dinners. The meal started with tortillas and 4 condiments including guacamole, black beans, and salsa. I had the filet mignon even though I'm not normally a beef eater and it was absolutely delicious! He had the seafood dish of sea bass with shrimp, scallops, etc that was also exceptional! He also loved the... More

Happen to stop in for dinner because restaurant was across the road from our lodge. What a surprise, by far the best meal we had three nights in Monteverde. I tried the Filete Pescado a large Vasca. baked sea bass and shrimp in a cheese and cream casserole with potatoes and mushrooms. Off-the-chart flavors, textures accompanied by an amazing house...

We heard good things about this restaurant and while the atmosphere was quaint and the menu was upscale (steak and fish etc.) We felt like it was overpriced and the food was good but not great.

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
