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

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

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
