Saw them bringing in fresh food for the kitchen as they opened

We arrived a half hour before they opened, but the staff was already there and they welcomed us in and started to take care of us right away. The owner was bringing in fresh produce for the kitchen. He stopped by our table to chat and make sure we felt at home. Good quality food and great taste... read more

A lovely location very close to Monteverde Inn and trails. We went to celebrate our 46th anniversary and had the filet mignon and I had the spivey lemon chicken breast. Mauricio was our waiter who was wonderful. The food was so good we went back the next night. I had eggplant Parmesan and my husband the Mexican steak. It was... More

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.
