My friend and I ordered absolutely delicious rotisserie chicken and salad take out from Raulito's. So inexpensive for such great quality. I would absolutely eat there again!

We arrived famished and this place satisfied! The rotisserie chicken was delicious, and just 6000 colones, - what a deal to feed 4 very hungry travelers! The empanadas were also quite a treat and very satisfying. I had not had empanadas this good since back in Chile. and the tortillas were incredible, too, along with the salad that came with... More

Love this place! It is a hole in the wall, but the roast chicken is so tasty. I had dinner in there with my roast chicken and salad. Well worth it, a few dollars can feed you there. There is only like one table there, so a lots of people buy take out.

Do yourself a favor and get some rotisserie chicken from here. The place is small and homey ... There are maybe 3-4 seats. We got ours to go. After a week of bland tico food, this hit the spot. Chicken is tender, juicy, and flavorful. The empanada con pollo was also good. 5 stars!

I spent two nights in this town and I ate here three times. Raul, besides being so friendly, makes some of the best rotisserie chicken I've ever had. I knew it would be good when I saw locals and a police officer dining. Also, get the salad, it helps make the meal.

We were waiting for a bus to selvatura and were feeling a bit peckish (no pun intended) and grabbed an empanada for the road. Delicious and cheap! An empanada with pico de gallo was 1000c. We went back the next day for a quick take away lunch and had more empanadas and the grilled chicken. Both were great! Loved this... More

The best food in Monteverde and Santa Elena. We got tired of the same old touristy joints. Grab some empanadas or a combination plate. Even the salad was very very delicious served with homemade dressing. Highly recommend this place to any tourist who wants to get an authentic feel. This is a simple to go kind of joint with very...

Had a whole grilled chicken there, very tasty and not that fatty, but not very crispy either. Friendly and quick service. If you want to have some chicken in Santa Elena, this is your place to fetch it, as the only have one bar table inside their stall.

I just happened to come by this place. Raulito was a friendly owner. I had the Empanada and the Chicken of course. The salsa was very good. I liked the Chicken over the empanada. I returned again the next day. It is a small store. Not a restaurant so do not expect much.
