“Long wait, okay food for a cheap price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I came here on a Sunday afternoon for cheap eating about 1/2 mile walk from my hotel, Hotel Luisiana. For about $5-$8 you get a decent amount of food. I took my food to go, which I think makes a difference in Costa Rica. I feel that the food suddenly becomes bland/tasteless once you order "to go" (aka "para llevar"). Consider putting spices/sauce on the side before leaving the restaurants, whether you need it or not.

The servers appeared busy (although it was not crowded), so my "to-go" experience lasted about 40 min from start to end. In CR they don't provide plastic utensils/napkins like they do in the US so be prepared.
