“not what I expected...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I had dinner at the El Churrasco after discovering that the french restaurant in town had closed down for the season (it was at the very end of high season). The rustic decor could be charming without the fluorescent lighting and the food is good, nothing extraordinary and a little expensive for what it was.

“Nice Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Great place and the owner was extremely friendly... If you don't know Spanish spend a few hours with him and you are good to go. The restaurant was very clean and the music was a perfect match to our meal.

“The O'Briens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

The family bungalow we had stayed in for four nights was very clean, roomy, and just right for a family. The owner and employees were very welcoming and quick to offer their best service to us. There's no doubt that we'll be coming back here again.

“Best in costa rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We ate here after visiting Poas Volcano. Great service, great meat. We had the tenderloin Rockfort and tenderloin with other sauce, both great. House chimichurri is very good, and the house wine too. This was last day after visiting Costa Rica for a week, we have been in Tortuguero, Arenal, Monteverde , this was by far tge best we ate, in terms og quality meat.
