“Good, simple food and ambiance in bustling heart of Alajuela!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I often stop here for dinner on my way in or out of CR - food is great (try the simple but filling casado with pork or chicken; ceviche also good) - relaxed setting up on second floor, off the street - usually music or futbol game playing. Great with a crowd or solo (tiny dining area outside overlooking rhe street recommended if you're solo) - and friendly, efficient staff/service.

“Great Food, Good Prices, Nice Ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2011

We live in Costa Rica and we frequently go to Mansarda Restaurant when we're in Alajuela. The food is great, service prompt and friendly, a nice mellow ambiance. We especially like to sit on the outdoors balcony. The menu is Costa Rican -- which means steakhouse plus traditional Costa Rican dishes like Rice with Chicken (Arroz con Pollo) which is WAY better tasting than it sounds!
