This place is fantastic. I ordered a seafood dish here that blew my mind. Seriously, one of the best meals I have ever eaten in my life for about $7. The dish is called Mariscos a la Marinera, I believe. This place is seafood heaven. Everyone here was super friendly, and you can even bring your own beer into this restaurant! It is conveniently located ACROSS (to the West) from the Judicial Court House in Alajuela. You can see signs for it or just ask around. It's fairly easy to find. Seriously, the best restaurant I went to in Alajuela hands down. Recommended from a local who lives there. You will not find an American in here, guaranteed : ) Helps to know a little bit of Spanish.
