Don Rufino is in La Fortuna just off 142 near where it becomes 1 way (turn right if you're coming from Arenal Volcano/the resorts to the west). It has a giant bar, lots of tables, is open air like most restaurants, and has a professional, bilingual staff with fantastic food. My friend had a filet mignon, I had a schezwuan style chicken, and our other friend had some kind of soup. All the food was fantastic, but a little pricey for the area (around $10-$14 for most entrees). Still, it was totally worth it, the drinks were cheap, and there are lots of mixed ticos and international people hanging out.
