“Very good casado in center of town with nice ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2015 NEW

The food here was delish. We both had the chicken casado, and both thoroughly enjoyed it. The waitress was very nice as well and the location is very convenient. We have been in costa rica for several days now and this place would be one of the ones we'd recommend. Yummy!

“Huge helpings - very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2015

This is a great place. Large servings, well prepared and served. Great smoothie drinks. They just have a couple of vegetarian choices, neither with much protein but tasty. This seems to be a country that is not great for vegetarians unless you bring your own bars as a supplement.

The food here was excellent, and we came here twice. The price was good for the amount of food we got. The staff was very kind.

“Reasonable prices & good people watching”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2015

This is a casual open air restaurant which had a nice breeze blowing through it on the day we ate lunch there. Prices are reasonable, food is good and drinks were great. We had a table close to the sidewalk which looked out on the church square. We enjoyed watching all the locals and tourists walking around outside the restaurant. Recommend getting a table close to the front of the restaurant so you can watch all the activity on the sidewalk/street. We will definitely return to this cafe on our next visit to La Fortuna.
