“Favorite place in Fortuna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I have been through Fortuna on several occasions over the years and so have eaten at several lodges and restaurants, but my favorite is Steakhouse El Tobogan. It is an open restaurant and looks rather basic, but the food is excellent. I ate here with my brother and sister-in-law and we all loved our dishes. Steak, chicken or fish -- it's all good. The owner is very nice, and the waitresses were great as well. The prices fall into the range of good value for the money. Come and eat here -- you won't be sorry.
