Miss Junie's needs to keep up with what's going on around it. Next door is the truly sublime Wild Ginger which could keep up with any major urban dining in the world, and Buddha Cafe down the street is serving simple but still thoughtfully created with fresh ingredients by people who clearly love food. Costa Ricans in general are not as obsessed with good food as people in Asia, Europe and North America, and it shows in Miss Junie's.
We were a group of 8 and had a range of options from fish to jerk chicken to vegetarian plates, and none of us were impressed. The vegetarian plate was indeed what people in the 1970s thought a vegetarian plate should be - for someone who really just didn't want to eat.
Don't rest on reputation Miss Junie! - hire an aspiring and creative cook traveling the streets of Tortuguero to totally shake up your menu. Your tour groups from Germany will still come - they'll just enjoy their meals a lot more!
I must say though, our service was excellent, and the included breakfast of gallo pinto and fruit was more than adequate.
