“Bad room. Good restaurant.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Our room didn't smell so good or have any toiletries. On the flip side, the restaurant is really good (food and service) and they have movies every night.

“Healthy, fresh, good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We had the avocado sandwich and the tuna steak sandwich. Both good, but not inexpensive. The restaurant is interesting and in a good location. They also show movies at night, if you need something to do.

“Our favorite place in Montezuma”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

The breakfast menu was good, the lunch menu was fantastic, and the dinner menu was great. Perfect place for vegetarians and tex-mex fans. They also had all of the traditional Costa Rican dishes, sushi, and some other choices thrown in there. A bit pricy, but good for the quality of the food. The majority of the staff spoke English very well but sometimes confused edits made to an order. I would highly recommend the Buddah Burrito, the Quesadillas, and the Traditional Black Bean Soup, but would stay away from the nachos because the cheese re-hardened before I even got my plate. Movies with dinner were a great catch, although some nights were better than others.

“Good vegan options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

I had the veggie fajitas, which came with three little fried tortilla cups filled with beans, salsa, and guacamole. Very tasty!
