“Great tapas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

During the day you can have breakfast or lunch at this place. We had lunch and that was very good. However, we came back for dinner and then you could order tapas. The tapas is really good and the portions are also quite huge (4 of them were enough for the 2 of us).

The staff is also very friendly.

“Not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

I had meatball sandwich for supper and a breakfast menu.
The meatball sandwich was not bad nor special.
The had one breakfast menu that came with pinto(rice with beans), eggs, toast, tomato & avocado, and bacon. It costed 3300 colons(us$6.6). And I add a cup of black coffee. It was 550 colons($1.1).
The waiter served the food but there was no tomato & avocado. I said to him the menu said it came with tomato & avocado. Latter he served some slices of tomato and avocado on a small plate.
The pinto was a little sour. I don't know why it was. It didn't have sour cream. I hadn't had sour pinto before.
The bacon was burnt, crunchy and bitter. When you have breakfast there, You'd better choose sausage or cheese instead of bacon.
The price was nice.
The breakfast menu was relatively cheap in Montezuma. It was the cheapest typical menu that i had looked for there.
The sauces was very nice. I really love their chili sauce.

“Great Breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

We had breakfast here, perfectly made sandwich with lovely home made hash browns, coffee was really good as well, the owner seemed friendly and all the sauces were home made and really tasty. You could easily walk past this place without noticing it but if you do not have breakfast included with your digs i would really recommend.

“Ate their everyday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Loved this place - super friendly owner and wonderful menu with fantastic choices. Everything is house made - loved the chipotle aioli and basil mayo served with every dish. The fish tacos were amazing and the casado delicious.

“Good lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We caught them before they closed for the off-season and had a nice lunch there. We all ordered different sandwiches and they were good. Better than a lot of our food in CR. Hope they re-open. Roasted veg sandwich was great.
