Back at home we have what I refer to as noveau tapas - small plates of highly decorated, tasty food. So, we decided to try the local version in Monteverde/Santa Elena based on TA reviews. No dissappointment, and complete satification. Great, reasonably priced cocktails, and the 11 yo daughter enjoyed her fancy limeaide. In fact, she gave the whole meal 2 thumbs up - rare for her. We tried about 1/3 of the menu and it was all excellent (as good as what we get back home, but with some great tropical variations). The service was friendly and attentive, and the price was quite reasonable - we are, after all, in a big tourist area. The only somewhat negative comment I can make is that the menu being in US dollars and the bill in Colones is a bit bizarre and confusing. Stick to the local currency, geez, we can figure it out.
