“Good deal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Friendly service, good price and clean place in the midle of the town. I can recomend rice with shrimps (made like a rizito) its nice portion for good money. Also I can recomend mango refresh cocktail. I have been here twice for a lunch and all the times I was satisfied.

“good cheap eat in Santa Elena”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

The food was good and hefty proportions. Good choice for hungry travellers on a budget. We spent about $20 for both us us and had two beers each. The pizza joint right below is a good bet too. Cant remember the name though.

“Small portions and one diner was sick all night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

Disappointing experience. Quick service gets a tick but small portions didn't really leave our team of three feeling we had eaten. All well and good as it was relatively inexpensive until one of us spent the night being violently sick. No other culprit possible as he had not eaten all day or drunk local water. Must have been the salad or ham in the "special" burger.

“Casada local food excellent value and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We ate here twice; eat the casada local CR plate; cheap at about $7 but worth it - since we were on a budget with 2 starving teen kids who always want food; ate pork chop, fish, beef and all were great and good size portions. Nice little place - very crowded and food was fresh.

“Best Casado I've Had in CR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Normally a casado is nothing special--just something to eat. Today's pork chop casado at Maravilla was like high cuisine, though.
