“Best food in Monteverde--hands down!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

We came here twice in our four-day stay in Monteverde, once for lunch and once for afternoon beers and chips & guac. Incredibly good food! It is certainly worth the wait in the long-ish line during lunch, but have your partner or friends grab a seat on the great patio--very good vibe about the restaurant and amazingly delicious food!

“Good food, and cheap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Really good food, super cheap, and really to understand menu. Barely any wait for the food, even when it was busy. Good atmosphere, though a couple of the local dogs did scare a few of the customers at the next table!

“Delicioso”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Even though tacos are not typical Costa Rican food, these tacos are a must-have when visiting Monteverde. I had the fish taco and my boyfriend had the chicken tacos. The ingredients are fresh and the creative combination of flavours is awesome! You must like spicy though, I do, but my boyfriend found the salsa a bit too spicy. Enjoy!
