“delicious, friendly, fast and not expensive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

We spent a few weeks in Santa Elena area and kept coming back to Donde Henry's again and again. Everything was tasty. The food was always fresh. I liked the cafeteria style - you could choose exactly what you wanted and how much of it. It was simple food, good food - comida tipica - and hit the spot. The restaurant is small and cozy but with enough room to sit down and relax. And the staff made us feel at home.

“Great place to eat like a local.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2011

Great place for quick, cheap, and filling meals. The food is served buffet style, although you tell them which items you want. They have a huge variety of typical foods with several meat dishes. We got a huge meal with beverages for less than $10 each. Definitely worth visiting, especially for families.

“SUPER FOOD, SUPER LOW PRICE!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2010

This resturant is a diamond in the rough!!! Its down a little alleyway driveway but you can see their sign from the road. We ate at this place for lunch and dinner, there was always a variety and the food was priced very cheap compared to the local resturants that were priced way up there. If you eat here, use the brown and red sauce as well, very good!! I totally loved this place and the helpings were hearty!!! Will ALWAYS eat here when returning to Monteverde!! I wish there was a donde henry all throughout costa rica!
