We coasted into town on overheated brakes, and stopped here for lunch. Friendly staff, and delicious food. We especially liked the meaty and flavorful chicken soup/stew. It was a nice touch to get a small soup to begin the meal, and a trato dulce(sweet treat)...to end it. With happy bellies we headed into the traffic madness of San Jose.More

We needed a quick lunch en route from Puerto Viejo de Talamanca to Savegre Hotel. We had to top up with fuel at the same time and this seemed to be the last station for the next 38km. The dish of the day was fish...(corvina?) with veg (5 different nicely cooked) and mash, with optional substitutes. For a total of $28.91 for 3 people incl soft drinks, tax and service, we thought it was good value.More

While travelling from the north to the southwest part of Costa Rica we made a lunch stop just outside of San Jose. The restaurant is located in a small shopping court with in the center a gas station just before you leave town just before...you go into Parque Nacional Los Quetzales. The restaurant serves real Tico food. Taste is good, service is excellent and the restaurant will accept larger groups.More
