We ate here twice in 3 nights simply because it was THAT awesome. The food was delightful, tasty, and value for money. The highlights for us were the cute cat who lingered hopefully around the tables and the gecko who lived in the light shade!...More

Nice place in downtown La Fortuna. Very Americanized. You almost feel like you’re not in Costa Rica, but love the open air flowing thru. Food taste and presentation was really good. Not cheap, but nice quality.
