We were recommended to go to this place by a few local people so we gave it a shot. The food was okay, the service was good, and the waitress was very sweet, but two things about this place were really unappealing: 1. Old food. We got there around dinner time and noticed (uncovered) trays by the counter that had... More

Really tasty Costarican food and friendly staff. Had a lovely lunch! The beef is really nice and the tilapia (fish) really tasty! Give it a go if you want to taste the real food of the country!

This was one of our favorite restaurants on or trip, so much so we ate there for lunch and then came back for dinner! First I had the Seabass with garlic (and let me tell you, it was fresh!!) SO good! Dinner I had filet mignon not what I was expecting, being from Florida but still great!

The complimentary rice pudding at the end is so delicious that I could eat a bowl of it. The pricing is perfect and its in the... More

Staff seemed to appreciate their customers and we felt like family. Their dinners are a great value and have generous portions. They do offer beer but no mixed drinks. Everything was tasty and very fresh.... More
