Stopped in here on a recommendation from our bnb hostess. We heard they had amazing burgers. The service was lacklustre. The music was cranked way to loud, the seating was uncomfortable and our drinks were not the greatest and quite expensive. The smell of the...grease from the fried chicken joint next door was the final straw = we finished our drinks and booked er out to another place down the road.More

Had the yellow burger - unfortunately a complete fail: Bun hard and dry, crust crumpled to dust between my fingers. Both meats (chicken and beef) killed a second time. One lone tomato wedge, some salad, no sauces (or being evaporated by the dry bun?). Potatoes...extremely overfried.More

good evening. 367nesea. On behalf of the Yellow Bark family, we sincerely apologize for the case. We are sorry you had a bad experience in our restaurant. This experience is not typical of our place. We apologize and hope you return to start that moment.

The burgers are juicy and fresh and the bread is better than average burger buns. Price is low compared to other restaurants. Would definitely recommend this restaurant if you dont want to spend much money like in other restaurants.

Lovely meal at Yellow Bark. We had the Vegetarian Burger on the recommendation of the staff and it did not disappoint. The potato fries were delicious. My daughter had the Hawaiian Burger which was one tasty burger!

Yellow Bark was our first stop when arriving in La Fortuna, and it did not disappoint! A wide selection of food as well as burgers. Waite staff super attentive, as well as helpful in pointing us in the right direction for local excursions. We will...be here for a few days and I'm sure we will be back!More

This is not a place for mature adults. Age 16-25 like it. The burgers did look good. No normal size tables. All but one were high bars. We waited 30 minutes for our order of fajitas which were so salty we could not eat them....Would never go back. I think of this place and regret going and get instant indigestion.More

We were desperate for a decent burger so we went for the highest rated burger in La Fortuna and didn’t disappoint. Just what the doctor ordered. Superb food and excellent service. Yellow burger is a must

Seen this place when we drove past during the day and it it looked good. Came on here to see what it was like, and it had some good review's. So we went. The food itself is good, I think I choose a little poorly...on my behalf. As I saw a meal I have had in the UK and it's different. Obviously! But my wife had a burger and I did have food envy. It looked really good! So my niggling points; No deserts at this place which I found abit strange for a proper sit down restaurant. The table next to us was trying to order drinks and alot of them they didn't have stocked. Thankfully we just picked from the fridge. My biggest issue was when I asked for the bill, he just came over and told me a price. I always keep abit of a running tally in my head and it did roughly add up. But this leaves everyone open to have an argument if some disagrees. Never really had this issue before.More

We ate here on our last night in Fortuna. It’s a small place and easy to find. My mom ordered one of the hamburgers and I ordered the chicken sandwich. The bread they use was soft and fresh, and both our meals were great. They...are served with delicious potatoes, not quite fries but almost wedge-like with tasty seasoning. So good. I ordered a mojito and it was very good-and big!More

The restaurant was empty but our meals still took over 30 mins to arrive. I use meals in the loosest sense of the word as what arrived was barley edible and the ceviche was not edible as it was clearly off given the smell.
