I spent the past 8 day is different parts of Costa Rica and this restaurant was hands-down my favorite and most of the people in my travel group agreed with me. I travelled with a group of 8 so we were looking for a place...to seat us all that wouldn't break the bank so admittedly we may have originally picked Yellow Bark because the price was good but we were blown away. I got the ceviche as my main dish and it was to die for and their burgers were so much better than anticipated. I also tried some of the ribs and everyone in my group was happy and full after their meals.More

Alex was amazing, attentive, brought the orders out by himself when the restaurant was absolutely slammed. This little spot is well worth it.

We all agree this was our favorite eating spot (of 3 nights) in La Fortuna. We had the place to ourselves (we eat early being on Eastern time). Service was prompt and great; the food was all very fresh and tasty. Husband & I ordered...mango dacquiris, then watched the server cross the street & walk down to the green grocer's. Turns out he'd run out of mangos and needed to buy some more for our drinks! The food was fairly basic, but very tasty - included son's hamburger El Gordito - which was very large & we all shared; a chicken dish, and tilapia - with rice and veg. We recommend highly.More

Food was great, service was great, price was great. We each had different Costa Rican dishes and shared. All four were excellent, food was locally sourced, freshly prepared, and generous portions. Highly recommend if you are in the arenal/la fortuna area.
