The place is not expensive, the food is really great and the size of the dishes is the largest we had in our trip. The chicken nachos was amazing. Highly recommend.

We had a short time for lunch and this seemed to fit the bill for everyone's dietary requirements and availability. The drinks came very quickly and the food a short while after. The portions were generous and quality was good but nothing to get excited...More

Four of us had a very good lunch here and it was surprising cheap too. Bustling atmosphere, full of locals and good service. Good comidas tipicas, pizzas and salads. Can't fault it at the price, but eating in CR always seems to be good value...More
