This food was great! We got the wontons which I have been craving more of ever since. I had the sweet and sour chicken, and my wife had the cashew chicken. These are not the actual names, by a generalization of what the dish was. Strongly recommend anyone who goes to La Fortuna try it. The chef comes out and... More

I had a jazzed up rice and bean dish. I can't remember the name. Chaufa? Maybe I just didn't order the right thing. My sister's plate was beautifully presented and she loved the dish. It was some kind of chicken. Mine was just average. I wish I had asked the server for her recommendation.

So excited to find that the number 1 rated place on TripAdvisor was vegetarian/vegan friendly , as both my husband and I are vegan. This place did not disappoint. Best meal in CR so far. We had the vegetarian ceviche which was delicious , and then the tofu Saltada and the vegetarian fried rice. Both very good. The tofu was... More

First time for a Pisco Sour and it was super, the fish dinner was excellent and portions where good size. Try to make reservation if you can they were turning people away.

Neither the worst nor the best food we've had on this trip. Fair wantons, aji de pollo, and beef with broccoli. Good ceviche. There must be better restaurants in la fortuna, not sure why this one is the number one pick. We really enjoyed kappa sushi two nights ago, nicer atmosphere, better food.

We ordered the oyster beef sweet and sour wontons and the cheesey potatoes. The portion sizes were very generous, tasty and at a good price point. Would dine here again.

Had a very nice meal here, It was very good. I had a chicken dish. It was wonderful. I suggest to take a vegetables or chicken dish. My sister took a rice dish it was good but not as amazing as mine.

I visited with my 11 month old daughter, they had no baby chair, which was fine. She sat in her stroller. They make a good pisco sour ! The food was ok, the service was ok, the setting was ok. Certainly nothing to complain about... but I'm afraid I don't get the hype... it was ok 👍🏼

We didn't know that there was a Chinese Peruvian cuisine but I have to say, what a gorgeous find! A stroll away from the main road, this colourful restaurant (I mean the walls and the pop art style of paintings) can accommodate couples and small groups. The kitchen is only separated from the dining room by a big window so... More
