Great, clean place with very good food & service. Wish we were in town longer to go back for more. Sad to see what this unnecessary lockdown is doing to CR and the rest of the world. Go out to eat & take some precautions,...you’ll be fine!More

Ate in most of the restaurants along this bit in La Fortuna and this one was definitely our favourite. Varied menu and very tasty food, great service. Lovely milkshakes too!

I was just passing by and stopped in on a whim. Jennifer and Ana Yancy attended to me. Two lovely ladies that were extremely helpful and pleasant. My Spanish is very rusty and Jennifer heard me struggling so she spoke to me in English. I...ordered the tenderloin skewer. It came with veggies and potatoes. I also had a lemonade with peppermint which was very refreshing. The tenderloin skewer was extremely delicious. It was cooked to perfection and the sides complimented the meat. It came with a sauce with oil and garlic. If you are a meat eater, I highly recommend!More

I was driving back after my visit to the Hanging Bridges when I decided to stop at this place to get a quick lunch. The décor is nice and open and staff is very friendly. The food is tasty and well priced for the area....It was a late lunch at just before 2 pm so it wasn't too full and service was quick.More

We had a cheeseburger and a lomito, the meat is great and freshly grilled almost in front of you. Cute cozy place with nice wooden tables. Small/short menu but of good quality which is what counts at the end.More

Our family stopped by the restaurant randomly during our visit to Arenal. Lunch time in the restaurant was pretty quiet. You definitely have quiet a few people that speak English. Food is out of this world. Service was absolutely great. Note that my daughter has...dairy, peanut, shellfish allergies - had absolutely no problem.More
