I had been going to la posada since 1990’s, every time I go to Costa Rica I do all within my possibilities to go back, if I could I will go every day, but the drive from San José it could be challenging with the...traffic. The food is excellent the service excellent the atmósfera excelente. This is my first review, I am trying to cover all my visits, never is to late. With the COVIC-19, I am hoping to make it next month.More

We were in Cartago for a day trip with friends and someone said lets go to the best Costa Rican restaurant in Cartago which we thought might be in Cartago - a bit of a drive later we got to Cervantes, a lovely little typical...Costa Rican village out towards Turialba. But it was worth the trip indeed. The food is the best example of typico food you can find, deliciously fresh with perfect service from a well organized team in a spotless and delightful restaurant ambiance. Great job!More

These are the best tortillas in town. You should definitely stop by if you are around. It's a family type restaurant with a great variety of typical food. And they also serve great coffee. Highly recommended and always enjoy the experience.

We had to backtrack 12 km to get here on the recommendation of some of our Costa Rican friends. It will fit in well with a trip to Irazu volcano and the surrounding areas. They are known for their special tortillas. I suggest the extra...cheesy one. It is the size of a full dinner plate and is like a cheesy polenta pancake. The restaurant is decorated with lots of vintage photographs and paraphernalia. The wait staff is extremely friendly and efficient and the Mora batida is excellent.More

All the reviews really represent my experience here. They have cheese stuffed tortillas which are the house special. Reminded me of an arepa. Carne asada was excellent as well. Had the house special soup, great. Very friendly and attentive service. Feels like you are going...to a close friends place even the first time you are there. Lots of interesting old things in cabinets and on the walls on display. Highly recommend if you're in Cartago, perhaps on the way to or back from one of the volcanos.More
