My wife's favorite restaurant in Liberia. Good value with large portion sizes and typical Costa Rica dishes. I heartily recommend their burger (has ham and bacon...)

This restaurant is conveniently located between airport and rental car companies. We had lunch prior to our departure flight. It was amazing. The arroz con pollo dish had great flavor. I enjoyed it so much I ordered one to go for dinner that night.

My husband loves their chicken and rice which you can't find in a lot of restaurants. We would highly recommend this restaurant over food at the airport. I have tried a variety of dishes there and they were... More

This place was not even busy when we walked in, staff standing by didn't acknowledged us at all, we had to waive them many times to get the menu and our order taken! The food servings were enormous portions but the taste were terrible. Very pricey! I wouldn't recommend this place at all! Better off buying a mcdo burger in... More

This restaurant mainly caters to americans that are flying in or out and staying near the airport, and they have it priced as though you are in chicago or DC.. The food is fine- but they were out of several items on the menu when we went for dinner. Nothing stood out as more than average, except the price! We... More

We went to this restaurant because our shuttle van was meeting us here. We decided, since we had just arrived in the country the night before, we would get there a bit early and have a bit to eat if we liked it. Took the public bus across the street from the Hilton - 1 mile and there we were.... More

Hey people I'm from Costa Rica so I can really tell you what's goo food.. This place is horrible and expensive.. Just because they are all dressed up doesn't mean is topical food. And they have false advertisement. Sorry but this place is a disappointment.
