We were starving when we landed so looked for a place on our way from the airport. Great outdoor seating and local cuisine. I would recommend the seafood soup and the grilled chicken. The staff is friendly and answers any questions you might have. Also recommend the pineapple smoothies or the after dinner coffee, which they make tableside.

The food was ok but the price was too high for what we ate! At least we will never go back. They also took a long time to serve us.

It looked really nice and we liked the outdoor eating concept with great typical Costa Rican artifacts as decorations throughout. We ordered our last casados in Costa Rica. They were good but we had had better during our vacation... More

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...)
