My boyfriend and I went there and we really enjoyed our experience. The staff was polite and respectful, the place was clean and the food was good (the rice was well seasoned). Overall it was a little bit pricy but it was good. For the price, it's what you should expect for a touristic place like tortugero. If you go... More

This was the only place we ate out at while we were in Tortuguero. The food was good and authentic Caribbean food. The woman who was working there was really friendly too.

Had dinner there 2 weeks ago as part of the Lindbland National Geographic expedition. We came in as large group of 24. The place is very simple with as I expected no A/C. This is normal for the area. The Caribbean chicken dish was fabulous and the servers very friendly.

We did not stay here, we just came here for lunch. The food was acceptable, but far from our favorite meal in CR. The bathrooms were not clean. Getting to Miss Junies is a bit sketchy. You walk past some uncomfortable areas to arrive on her property. Once you are on site, it's fine, but I'm super glad that was... More

I had lunch there - I wanted to sit down and cool off from the heat, and have access to the gardens for birding. So I got what I wanted, plus lunch. Which was OK, but not special. There was only one other table - the place was practically deserted.

The place its self is beautiful. It's a plantation style building, lots of wood and it screams good quality in its architectural design. The gardens are amazing and the trees attracted both green macaws and the rainbow billed toucan - both of which we saw from the veranda which was fantastic. I really enjoyed sitting out on the veranda and... More
