We took Casado chicken and were very pleased. It had a nice flavor and was well cooked. Miss Miriam is not a fancy restaurant, but well worth a visit!

Seriously people!! A must eat. We had the fish filet but asked for it to be prepared spicy. The flavours were tremendous and our best meal here!! The service comes with big friendly smiles and the chef obviously prepared the meal with love. She even came out to chat and meet our Pitbull Gigi who was also allowed to visit.... More

We had 2 fantastic meals at Miss Miriam's. Dinner was great, the meats were tender and superbly spiced. The sides were served family style, very generous portions.

We had lunch on a Sunday while watching the soccer game. We ordered the Caribbean chicken and it was delicious! Real Caribbean flavors, really loved it. The chicken came with Rice and Beans, patacones and salad, so much we couldn't eat everything. Friendly service and a good price. Go here for real Caribbean food!

Strangely enough, Tuesday isn't a good day to eat out in Tortugero (a lot of places are closed).  We were hungry, and tired from the bus journey from San Jose, so we just wanted food. The place is next to the soccer field and the two ladies... More

The food was delicious. I had chicken in Caribbean spices, plantains, two types of rice and a salad. The prices were reasonable and the staff was very friendly.

We had our first lunch here and enjoyed the food, the location, the staff and the atmosphere. We sat out the rain, drank beers, and had a fabulous fish, chicken and gallo/patacones and salad lunch. The staff were really friendly and everything tasted like expertly cooked homemade food...
