We went here for dinner and lunch, the food was the best I had in 2 months of traveling around Costa Rica! Tasty, interesting veggie options (a nice change from gallo pinto) and delicious brownies. The owners are lovely too.

Great service, atmosphere, great food, can’t believe you are in the jungle. Very clean. We went there with 3 kids and two adults. Different league than the other places in Tortuguero for 20% more in price.
