This place was so good. The power had gone out and they still served us a meal that was fantastic. We had grilled vegetables, grilled steak, tuna, and pork ribs. A real treat this little place was to find!!

Simple Restaurant with an open fire for the BBQ. The first time we had fresh grilled Tuna. The second time Tuna was out so we had fish of the day. Both meals were very delicious. Service was fast and very friendly. Nice place!

This was a really cool experience. They cooked the meat over a giant open fire. My husband's steak was delicious and I enjoyed the chicken with the local casado sides. Not crowded when we arrived (about 5:30pm) but I have heard it gets busy. The restaurant does not actually open until 5:30 which we didn't know until we tried to... More

My wife and I walked by the open-pit style barbecue joint the first night we got into town. We had been in Nicaragua / Costa Rica for a month and had yet to find a solid steak.

Had dinner here on our recent trip. Having been to Argentina a few times, we didn't expect a place in Costa Rica to be this good. Was probably as good, or better, than many of the parrillas that we have been to in Argentina. We had the mixed meat plate, and everything was excellent. Large portions, but we were very... More
