Everything we had here was very tasty and the portions were well worth the price. I ad the Casado with Pork, my wife had shrimp with Rice and my son had the Hamburger. He usually does not eat all of the meat in a burger...because he likes the bread more than the meat. The meat was his favorite part of this one.More

We ate here six times in 8 days, they have a great view upstairs. The breakfasts are great. Good coffee, fruit juices. They have a bakery with tasty treats for the Drake Bay Trail (do the trail at least to the tent camp get a...pina colada.) Dinner is good as well, fish, chicken pork, the best rice and beans in Costa Rica. Excellent home cooking. Everybody that works here works all day, 14-15 hours everyday, so give them a break, and a tip.More

We only had coffee and cake, but it was very clean, very new, and the service was very good. Best place in town we reckoned!

We had something to eat and drink twice here over a few days, lingering to bird-watch and enjoy the upstairs open-air views towards the bay. Handy grocery store and laundry service available downstairs too.

We try this place a couple of times a year, always with the hope it might get better. It never does, sadly. The view is nice from the second floor, and the food is decent (if basic and a little overpriced). The baked goods look...lovely and the bathrooms are always clean. however the service is verrrry rarely friendly, and often just straight up bad. The last time I was there, I asked for a slice of limon to go with my beverage and the server told me they didn't have any limones. I had just been in the grocery store downstairs (where they had limones) and happened to notice that all of the trees around town were laden with ripe limones, as I had never seen this person before I thought they were perhaps new and asked "sorry, are you sure? not even in the kitchen?". They shrugged and replied "I don't think so, and if we do have any, we don't use them for drinks". wha?More

We had a couple of meals here, a lunch and a breakfast (downstairs). Both were fine. Service was ok and the food fresh. Strongly recommend the breakfasts. It's open from 6 and they do a good range, reasonably priced. There also a lovely bakery selling...a great selection of freshly made cakes, and other baked goods. Great idea for a quick breakfasts or cheap lunch. Good WiFi and large clean toilets too.More

The service in this place was the worst we've had so far during 2 weeks in CR. The waiter didn't pass our order to the kitchen, so we waited for one hour for the food - for nothing. Mistakes happen, but they didn't bother apologizing...at all, on the contrary the were very rude.Can't recommend the place!More

This was a terrible service. It was clear they don’t like tourists and barely wanted to serve us. Incredible for a place that lives from tourism. At least the pineapple cake was good !

This place was recommended by the hotel manager where we stayed. We ate here (6 adults + 6 kids) several times during our stay. Both breakfast and dinner. Food was great. Everyone loved it and noone got sick. We had the same emotionless waiter every...time. He did the job flawlessly though, considering his almost total lack of English ( and our lack of Spanish). The view at sunset is awesome. Recommend!More

We ate here and found the food average. The place is nice and the service good. It has a fairly large menu for Drake and prices were fair. The owner was very helpful in describing their dishes and they have an onsite bakery as well...for trail snacks.More
