We stopped here for lunch. Great little restaurant. We had the chicken and rice with beans. YOU JUST HAVE TO TRY THE SWEET PLANTAINS COOKED IN HONEY..... Very rustic decor with a fireplace in Costa Rica.

What a great and simple place, in a good way. A non pretencious menu with solid dishes, very well executed and delicious local food. Owners and garzons were super gentle with us. You have to try the “fresas en agua” as a drink, it’s amazing.
