Fantastic fare! Fresh, farm to table delights! Delicious salads with a choice of unique dressings you'll find nowhere else! Amazing trout! Incomparable batidos de maracuya! (Passion fruit milk shakes) In a quiet, delightfully charming, and authentic Volcan/Cerro Punta environment!

We stopped here for lunch, and it was delightful. First we had a salad made from the freshest vegetables, and it was followed up with a chicken sandwich. Yum! We went back and had supper the next day, and again the freshness and quality of the food was awesome. Plus the staff was very helpful and friendly. And the prices... More

Loved the pasta with pesto sauce. It was delicious! Caprese salad was perfection with both red and yellow tomatoes and super fresh cheese. Service was friendly and efficient. Coffee was good too.

The appitizer was outstanding...a eggplant concotion you didn't want to end. My main was a pork chop with strawberry reduction. Very good but pork was thin which accounts for the driness. Overall, a very satisfying meal with a very... More

Nice place, very peaceful, excellent food. I had the Roman Steak with yummy sweet onion and steam potatoes. Fruit smoothies are simply awesome. I would return anytime.

We visit Volcan and Cerro Punta several times a year--usually on Sundays, family day in the area. A nice meal for lunch can be difficult to find. But, having had a friend recommend Cafe Volcan as "really quite nice", we decided to give it a try. We arrived 20 minutes before noon and there wasn't any sign of activity. Disappointed,... More

Café Volcan is a great restaurant. We have eaten there many times and have always had delicious meals. The chicken is always tender and the salads are made with a lot of vegetables from their garden. They have a choice of entre, salad, vegetables for one price. The kitchen is in full view and you can watch your food being... More

Whenever you go to Volcan, this place is a must to visit. Great food, attention and place. The food is unforgettable, so is the coffee. You have to try the natural salad dressings, with every visit you can try different starters and main courses, therr is no way to leave dissapointed!

We had a great lunch at this café. The food is fresh and very tasty. The place is nicely decorated and we really felt at home. Contrary to other local restaurants the food is light tasty and not oily. You feel that the vegetables had been picked one hour ago from the owner's garden. the fresh fruits smoothies are a... More
