This was a lovely restaurant, with a relaxed atmosphere, great food, and friendly service. The butterfly theme was followed in all the amazing murals and fittings.

I'm glad we tried this restaurant. The staff was charming, and the décor featured lots of natural woodwork with stunning hand-painted murals featuring the flora and fauna of Costa Rica. The main feature is a magnificent curved stairway leading to the upper level dining room....More
