We had dinner here on our last night in town. I remember this place fondly from my last visit to Monteverde, and I was happy to see that (although they moved to a new location), they are as good as ever.

This restaurant is decoarated beautifully with hand painted walls and morph butterfly metal art hanging from the ceiling. The waitstaff is friendly and helpful and the food excellent. Its right next to the Orchid garden which is not to be missed either . You'll be glad you ate here.

My friends and I came here for dinner while we were staying in Monteverde and WOW. The food was incredible, and the service was top notch. We each tried different meals, and also had dessert. The price was very reasonable, and I would highly recommend coming here for dinner. Pura Vida.

This was recommended by our hotel. So glad we went. Food was excellent. Very nice and English speaking waiter. I had a blackberry fruit drink and typical Costa Rican meal. Good flavor.

We have eaten here on an other trip to the area. We returned because we like the food that much. My husband had a steak with bleu cheese.My plate was the "tipical" CR dinner with beans and rice , salad and chicken. It is a pleasant spot with good food.
