We all had traditional Costa Rican dishes and they were all excellent. Service was great and the prices were quite good, given the high quality. Definitely thumbs-up.

We went for a late dinner after a day of adventuring. The pineapple juice was wonderful. The staff were very nice and the service was great! We had a steak, and some of the local rice dishes. Overall we really enjoyed it.

We had dinner here one of our 6 nights in Monteverde, and although it was nothing extraordinary it was also a nice meal, decently priced, good service and a pleasant spot to eat. Maybe not a top place if you are only here a night...More

It was hard to pick what to have because everything looked great! We all had something different and it did not disappoint. Portions were large and tasty. As an aside...there is something very special about the french fries in Costa Rica,
