Delicious lunch stop for real Costa Rican cuisine. Try the casado; best we've had after 12 days driving across the country.

We visited the locals Sabor rather than the downtown one. Large servings and tasty local food. My friend left his phone there and the staff held it until we could pick it up. Honest group of people.

This is a great restaurant of typical Costa Rican food. Extremely friendly staff, great food and big portions. And if that isn't food enough, the price is right! A must visit on this tourist friendly town.

If you want something cost effective and quick eat here. Don't believe the hype it serves traditional Costa Rican food but it's nothing to write home about. We had much better dishes for similar prices in other restaurants during our Costa Rica holiday. You can...More

The prices are around $5-$8 per dish but comes with a lot of food. We found this place to be the best food for the price in Monteverde. If you check out the prices on their photos of the menu just divide the price by 568.5... More
