Suggested by our hotel as one good local food. Normal restaurant, no particular welcome or service in general. A bit “industrial” probably because of its very good ranking. Fair

Great place to eat as you could tell, since it was very busy. We ate there for lunch and the portions were very large and they have a very large menu selection. We figured it was good as the local police were eating there!

My wife and I hit Sabor Tico after a guided night hike through Santamaria. There's something very satisfying about a plate of grilled meats after walking for two hours in pitch darkness amongst pit vipers, tarantulas and other nocturnal predators starting their evening hunts. Sabor...More

The service was very good; the items on the menu looked very interesting but when the food arrived it turned out not to be as exciting as we had hoped for.

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

Annie - Monte Verde ( Santa Elena) is not near any beachs but in the mountains. The closest beach would be at least a 4 hour drive. The roads in the area are mainly dirt and can be very rutty and pot holed. Also the roads in... More
