We really enjoyed the homemade chips with 3 different salsas. The atmosphere is not the greatest but it makes up for it with the very friendly staff and better than average dishes.

Clearly the best restaurant we ate at in Costa Rica. Every course was amazing. Appetizers entrées and we did not have room for dessert. Quite reasonable. Dinner for four with liquor was only $121.

We walked to the restaurant from our lodge. Everything was delicious. Was a nice treat after a long day of activities. I recommend this restaurant for families as well as couples dining alone.
