The staff were lovely and friendly but the food was really terrible. I ordered the vegetable lasagna as recommended by other reviewers. It was slightly warm round the edges and freezing in the middle. Obviously just stuck in the microwave. When they brought the bill, they still tried to charge for it. Never again.

This highly recommended restaurant serves an excellent steak dinner with friendly and attentive staff. Our meal was wonderful with fresh steamed vegetables and plenty of side dishes. Our bacon wrapped steak was prepared exactly as ordered and you could cut it with a fork. The restaurant ambiance is warm and inviting and if you have a chance speak with the... More

We went here because it was recommended by the staff at our hotel. We enjoyed it so much that we went back again the next night.

The ceviche was good but my filet mignon was okay. The restaurant is definitely catered towards the tourists. Prices were in dollars and menu had pictures of the dishes...

This friendly establishment serves memorable meals and offers many delicious options. My veggie Lasagna was the best ever. Each meal is prepare with much love and serve with care. If you are in Cerro Plano, right before getting to Monteverde, you ought to stop by and taste a meal. Ricodelisupersabrosísimo!!!!!

We had a wonderful lunch here and came back for dinner. The owner was very nice and the food was good. They had local craft beers available which always makes me happy. Burgers at lunch were very tasty as was the steaks and seafood at dinner.

I 100% recommend this restaurant! The food & drinks were aMaZiNg, but even better than that was the service. It was super quick and the friendliest service I had during my entire trip in Costa Rica. I DEFINITELY recommend this restaurant if you are in or near the Monteverde region!
