Don't know why this place was nearly empty on a Friday evening. The service was fast, friendly and the atmosphere and decor was great. I ordered the fettuccine Alfredo with chicken. It was delicious and the portion more than enough. The price was better. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the area.

We both got the fettuccine alfredo with chicken and I could have eaten it every day while we were there. The portion size was really good as well. It was so creamy and the chicken was so good too. It was up the hill and walking distance from Monteverde Inn. This restaurant is not in town so it's off the... More

One of view places were we received a warm welcome in Monteverde. As opposed to the rest of Costa Rica were people extremely warm. We had a delicious meal in a cosy place. Prices were reasonable. Hidden gem. Especially when you are staying in the Monteverde Country Lodge this place highlights your trip.

Restaurant De Lucia is on the road going to the butterfly gardens. We ate there there twice. The free appetizer plate with soft tacos and 4 fillings was very good (guacamole, tomato, salsa) . Our filet mignon and hamburgers were excellent. The young waiter was super nice. There are lots of beautiful paintings and decorations which add to a pleasant... More

Excellent service. A little in the pricey side, however, the portions and freshness of the food compensate. If you are staying at Monteverde Inn, you will receive a 10% discount! The blackboard outside was was pulled me in 😂

The hotel restaurant was standing room only, so across the street from the Monteverde Country Lodge is Restaurante De Lucia. Turns out to be an excellent choice, not overpriced and menu loaded with interesting choices. Good services, but closes at 9 so go earlier than later.

This place is definately recommendable if you want to eat a good steak. The meat is being served with some good vegetables.

This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and great service. It was recommended by our hotel staff and was within walking distance so we tried it. We came back the next day to try the ceviche, which was very good. The only thing I would caution is that the prices do not include tax and gratuity, as is usually the case... More
