The staff is friendly and the restaurant is clean. It was an easy walk from our hotel. I expected really good cuisine based on the reviews and was pretty disappointed. The menu is not extensive. The dinner choices are beef, chicken, & fish prepared simply, no fancy sauces or anything. I ordered the ceviche. While I appreciate that it was... More

We are staying at the Cala Lodge in Monteverdi and as everyone knows who has been here the town is quite spread out and can be challenging to get around! As our walk through town did not reveal any restaurants that did not look like tourist traps, we decided to eat at De Lucia which on the side road of... More

Had grilled chicken sandwiches for lunch and then had to come back for dinner, which did not disappoint. $3 house wine by the glass was good and a welcome bargain.

We went for dinner, the food was delicious and the service was great. We had local craft beer, made not far from the restaurant, and we were offered an appetizer to share for our table.

We were in Monteverde with my in-laws and two young children (1 and 2 years old) and this place was recommended by our host there. We absolutely loved it. We were there for three nights and ate at this restaurant every night, which is unusual for us as we usually like to try different places. I think between us we... More

Tuesday a group of us met here to watch Costa Rica play USA in soccer. The staff was great...very friendly and checked on us frequently. The food was excellent and large portions. The beer was cold and those that had mixed drinks were pleased as well.

We chose this place because of the good recommendations we found on Tripadvisor. Generally we are not big on complaining but for this experience, we feel like we just need to. First of all, we did not receive the free starter (on the menu is states that you get one with every main course you order). When asking why we... More

Went here as a "lazy" solution as it was across of the street to our hotel an we did not want to go into town anymore. Excellent service, fine food and correctly priced. Recommended!
