“Great nachos and guacamole”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Las Delicias came highly recommended. We weren't terribly hungry so we just ordered nachos and guacamole. Both were excellent... best we had ever had. Casual, friendly and very reasonably priced.

“Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

We enjoyed lunch here and returned the next day for breakfast with some expats who live there full time. The food was very good, and we like the open-air setting. Cindy is an awesome waitress. Berta (Bertha?) was very welcoming, too.

“Local Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

This is where all of the locals go for breakfast and lunch. The food is very good and reasonably priced. Menus come in both English and Spanish. If you are coming into Nuevo Arenal from LaFortuna, pass the German Bakery and go almost to the top of the hill. Las Delicias is on the right.

“Great Lunch Stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

We stopped along at Las Delicias for a lunch break. The vanilla milkshakes were to die for. The paninis were tasty and service was excellent. Salad was some of the freshest we've had. Great value and great little venue.

“Wow! Awesome seafood by an undiscovered chef!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

Las Delicia's is an unassuming cantina in a small shopping center on the main road in Nuevo Arenal. My hosts at Lucky Bug B&B recommended Las Delicia's. Wow, were we impressed! My husband got both the Marlin and the Tuna and said they were terrific -fresh and expertly prepared. I had the spaghetti carbonara which was excellent, and my son had the spicy pork medallions. We live in Houston and travel quite a bit and are VERY picky about food. This food was surprisingly great....the best we found in that part of Costa Rica. I highly recommend it.
