“Delicious local fare”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Yum, this place is so good! It features local cuisine that you won't find in tourist haunts, so be ready to try something new and go with the flow. The decor is nothing special, but the experience is down to earth and true to the area. Highly recommended if you're nearby! It helps if you can at least somewhat communicate in Spanish when ordering.

“Great local place to enjoy true Costa Rican cuisine and culture!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Dona Denise is a great cook and always with a smile! I live down the road from Los Corrales and every time we stop by to eat in the restaurant or have a few cold beers at the bar, she welcomes us with open arms! This is a typical place, true Costa Rican cuisine and culture. Don't be surprised if someone stops by on horseback! And don't expect a five star experience just because of a five star rating, it gets it because for what it is, it is the best possible as a local "joint"! Simple and rustic you will see locals stopping by chatting it up and playing pool in the back room. Some nights there is live music. Food is always fresh and the portions are huge...keep in mind you are paying around $6-8 dollars for very fresh and deliciously prepared meal! If you are the type of traveler that judges a place from the outside and walks away from anything that looks slightly below par, step inside and give this place a try! You won't be disappointed. If you like to explore and love to try new things...you will love Los Corrales and the typical environment. I feel bad for the tourists who come to this area and cling to the expat places just because they are worried about a language barrier and immersing themselves in the area because they really miss out on one of the most charming places in the area! I recently had an amazing filet of fish in herbs, insanely delicious fresh guacamole and crispy crispy fries. A new neighbor to the area commented that his hamburger was better than many he had had in the states. Each time I eat here I beyond satisfied with my food! Thanks Denise! Can't wait for the next meal with you!!!

“Great place to have typical food and a good cold beer”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Stopped in for a quick bite and a cold beer before watching the locals play softball one Sunday afternoon. We had great service and the coldest beer we had had all day! Very local hangout.
