We were taken to La Casona del Mais (La Garita) by a local. It was our introduction to authentic Costa Rican food. The service was good and polite. We all were served a small complimentary bowl of black bean soup. I ordered the Arroz con pollo (rice and chicken--with vegetables)--delicious! Dessert was "masamora" a corn custard (too corny for me). This large restaurant was casual, popular with families. A side of the restaurant overlooks a hill; a palm tree flanked our table,a fruit laden papaya tree stood at the edge of the parking lot. Highly recommend this restaurant.
