Restaurant details
Reviewed February 18, 2014

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.

We stopped at this place on our way from the airport to Monteverde. It's not the kind of place I would have tried on my own, but fortunately, some of my colleagues had been there before. It's just a sort of open-air café, really, but with an extensive menu of local specialties centered around corn; an important part of the CR diet. I had the Tacos de Carnitas, and they were excellent. So were the fresh fruit juices. Others had the tamales and raved about them. Very pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff, and good prices. By all means go if you get the chance!
