We ate a casado at this restaurant. The beans were amazing, the chicken well cooked and the rice very tasty. We enjoyed it so much, we went twice. It is not expensive and delicious.

For us it was a little hard to find but once we did it was well worth the hunt. The food was exceptional as was the service.

My wife and I were tipped off to this place by the proprietors of Hotel Mango Valley where we were staying. We ate twice at the restaurant and twice had food delivered. This is where the locals eat and is authentic Tico food. The meatball and fish soups are great, and the fish and rice dishes excellent. We had a variety of dishes and they were all good.

We enjoyed this typical Tico restaurant. It appears to be a favorite of the locals and the food was very good. I had a guacamole salad, done right, with freshly toasted corn tortilla chips, and my husband had a delicious Arroz Cantones, which I plan to have next time. The Té Frio de la Casa is great! It's more like lemonade icy, flavored with tea. Since we live close by in Atenas, we will be back frequently to try more items on the menu.
