We love eating at down home, friendly restaurants which provide a peek into the culture of the country we are visiting. La Tipica did not disappoint. I felt as if we were served the very food that would have been put on the table in the owners home. Very tasty, wood fired grill. Cosada was great, service was very friendly, courteous, and the price can't be beat. I would recommend stopping here for a meal, it's on the main road into town.

Stoped at this place for dinner during my stay at La Fortuna. What had my attention was that it it was wood fire cooked, so we decided to stop and check it out. The place was very humble and the service was excellent. You can feel the kindness and the warm heart of the Costarican culture at this place. I ordered a churrasco with patacones. The churrasco had that unique smoked wood flavor that was mouth watering and cooked right. The patacones are pretty standard everywhere but these two together was like a match made in heaven. I recommend to try this if you are a steak lover. After our meal we stayed like an hour extra just chatting with our waiter. We felt at home. I recommend stoping by.

This was the first restaurant we ate at our first night in La Fortuna. We all ordered casado and were not disappointed in the taste.

I've been here a few times during my two trips to Costa Rica, mostly because it's cheap, tasty, fast, and in the middle of town. I even saw some of my tour guides stop by to grab something before work. The fresh fruit shakes are really tasty, and the owners/workers are friendly and accommodating, even if you don't speak much Spanish.

This was our favorite tipica from our trip to Costa Rica. The salad, fried plantains with guacamole, and casados were delicious as were the fruit & milk batidos enjoyed by all. The cheeseburger has seasonings mixed in that some liked and others, well, not so much. The food did take a little longer than ideal, but there was a large party right ahead of us which clearly slowed down the kitchen (of one person!). We would definitely recommend this tipica!
