We liked everything about this restaurant! We went on recommendation from our hotel staff for a good, local place with traditional Costa Rican food... La Choza de Laurel delivered out BEST meal of our entire trip! We both ordered the traditional combination plate, I with fish, my hubby with chicken... we were both thoroughly impressed with the presentation and the flavor! LOVE this place and disappointed we did not get to go back one more time before we left the La Fortuna area! Reasonable prices and great service make this a restaurant not to miss out on! YUM! Also, just FYI, American dollars accepted with no problem... gave a good exchange. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!!!

We visited the restaurant on Sep 16, just one day after National Independence day and were happily surprised with the quality of the food (high quality ingredients and well presented), at reasonable prices. The service was very good, relatively fast, with waiters and waitresses very kind and always smiling! Good parking place and free internet available and working.

We checked out this place for dinner while visiting the downtown area of La Fortuna. Their menu is more extensive than you will find at some of the local places. We had the arroz con pollo and the casado with fish. Both were solid, but not wonderful. Also, the prices were about double what you might pay at a soda.

On the plus side, they do serve alcohol. The pina colada is delicious and also a work of art!

This place ranked middle of the road for us - better than any of the "traditional" food served at the hotels, but not the best we sampled while in costa rica.

Being from Texas ( where authentic Latin cuisine is typical), I can say the food was good. It was not great, but there are not a ton of options in La Fortuna. We had a tuna salad, and a traditional casado with pork. The staff was friendly, and had no problem calling our driver back for us. We ordered Cuba libres, and thought it was neat that they bring the shot separate with a bottle of Pepsi ( no coke available).
