“Good Costa Rican Food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Service is friendly, I like the open set-up. As usual expect to pay US$12-20/person. Very conveniently located.

“Excellent meals!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

We really enjoyed La Choza. The staff at Hotel El Sliencio del Campo recommended it and it was perfect place for our family. We went twice and both times ordered the whole chicken with a side of rice and it was perfect (especially since we'd had a light lunch). The meal also came with tortillas, beans and guac. Very good!

“mama mia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We were looking for a real authentic costa rican restaurant, and we found it. All I remember is everything on the menu looked good. There were all locals eating there (the best sign of a good place to eat!). We loved it!

“Traditional dress, but food nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

It is set in a big barn, with waitresses in traditional dress. you eat on benches around wooden tables. It felt like it was set up to cater for bus parties wanting a "traditional" feel, but felt very empty with just us and one other party there. Despite the lack of customers, or perhaps because, the service was not very attentive. The food was OK (average isn't bad), but we had better elsewhere.
