“Coolest lounge in CR!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Although the food and drinks were great, I especially loved the atmosphere, decor and vibe this cool little lounge had to offer. The menu is extensive offering lots of choices from local to international foods. The live music and artists selling their work was a nice little touch as well.

“Great drinks---friendly staff”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

Fun place----lively, not too loud. Off the beaten path but your cab driver will know where it is. Good place for local cuisine or if you're just in the mood for a burger or wings

“Good food and location”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

The food here was very good and they had a lot of variety between Costa Rican and American food. The drinks were very inexpensive in comparison to other local places. It is a nice place to sit and enjoy the atmosphere as there are street vendors right outside and you can see the volcano. It is a fun atmosphere and a good mix of locals and tourists.
