“Good ceviche and traditional food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

The ceviche was delicious and fresh. They have available fresh juice and draft beer. The traditional food was great and it was a lot! The service was very good and facilities were clean.

“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

The food was ordinary. The Chicken Stragonoff was drowning in a mushroom sauce and was not tender at all. The fish dinner was just OK. It cost $43, for a salad, soup two entrees, and one mixed drink, not unreasonable,

“hidden little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

nice restaurant. hidden within the town and great food. the service was great but then again we were one of 5 tables there. the flaming chicken plate was so good... the prices were okay. it seems like La Fortuna goes after the tourist that come to the town as most restaurants are a lot.

“The best steak ever ... but expensive!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

We went to Nene's after reading the reviews here, and we went back again since we enjoyed our meal so much. We weren't sure about what we would get at the sodas, so we spent more than we should have going to the better restaurants in Fortuna. This was my favorite.
