I loved this restaurant! The food, service, and atmosphere was wonderful! It serves authentic Costa Rican food and the ambiance is very local. The portion sizes are big and can easily be shared. Their ceviche was one of the best I have ever had. Definitely make a point to stop there for lunch or dinner.

Surely located off of the beaten path, but was so worth it. Walked into here at dark one night and although we make amazing ceviche of our own at home we had to give it a try and the freshness of the ingredients alone made it worth it. Server was bi-lingual and kind/helpful. Great authentic Costa Rican dining experience.

By boyfriend and I recently purchased a property near town. As a celebration we went to Nene's to have the best ceviche in the world. The portion size is great and your receive plenty of tortilla chips to dip into the wonderful dish. The flavors are excellent. Iff you sit on the patio you have a clear shot of Arenal Volcano for great pictures. I would highly recommend a visit after a morning excursion for a light lunch and good beer :)

If you want some local flavor while you’re in La Fortuna, look no further than Nene’s. Tucked into an alley, Nene’s is famous for their ceviche (a hefty portion and one of the best ceviche’s that we had in the country). When we ate there, we’d just missed the lunch rush, and so had a chance to get to know our waiter, who showed us a cas tree, an avocado tree, and a leche tree growing right outside the restaurant. There are many local favorites on the menu, including Arroz con Pollo (Rice with chicken), jugo de cas (Cas juice) to name a couple. This place is a tasty gem!

Off the beaten path and nice. Wait staff super friendly and food was good, but chef's special was $44 per person. Waiter did not bother to tell us that. And frankly, I would not have ever thought there would be such an expensive meal in La Fortuna. Will not repeat.
