“Best soda in La Fortuna/Arenal!”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Turned up for an evening meal having been recommended this place by our hotel and were not disappointed.

For about $10-11 each we got garlic bread, soup (I had sopa negra, unusual but very tasty), steak/tenderloin and a couple of beers.

Food tasted authentic and home cooked, the ladies cooking and serving were lovely, and it was great value. Reall really enjoyed our evening here, would 100% recommend and definitely go back.

“Great food and service!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

Wife and I had cosada with chicken/pork. Expected the standard choice of meat + rice/beans. Got that plus an additional 5-6 sides that were all unique (to us Americans) and fabulous. Oh, and each dinner was something like $6 tops. Add in a mango shake for just over $1 and we were both stuffed for $15. Also the server, Mario was very friendly ( introducing himself with a handshake and smile and asking our names- and then using them). So glad we stopped here!

“Excellent.”

I have visited many restaurants in CR and I can tell you this is one of the best typical food restaurant. Affordable. You do not have to pay $$$ for good food.

“service is amazing”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

I agree with the other posters about this being a great place with really good food at great prices. I just want to say a word about the service--it was really outstanding. Despite the throng of diners, the two staff who served us took the time to make sure we understood what we were ordering. Very pleasant and helpful.
