This place was recommended to us by one our our kayak guides and it did not disappoint. We were just walking around all the tourist shops and then found our way to Viquez. We were a little confused about the menu, there were descriptions of just the meat so we ordered on a whim. For $7 you can get chicken, rice, two sweeter sides and a little dessert. The food was filing, large portions, and probably the tastiest meal we had in the Arenal area. Nothing fancy, just good, local food.

we went there after being referred by our hotel , it is a good place to eat local food. Great rates for huge helpings of food .

Sometimes , they take time to respond and disappear leaving you a little bewildered.

Only make sure you know how to communicate . Very few folks understand English and we managed with our very limited Spanish .....

I visited this restaurant based on tripadvisor reviews. The food and service was good but did not standout from other good restaurants in the area. The prices are similar to other restaurants also.

This simple restaurant offers amazing Tico food at excellent prices, in downtown La Fortuna. Try the Tico buffet but request a small plate! We didn't know that there was a small plate until our stomachs were bulging. The food is authentic, fresh and the staff is lovely.

Stuff is nice and few of them speak english. Food is very tasty and cheap, comparing with other restaurants on main street where they have prices for US tourists :)
