La Parada is not fine dining. It offers basic Costa Rican food for a decent price. I probably gets its brisk business simply from it's visibility in town. It's a huge restaurant located right across from the pretty town square in La Fortuna. I saw a lot of people order pasta, though I don't know that I would go that in a restaurant like this. I stuck to a casado plate with rice and beans, steak, and some sort of tasty tuna pasta salad. My Mom ordered the pork chop casado plate, which wasn't as good as the bistec I had.

Typical Costa Rican restaurant in the center of La Fortuna. There is a mix of locals and tourists. The service is pretty good, and they offer typical Costa Rican dishes at reasonable prices.

We visited this restaurant per a recommendation by a local who said that you get a lot of food for a good price. We had the chicken fajitas and arroz con pollo. Both were excellent! And both plates were certainly huge! It's important to note that you pay the bill at the cashier. The establishment was very family friendly. We had heard that they used to be open 24hrs but, at least during low season, we heard this is no longer true. Check it out for a good large meal in town!

Last time I was in the restraunt was approximately 4 years ago when it was more of a local soda. Now with so many tourists going the quality of food has lowered and the prices for what you receive is not worth going. First time I went to this restaurant it had great casados, now it's better to eat somewhere else!
