We enjoyed our dinner here. Huge cuts of steak, and great service. Pretty resonably priced items on the menu for the amout of food they serve.

It does not look like much from the road, but you cannot beat the value. We had a nice quiet meal, quick service, and was pretty delicious. $2 Imperials and $12 steaks, we were extremely impressed and recommend it for anyone traveling through the area that wants a good, quick meal.

Stopped in on our way back from the Volcano Park and were pleasantly surprised. Huge portions of great beef and very reasonable prices, with a beautiful view and wonderful surrounding.

I was so happy to take my customers traveling with me to this Restaurant, However it seems that they forgot about service and do not treat guides and drivers too good,
I;m not stoping there any more

It doesn't look like much, but I've eaten here a few times now. Excellent quality of meat, that you really can't find in costa rica. Huge portions, very reasonable prices.
