“yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

We had a very nice meal here. I had a Costa Rican rice dish with chicken and my husband enjoyed a steamed snapper. Overall, very good food.

“Great Food & Service with Reasonable Prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We are frequent visitors to Tabacon Hot Springs and starting bringing friends to La Perla. We have been very pleased with the quality and quantity of food we are served. We are especially fond of their generous portions of escargots that we ordered for an appetizer.

The service is also very good. However, be careful because many waiters may tell tourist in Costa Rica that the tip is not included in your check. The fact is that there is a 10% charge "servico" added to your check with is the customary tip in Costa Rica. Of course its o.k. to tip a little extra for exceptional service but be careful not to double tip. This goes across the board in all of Costa Rica.

The atmosphere is typical open air and very spacious. Overall a very favorable experience.

“Great food in La Fortuna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

The variety was great -- you can get traditional Costa Rican, plus lots of great steaks and seafood. All the dishes were artistically presented and tasted as good as they looked.

“Yummy food in town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

We went here two nights in a row we liked it so much. Everything we had there off the vegetarian menu was really good and I loved that they had options beyond the 'veg casado'. And it was really reasonably priced compared to a lot of places. Definitely check it out. Yummy!

“Delicious food and beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

We really enjoyed our dinner here. We got the ceviche which was probably the best we had in Costa Rica, and the chicken fajitas which were also very delicious. The restaurant itself is also very beautiful and open, and the server was very friendly.
