“Great food and awesome owners!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

Delicatessen La Fortuna is awesome! The food is always fresh and delicious, great selection of Costa Rican & Argentinian dishes and they even have a legit American style burger, over sized and juicy - if you get a craving while in the land of pura vida ;) On top of the great food, the owners, a local family, are incredibly friendly and helpful!! Not only do they provide great service and hot food while you are in their restaurant but, they also speak excellent English and are happy to provide suggestions on anything else you might need while in La Fortuna. When you go, be sure to get an order of french fries - fresh cut, delicious awesomeness (seriously, I still have dreams about those fries!!)

“Great food, great people!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2012

My husband and I were staying in Arenal but visited Delicatessen several times during our vacation. The food is freshly prepared and excellent. Johnny, his wife and beautiful little daughter became fast friends of ours. Johnny makes the best tasting cheesecake! I highly recommend this family restaurant!
