“Great food great value!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We had just drove many hours from San Jose and our hotel recommended us to go there. It was perfect for us, great authentic food, great value, cooked fresh. We told them how hungry we were and they brought us chips and a wonderful homemade salsa immediately ! Empanadas were fresh and delicious and the burrito was so delicious and huge for a heavy appetite! Very reasonably priced!

On our way back to San Jose we stopped by for a quick cup of coffee and some food to go.
We were not disappointed. Our food was well prepared and conveniently wrapped for the road. Owner was very friendly and helpful. No wonder trip advisor has awarded them excellence!!! Pura vida

“Great food, even better service!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you're looking for a good place to eat, this is a must. We ate here twice on our trip... We made it a point to stop on our way out of town for lunch today. The food is yummy, with even better service. Johnny and his family were so nice to talk with and everything was cooked fresh! The salads are good, empanadas were delicious as were the taquitos/burritos. Enjoy!

Both times have been excellent. The service and food is top notch! You can get fast food & authentic food. Can't go wrong, make this place a 'must stop' if you are in the area.

“Wonderful place with even more wonderful staff”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

The salads were delicious as were the empanadas. Johnny our server was very helpful with the menu as well as other attractions and restaurants to visit. We were here for lunch and will probably be back before leaving from the Arenal area. The dog/mini pony is also a pet lovers dream come true. Very well behaved and friendly.
