My gf and I visited a day or two after New Years. We are no strangers to vegetarian, vegan or raw food and she wanted to find this place as it was the only "listed" restaurant of the type we could find in La Fortuna. We were staying very close in a good hotel, so we decided to wander down the streets to find it. It was dark and there was very poor lighting and very poor roads, looking like a sketchy area. The yard was dark but the gate was wide open and there was a sign that said "open" by it with another sign just in front of the building with the same. There were 2 or 3 small groups of people and a couple animals running around. It looked like some were just having drinks and a couple had just eaten. We walked in and I smiled at a couple that smiled back while others stared at us oddly. We WERE foreigners after all. No one offered any advice or looked like they were working so we wandered up to the counter and grabbed a menu. The place looked dirty, with small pets running around and cheap plastic furniture. It looks like a converted patio for friends that aren't concerned with hygiene than a business. A male appeared behind the counter and in a loud voice said "We are closed!". That's it. No buenos noches or explanation. He didn't smile or say anything else. We pointed out the open signs on our way out. We did not try the food (which is why I am giving them a poor instead of terrible rating - benefit of the doubt) but we would not go back due to the first impression. They were rude, clearly open or not advertising correctly and it really did not look like somewhere we wanted to eat anyways. The bad reviews that are on here are true and we wonder how they run a business, let alone get good reviews with service like that. You can find decent salads, soups, rice and other friendly dishes all over town.
