We had an amazing lunch in this beautiful historic cafe. I had the fajitas that came sizzling on a cast iron dish. Our server brought out the fresh herbs that were used in the dish when I asked for a description of how they made this item. There are lots of interesting menu items to choose from that use local, fresh ingredients.

Sebastian, the owner of Cafe Liberia has put together the winning combination of superb hospitality and new ways to enjoy the fresh bounty of vegetables, fruit, fish and meats that typify Costa Rica's bounty. Being a former chef himself, his recipes are inspired. Freshly squeezed lemonade, for example, was icy cold and the simple syrup seasoned with a hint of fresh ginger made the drink extra refreshing. The ceviche which yesterday featured thin slices of corvina (sea bass) was carefully prepared with small cubes of mango, paper-thin slices of red onion, and more fresh lemon/lime juice. It was so refreshing on a summer evening and an excellent first-course. While the food is exceptional, the setting in a restored historic building located in the historic district of this small city (on Calle Real) is worth the visit. Guests are encouraged to sip a coffee or lemonade in the open-air and beautifully landscaped courtyard and to spend time with the genial owner and staff. When in Liberia, this is a must-see spot. Prices are reasonable and children are welcome.

I can confirm what TripAdvisor already states, this is defiantly one of the best places to eat in Liberia.
I have often visited this French cafe to have a fruit juice or smoothie whilst using their Internet but I've also been once to the restaurant.
I went as part of a large group and had a Kobe Burger (rare) plus a fruit smoothie. It was delicious. At last some decent food in Costa Rica!

The only problems I see is that there is no AC and when is hot, is very hot. The food is great, the service very good, open windows sitting. Small place, but nice.

There are only two great spots to eat near the airport. 1. Soda Lula if you are craving great local food. 2. Cafe Liberia if you are tired of rice and beans. Possible the only great latte in Costa Rica.

I will continue to go back every time I return to Costa Rica,
