“Nice restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

The restaurant is located in an old house, meaning it has an internal patio, which is good for the Liberian hot afternoons. They have a nice menu with great steaks! The menu is no different from most restaurants in town, but it is still good. The prices are a little bit high for a budget dinner, but it is definitely a nice option to go on a night out with the significant other.
The only problem I saw was the location of the restrooms. When it rains (and believe me, it pours cats and dogs during the rainy season in Costa Rica) people can easily get wet because the restrooms are located on a side of the restaurant, and there is a little roof that doesn't cover you during windy storms. They also didn't have a light out of the restroom, so you can't look at yourself while washing your hands (not a problem during daytime, but weird at nighttime).

We enjoyed an incredible meal, amazing service and beautiful surroundings for our last meal in Costa Rica. If we return to Costa Rica, we will definately return to this restaurant.

“Hang out in the garden and watch music videos with a cold beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Our favourite is the mixed barbecue platter for the whole family. Nice garden and friendly staff. Old songs on the giant screen and a Guanacaste tree as table.

“Great meal, friendly staff, Table tops made from Guanacaste Trees”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Felt very welcome, speaking just "Pocito" (just a little bit) of spanish, It seems in Costa rica many can speak Pocito inglais, so it is fun to communicate. Costa Ricans are very friendly people. The restaurant was beautiful inside the courtyard, Many of the table tops were made of huge tree trunks.. of the local tree of the region.... Amazing to see, . I had the house pork ribs, and they were very nicely cooked, and my wife had Garlic shrimp. very tasty. The pork was accompanied with a native french fry, (not from potatoes), and also like a fried plantain. The shrimp was accompanied with a medley of fresh vegetables. All in all the prices were very reasonable for the food they served. Well Done!
