Description: The highest quality ice cream, sorbet and vegan ice cream is all homemade and organic where possible.

Fresh whipped cream and unique flavors from our backyard and around the world are offered every day.

We hope to see you again soon :) <3 Alice

This is a great spot in Playa Chiquita, just past the town of Puerto Viejo. It is not a vegetarian restaurant but there are plenty of veggie options. We especially recommend the chips & salsa, the veggie casados, and the sweet plantains. The portions are generous... Big enough to share. The homemade ice cream (made by Alice) is creamy and delicious. Great friendly service! Don't miss this if you are in the area!

Was there for honeymoon and we were looking for something to eat. This place was close to our hotel. It was October 31 (Halloween) and there were a lot of kids there for a birthday party and the owner was nice an let us stay there for dinner. The owners are from Brooklyn so thy are very nice :). The food was amazing. The portions are good. Wife had chicken taco and I had chicken. The wife and the cook make up different sauces and they are very tasty. Recommendation: definitely recommended. Enjoy

Great value, simple meal, pleasant service. Try the home-made ice cream. Costa-Ricans didn't seem to be big on dessert so the homemade ice cream was a pleasant surprise. Well needed in that hot climate!

Perhaps expectations were too high after reading all of the great reviews of the fish taco, but although large, we found it average at best. It looks more like a quesadilla and tasted like chicken with not much flavor and only tomatoes in addition to the chicken. The sweet plantains were good though.

The restaurant was very nice. We met the owner who was very nice. We ordered the cheese quesadilla, it came with three homemade sauces. The owner says his wife and chef has competitions on making the sauces. The food was very good, but all the restaurants seem to be charging way to much for their meals.
