“excellent breakfast and lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Our hotel owner Juan Carlos told us to go here and he was right that we felt comfortable and really enjoyed the food. Our first meal in CR and we went typico. Very reasonably priced and good service. Went back for breakfast and really enjoyed that also. Highly recommend for the traveler to get a taste of small town Osa food.

“Decent food (especially breakfast) and friendly staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We had breakfast and lunch here a few times. Breakfast items are actually available (cheerfully) all day. There's a yogurt/granola option that is huge and filling, and the eggs + bacon offerings were delicious. I had a mixed seafood ceviche one day that was quite good and very fresh. Prices were reasonable, and you're smack in the center of town. You'll meet or see everyone from your table here. Well worth a stop and recommended as a good general restaurant.

“Best Patacones in town”

very good drinks, and best patacones in town. Haven't tried the rest of the food but the prices seem decent. Also free wifi.

Dinner menu offers a good selection to choose from. My husband ordered a fish dinner with ginger sauce and I had chicken cordon blue.

“Bland food but good for checking email over a beer”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

If you want an authentic meal, eat at one of the many local sodas. The cooking is mediocre (e.g. cream sauce or mayo on everything), however the staff were friendly and place was cool and clean. They accept USD but its worth doing the conversion in your head beforehand.
