Good food, a bit pricey for location. Not much of view. Service was adequate but will not go out of their way to please customer. Restaurant was relatively empty and tv had a soccer match but when we asked to change channels to view the Olympics they did not bother.

This is one of those iconic places that everyone has gone to for years. Most ticos stop here on the way to or from Guanacaste. It's open 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. so you'll almost surely find it open. It's simple local food with fresh seafood at very convenient prices. The atmosphere is nothing fancy, but it's clean and the service is efficient. The portions are also very generous. I ordered the rice & shrimp and it was delicious, just like it's traditionally made in Costa Rica.

I had been told about this restaurant by an american I met in Playa Hermosa and stumbled onto it on my way from Puntarenas.Located at the top of a hill on the well-traveled main road Caballo Blanco is a welcoming place. Frequented by Ticos and crowded we were treated to a wonderful grilled whole fish beautifully prepared. Probably snapper im not certain. My wife had a wonderful hearts of palm salad and kept begging for tastes of my fish which I graciously served up, the portion being truly large enough to share! It's a big place w/ a great atmosphere and attentive service. Look for the big white horse (Caballo Blanco!) fronting this great place!

The Caballo Blanco restaurant is on the road from San José to Liberia, just a few minutes before the turn off for the Monteverde/Santa Elena Cloud forests. The place is huge and is quite busy at lunch time. The menu is varied (a great choice of salads, ceviches, meats and especially, fish and seafood) and the prices quite reasonable,in light of the quality. Local and imported beers come served in icy mugs...The service is friendly and quite rapid for such a large restaurant. This is definitely a great place to stop for lunch on the road!

The food is ok, the service is pretty good and it is big and clean and has lots of nice wooden sculptures. It has a playground, and prices are ok. It's just a place to go by on the way to the beach... but I would not recommend it. If you want to get a good one, try a little cantina on the road. Get some adventure
