“Inexpensive and Good!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

This is my favorite typical Tico food place in Costa Rica. Is the place where I go eat after I land in CR. I love the "Patrulla or Chifrijo", the Fried Cheese Dices, Ollita de Carne (beef soup), Tostones con frijoles y queso (fried plantains with cheese). Pretty much anything you order is good and is fresh. The place is not pretty, is an old pueblo house with a tarp roof in the back yard, but the typical Tico dishes are great and so inexpensive. If you go you will love it and be back, just like me!

“Very Cool to see how it was back in the day!”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

Very cute, rustic, original style Tico restaurant.. Great selection of Costa Rican favorites. Most cooked over a wood fire I believe. Very authentic, the real deal if you want to have a true Costa Rican dinner or drinks. Very casual, not a bar but a small place. Did I mention cheap! Worth the taxi drive up to Escazu to see it..
