We ate here and two occasions as I had the garlic sea base both times. Some of the best fish I've ever had at a great price relative to the more upscale Monteverde area restaurants.

Me and my wife were both sick for two days. I had a tippical ticco dish.

Dear,

I had the rice with chicken, and my wife had the fish salad. We think the dish ingridients past there expiration date. Because both of us were sick for to days, through the food.

Next to the poor kwalitie of food and service, the prices are 23 % higher then on the dinercard onounced. On the bill we saw that we had to pay á 10 % tip and 13 % tax extra.

Conclusion: don't eat at this place, and spread the word. You might save somebody's live.

Greet,

Martin!

The locals recommended this for lunch and the seafood was delicious. We were the only people in the restaurant and people did not know what they were missing. Excellent fish. We sat in the back in the little alcove looking out into the greenery in the back. The front is on a busy corner for traffic and not the best of atmosphere out there but the rest of the place is very charming.
