“Yummy! and good price”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

The food was really good. And if you go to the frog pond first you can get a coupon (you can walk to sabor tico from the frog pond). Its in a new building but very authentic Costa Rican food. Try the Arrozo con leche (rice pudding) for desert, its so good! And I think they had the best chicken and rice

“Good eats on the cheap”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

Great selection of typical Costa Rican grub for a great price. Wish I had asked them to leave off the ketchup and mayo on my dish but figured I would try it as the locals eat. Not my favorite flavor haha. But everything was well prepared and presented nicely.

This place was great! We ate here twice in our three days in Santa Elena. The price was great, and the food was excellent!. Definitely make sure you order that arroz con leche!

“Excellent food and reasonable prices”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We've eaten at both locations of Sabor Tico in Monteverde (the one across from the soccer field and the one in the Mega Super plaza). Both offer great typical food at good prices, but the Mega Super location is nicer inside. Staff is friendly and some speak English.
