Not exaggerating. And not only was this the best food, but it was the CHEAPEST. The boys we were with ate there twice in one day it was that good. I got the baja fish tacos. The cherry limeade was delicious too. Don't let the appearance fool you- it's just a little food hut attached to a hostel, but I'm telling you, I spent $30 on some meals in this country that weren't as good as this place. TACO TACO!

Sorry to be disappointed by this place, but after waiting 20+ minutes to get the order wrong and then get the food cold, we felt cheated. $20 for 2 tacos with rice and beans, a quesadilla with guacamole, and 2 cokes is high back in the US even. The rice, beans, and guac were $1 each and came in 1 oz cups. Two spoonfuls. The slow roasted beef was tough, no way it was slow roasted, it came off the griddle. Skip Taco Taco!

I was feeling burned from having had several bad meals in a row and I was getting pretty hungry and cranky. I told my husband to pick where we were eating, then I asked him to order for me. I was that cross. I was so happily surprised! It was really good and it completely changed my mood and outlook. We went back the next day. This was definitely the best food we had in Santa Elena/Monteverde.

If you go to Costa Rice, you must make a stop here. It's that good. A much needed break from the wonderful casado is found here in this gem. I would also stay at the Hostel next door since they give you free breakfast tacos from this joint. I can't say enough good things. Hopefully this pot convinces you that it is a great choice in the area/country:)
