After a quick dip in our hotel's (Monteverde Lodge) very large hot tub, we took a peaceful hike on the lodge grounds and into the adjoining private nature preserve. We stopped for dinner at Restaurante De Lucia-- one of the best meals of our 8 day trip. It was warm, welcoming and reasonably priced ($60/4 people with drinks and dessert). They had the best guacamole and homemade tortillas of our trip. After dinner we took a night hike back to Monteverde Lodge and saw lots of amazing insects and a baby tarantula. A great family adventure.

We arrived at our lodging for the next few nights and although our hotel has a restaurant we walked across the road to check out this restaurant s menu. The exterior sign boasts that they have the best burger in town My husband had to try it out and was very pleased! I had to have a traditional meal and the meal was amazing! We both had a great meal and a cocktail for $30.00. The restaurant itself tastefully decorated with local art and masks as well as fresh flowers at each table. The server was very polite and professional. I am certain we will go back beoffe we leave .

Went for dinner a couple of times. Nice, warm, relaxed ambience; attentive, friendly, professional service. Great appetizer that comes with all meals—fresh made tortilla chips with guacamole, bean dip and a mild salsa. The sea bass ceviche was very good and came with a fresh green salad and avocados. Wine by the glass. Limited, mostly Italian menu though there should be something for everyone. Very convenient to Cala Lodge where we were staying.

We stayed at the Monteverde Country Lodge which is a very short walk across the road. Although very quiet when we were there in November we enjoyed the meals on both occasions that we eat there. I had steak on both occasions (it was very nice!!). The value for money was excellent and I would recommend this restaurant to you.
