“Quite unbelievable!”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

This restaurant's name and location do not give any idea of its quality. My friend and I are from the San Francisco Bay Area and are pretty used to good food. What Beatrix Salazar, the chef and co-owner, serves is equal to if not better than anything we have in the Bay Area. The soup, the crepe and the salad are made from only the freshest of produce - it was as if the ingredients had just been picked within the past hour. I could not recommend any restaurant in Costa Rica more highly. The host/co-owner is a charmer, too, just like his wife.

“The Best Tomato Soup Ever”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

This casual, very unpretentious cafe serves some of the freshest and freshest tasting salads and soups I've ever eaten. The tomato soup blew us away. Nothing like the tomato-saucy preparations you expect. It has the soul and chunks of fresh tomato, with lots of basil also, But it is definitely a soup, not just a warm, ground up salad. The dessert pastries and cakes were also outstanding. It's definitely a place to come back to while you're in Monteverde.
