We had lunch/dinner at Chery's 4 times during our vacation because it was within walking distance of our hotel. The owner and staff are fantastic and the food was delicious. We just tried different items from the menu each day and we received fantastic food each meal! The plantains are amazing-be sure to try them.

My favorite restaurant for bocas.... The chifrijo is delicious, you will have to ask for the super chifrijo, the menu has lots of different choices for you, and I believe you will love it.

Definitely try the fried plantains. The bean dip is what makes the dish. We had such a nice lunch that we came back on our return through Alajuela.

Like others, was pointed to Chery's as a guest at La Rosa de America hotel. Just a few steps from the hotel, the service was attentive and friendly and the food delicious. You can tell it's a local hangout, but the staff went far to make a guest feel welcome. The portions are generous, and the value superb. Excellent dinner.

I was surprised when I didn't find this place on TA on a trip a couple of years ago. Now I know why - it is listed under a different city than what I thought it would be listed under. Maybe somebody locally can confirm whether this is in El Roble, or Alajuela. It is a shame for people traveling... More

We stayed at the Hotel la Rosa and found this back street bar and restaurant 500 mts down the street. It is definitely a popular local establishment and for good reasons. A great chifrijo (rice and beans with chicharrones, which are fried pork skins, and chimichurri) and tacos with bifteks. The two entrees with three beers for $24 cannot beat.... More

We ate here whilst staying at the Rosa De America hotel and it is a cool quirky little place with good local food, we had a selection of Bocas. Beer was cold and also served Chilean wines which I suspect were on hand more for the tourists.

We ate here while staying at Hotel La Rosa De America. It was delicious. Hands down the best food we had on our trip - and we made a point to eat only local food. I grew up eating Costa Rican food, and Chery's had all my childhood meals beat. The Arroz con Pollo was delicious.
