To find a Swiss restaurant in the interior of Costa Rica with a train ride to boot interesting to the point of being irresistible. Good service had to have a fondue.. Yodeling music piped in... Nice and different. Friendly staff. Beautiful setting

Went for schnitzel which was okay but no purple cabbage or pan fried potatoes. Didn't like the calves outside in the pens, looked like their pets. Disappointed. No view as it was pouring with rain. The train looked interesting but too late to go. Don't go for german food if that's what you want. Try neuveau arenal.

Toy train ride over old bridges past a wonderful chapel and cows in pasture, to the secret 'rotating' hotel (check out the invisible air blower here) on the hill with a small museum and the best panoramic view of the lake and Arenal volcano while having rich strawberry ice cream made the day special like a dream. The stay was... More

Rosti; hash browns cooked with onions and topped with fried eggs is one of my favorite breakfasts! Whether I enjoy it in my home or the Alps, I didn't expect this in the Lake Arenal Region. At home, I like it with a little ketchup & Tabasco, but I'd never insult the chef when he/she is doing the cooking! I... More

Get the fondue (for two people minimum). Their breakfast is yummy too, and their staff is really friendly as well.

We wanted to experience the little train ride to the revolving restaurant which overlooks beautiful Lake Arenal. The narrow guage train chug chuged up the hills in little wooden observation cars, and it was cute... More

We loved the fresh baked bread with jam and home produced butter! The cocoa was simply over the top good. Lovely fresh mountain air, not too hot nor cool. Saw two toucans after breakfast flying from one tree to the next. This truly was the best breakfast on our trip and came graitis with the room. The train ride is... More

I have been visiting in the Arenal area for several years now, a couple of times a year and this place has always been a mystery to me. Each time I would go by it would either looks closed or we had some pressing activity for the day. Today I was down with little to do and so decided I... More
