We ate here on three different occasions while on a week's stay in Costa Rica. The food was outstanding every time. But the service and the laughs that we had were just as good. Berta, Shindy and everyone were great.

Very typical Costa Rican restaurant. I have had both breakfast and lunch and enjoyed both very much, and such a great value for the large amount of food you get, so if on a budget, this is the place in Nuevo Arenal.

We were recommended this soda by our hotel in Nuevo Arenal and we're not disappointed. A warm welcome and a cold drink was followed by some fantastic food. The marlin with mango and avocado was so good! In fact, it was so good that, unusually for us, we went back again a couple of nights later. Different dishes but just... More

This is a great local soda in Nuevo Arenal. We have eaten multiple times over the years and it has always been good. It is worth your time to stroll through the garden out back. My main reason for writing this review is they now have fresh baked cinnamon rolls and a two-cheese bread available. They were wonderful! They are... More

Seldom empty, great home cooked meals. Really isn't Tico food at all. Pork Chop and mashed potatoes, chips and guacamole, BLT, cold beer. All done up very well. Portions are large and hot food is hot and the cold stuff cold. The owner will be glad to show you the huge garden out back where most (maybe all) of her... More

This restaurant is popular with both Costa Ricans and "Gringos". The reason is obvious--very good food and very reasonable prices. It is very conveniently located, near the four corners of Nuevo Arenal. Definitely worth a visit.

This restaurant is on the main road in Nuevo Arenal. We went early to dinner and were the only customers. We had the fish casado and it was very good.
