I would say if you want to sample typical Costa Rican food this would be a good choice.Big variety at reasonable prices and all our choices tasted good. Service was friendly. Also nice location to just sit and enjoy a cup of coffee.Highly recommend.

This was our first meal in Costa Rica. The food was ok but the desserts were delicious! Our favorites were the bread pudding and the mocha cake. Would go again but just for dessert and coffee. :)
