We wanted a authentic Costa Rican restaurant with great food and we got it! Lots of locals, which is always a good sign to us. Relatively cheap price for what you get and excellent food.

Probably won't be the best Costa Rica food in la Fortuna. But has good services, clean and cheap. You can find breakfast, coffee, sandwich, fruits, lunch. The place has its own parking lot.
