All six of our group LOVED everything they ordered here. Great local food! Little pricey, but it was our best lunch experience for the entire week in Costa Rica.

We were there around 5:30 pm, hardly anybody there, but more people came in afterwards. Noticed the clientele was a mix of tourists and locals. We ordered mostly fish, and chicken- which were good. Attentive service.

This was a good restaurant, with yummy food. But if you are on a budget like we are, it's not the place to be eating at everyday. Great service! Typical Costa Rican food and American food here

Nice open-air restaurant. Food was good, wife had a hamburger and I had fahitas. It was not cheap. Drinks even more expensive. Still one of the better places in La Fortuna.

The food was very good no doubt but the pricing was outrageous for what it was. The place was clean and service was friendly but do count your dollar.

We were on a quest for the best nachos and we found them! This place definitely caters to tourists but the prices weren't too bad.
