I had a delicious lunch here on my second day in La Fortuna. I ordered a Fish Dish that was served with mixed vegetables plus french fries. Serving size was big so I took the leftover back at the hotel. I don’t know the name...of the fish that was served, had very strong fish taste and smell. The carrots, broccoli, zucchini and cauliflower were crunchy and not overcooked. Both fish and vegetables were delicious and seasoned well. Cost of this dish was about 7600 colones or about $13:00 was told that tips could not added to the credit card bill, had to be in cash.More

La Fonda 506 was recommended to us by one of our tour drivers. The staff was courteous and helpful. They suggested two delicious entrees that we ordered and absolutely enjoyed. The food was well prepared, beautifully presented, and seasoned perfectly. My husband ordered the pork...ribs and I ordered the rice with shrimp. We were served a hearty portion in a timely manner. The price was very reasonable. I would definitely recommend trying La Fonda 506 on your next trip to La Fortuna. Delicioso!More

We had an outstanding ceviche that was unique and delicious. Sadly, our entrees weren’t so good. My daughter ordered the Surf and Turf and requested her steak medium well. It was medium rare, if not rare. I ate it and it was okay. I ordered...the seared tuna which we both found not worth eating. It didn’t resemble any seared tuna I’ve ever had. It was dark and dry. Very disappointing. The service was friendly and the atmosphere was nice but I’m not sure I’d visit again.More

Very delicious, clean, and friendly environment. Our server Andrey was very helpful in making recommendations (you must try the fajitas tejanas!), we also had the grilled octopus and although a rather small portion (140grams) it was delicious! Our server also, recommended places to visit in...costa rica. We will definitely come back😎More

Really great place - the food is amazing and affordable. The surroundings are cozy and with a great view of the volcano on sunny days. The staff are also really great - our server Andrey was a huge part of the reason we came every...night during our stay in La Fortuna. 10/10 would recommend coming here - I will definitely do so if I’m in the neighborhood.More

We made a reservation but it's not busy season and certainly wasn't needed. He had pork ribs, which looked like chops and were tender and flavorful. No need for the additional, two-sweet sauce. Great sides: salad barely dressed, fresh veggies and mashed potatoes. I had...whole sea bass. Sooo good! Somehow they managed to crisp up the outside while leaving the rest moist and tasty. Service was slow but we were not in a hurry. Front of the place is for tourists, in back there's a big area for locals. We went there based on a recommendation from staff at our hotel: "I don't know what you will think. I like to eat there." Turns out we really do too.More

Great place and service. A little bit away from Tabacon resort and in the heart of La Fortuna, but 2 Tito’s and waters with a lemon were $7. Yes, $7 for the both. So $3.50 a drink. It’s worth the extra drive into town. Jose...was a great server and went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of. He even called a taxi for us and greeted us on the way out. Would recommend every time. Didn’t eat food cause we just came from dinner, but would give this place a 10/10. Jose!!!!!!!More
