We really enjoyed this. It had many local offerings that we enjoyed. It is not like an American steak house, but great. Our server did not speak English, but Fernan with Pura Vita Tours and Transfers had a guide for us who helped us make fantastic choices.

One of our many not very memorable meals that we nave had over the years. You know the type ,nothing really wrong but no real wow factor. I do read that some thought this place gave them the best meal they have ever had,sadly we cannot and would not say that. We hope that you can have a better experience... More

Great food, excellent service. A charming local steak house. The waiter did not know much English at all so it gave us an opportunity to practice our Spanish. A wonderful experience.

We ate here several times during our trip to the La Fortuna area. We were staying near by in Platanar. All the dishes were great. Grilled chicken, fabulous chicken soup (soup ranchera), patacones, chicharones, all delicious and very reasonably priced.

Well, being a steak house, we probably should have ordered the steak. I don't remember what we ordered but it was average at best. The atmosphere is very casual. There was a TV playing Costa Rica's version of Let's Make a Deal which was sort of entertaining. The service was kind of slow and there were only 2 other tables... More

In Oct. 2010, my wife and I took our son and daughter in law on vacation to Costa Rica. While staying at the Tilajari resort we went for a drive around the area and found this restaurant. Located somewhat in the middle of nowhere in an older style building but it was clean and the service was outstanding. My son... More

While the restaurant building is a little dated and sits beside a fairly busy road, you will forget about those things once you get your meal. We ate there twice and both times the food was excellent. The beef is very good and tender. If you can't decide on what you want, try the "Land and Sea", it is a... More
