We really enjoyed the casados, juices and nachos at this great little lunch spot. Unfortunately, the restaurant was HOT that day, seating was sweltering and eating almost felt like a workout. After we left, we cooled off out in the sun. Park on the street....More

We stopped here after a coffee tour and had two delicious casados and brought some apple pie back with us for dessert!

Before leaving Nicoya, we had to check it out. Filled with locals meeting for a pastry and coffee or for lunch, it offered good Tico fare at a good price and with good table service.

I enjoyed my arroz con camarones. My friends had the super tacos and enjoyed them. Their batidos are really good. They have lots of baked goods for sale. They have art for sale on the walls.

Good food, not great. Nice location. Very average first impression on serving... been here twice and it always looks like that are not bothered about giving information on the many or deserts. Maybe will be back, maybe won't...

Stuck in Nicoya for a night whilst visiting Barra Honda. It's not the greatest town for tourists but stumbled across this place. Despite my lack of Spanish and the owners lack of English we worked through ordering drinks and meals. Food was classic Tico fare...More

It's one of those, you get what you pay for type of place. A better option than some fast food joints. It's centralized location it's a plus, making it an easy pick.

This used to be our favourite, but they lacked consistency, clealiness, and efficiency. This is not in the same league as Soda Prua Vida, just down the road, which we highly recommend, and it also has the cleanest toilets in town.
