This family owned business is a gem! Stopped here while on a tour of Costa Rica - food was amazing and the owners / staff were friendly and just as amazing.

Stopped in Monteverdi with a group of 18 during an adventure trip to Costa Rica and everyone loved their food. A definite stop while in Monteverdi. Highly recommend. Beer wasn't impressive, but others seem to love their desserts.
