Stopped in here before our horse tour. We were hungry. The food came out quickly and was filling. And to top it off, we each got a slice of banana cake!

Absolutely the best meal we had in Santa Elena. Great service, excellent food (we had the quesadilla, arroz con vegetales, and vegetable soup). Ingredients tasted fresh, well-spiced, and very reasonably priced. Go here for authentic Costa Rican food & to support a local family-owned business!...More
