We walked from Cala Lodge to this great restaurant every night if our stay. Everything was absolutely fantastic. I had chicken and my husband had steak and we had some great red wine. It is an absolute must with great prices. We will be back.

Our group of four had the fish tacos and vegetarian pasta. Everyone loved their meal. We also sampled the margaritas and the stout beer. Wonderful!

Excellent family restaurant that lived up to the reviews. I had steak fajitas. My wife had the fettucine. Both were excellent with ample portions. Good value for the money. Service was top notch. No complaints at all. Would definitely return here

The first thing I loved about the Restaurante De Lucia is the beautiful natural cedar floor, filling the room with a soft, delightful aroma. The second was one of the best guaro sours I enjoyed in Costa Rica! Dishes we’d recommend include homemade chicken soup...and the large, beef tenderloin. Clearly everything served by De Lucia is carefully prepared with pride. We loved our dining experience, thank you!More

This is a family run restaurant and you'll quickly feel right at home with the staff. Wonderful service, great menu, good sized servings. People in my large group ordered a variety of food and EVERYONE was very happy with their meal. Full bar has anything...you'd like to drink.More

We ordered filet mignon (good), chicken lasagna (very good), pasta (average) and Peruvian ceviche (not so good). Appetizer was home made tortillas with excellent guacamole and other sides. For desert we had the tres leches which was excellent. The atmosphere was very nice and very...good service. The pricing was fair.More

Wow! This food was amazing, tasty & full in flavor. I travel to Costa Rica for my honey moon. My wife and I got the grilled chicken with rice, frijoles and salad. The chicken was rich in taste and cooked to perfection. The rice and...beans cooked to perfection! Even the carrots were cooked to perfection. Restaurant is elegant and Well maintained. Our waiter , Gabriel, was very attentive to us. I recommend this restaurant to any visitor & tourist that are around the area. COMIDA MUY PHENOMENAL Y RIQUÍSIMA!!More

What a find!!! Covid has reduced the number of travelers to the cloud forest region of Costa Rica, so we were able to just walk into this restaurant that is normally packed. The atmosphere was homey with the dark wood. We were able to sit...outside under an awning and watch the rain. We were privileged enough to meet the owner, who was interesting and kind. The staff was super personable and responsive. The best part was that the food was amazing and good sized portions for a good price. For Chileans, they offer Pisco Sour, which is an amazing drink that is not available in many places. Great time. Gracias!More

Worth a drive off the beaten path. Not many people there and why not? Good service and good food! Mix of Italian with seafood choices. Their guaro sours were much to my liking! Patronize this place. They do a good job!

Absolutely delicious! Family run spot, beautiful, and wonderful food. I’ve been here several times and I will be back a lot! Mexican steak, grilled sea bass, and filet are all excellent! 💚
