We enjoyed our visit. The food was great and the service was exceptional. Mario and Kimberli took very good care of us. The drive from La Fortuna was very enjoyable. We highly recommend.

The decoration is quite simple. The place is clean and the service is very kind. There was only a couple eating at the table next to me so the food came fast. It was very good. The chicken portion was a bit small but the overall taste and flavor were remarkable. If you are driving, this restaurant is around 10-15 minutes away from La Fortuna downtown.
The waitress was always available and eager to assist and help.
Finally, I ordered a "postre de la casa" or dessert of the house. It was a great choice. An amazing taste. I left absolutely happy and satisfied.

My family of 14 went here on New Years Eve expecting a delicious dinner based on the reviews.
We were very disappointed in the quality of the food. The ceviche was rubbery and flavorless. The other dishes were bland and the rice and beans were completely dried out.
The steak we ordered came out raw and we had to send it back twice.

Delicious food, great service and a real hidden gem. A little bit out of town but definitely worth the drive!
