We had dinner here. The meal was not haute cuisine but the food was good and definitely value for money. You may want to walk to the back of the restaurant while your meal is prepared to watch the birds. Friendly staff.

Hola Miriam - la visitamos en 2009 y no nos olvidamos de usted - abajo esta el anuncio que pusimos de nuestra visita en tripadvisor para que la conocieran mas personas. No creo que se acuerde de nosotros - salimos muy temprano en la manana nuestro ultimo dia - pero por si acaso - Daniela, Carl y nuestros 3 hijos. Nos gustria regresar en Marzo del 2018 y quedarnos en una de sus cabanas! Le llamare a: 85-93-60-32. Muchas Gracias! “Wonderful views and bird watching!! Cabanas at Miriam's - great deal!” Reviewed 20 May 2009 San Gerardo de Dota was the last stop in our 2-week trip to Costa Rica. I am SO glad we went!! The drive to get there was very "interesting" - the road is narrow and steep, but SO worth it!! After a whole day of searching, we were able to see the famous and incredibly beautiful quetzal bird! Along with hundreds of hummingbirds, woodpeckers, and many other birds. We found out of a GREAT place to eat very close to a hotel called "Dantica" - with Senora Miriam - who offered us wonderful locally made meals! Mrs. Miriam and her husband also have 2 cabins for rent - very simple but clean - we saved a LOT by staying here. To reserve a cabin, you can call Senora Miriam at [--]. She does not speak a lot of English, but is a wonderful host.
