My husband & I both agree that the steaks here were very good for CR steaks. Unusual place w/the feel of being in the Jungle. We would go back!

Nice Costan Rican dinners, rice and beans are cooked just right and served with salad and either Chicken or Pork and a good value. They also have a singer who comes in on Friday night. You can't go wrong
