Great service. We have been in costa rica for a week now and this is the best meal we've had! Moderate prices in a high priced town.

Excellent service, big portions of simple, well prepared and tasty food. Highly recommended for the budget minded, one meal is equivalent to two. Also try the craft beer they offer, some of the best in Costa Rica.
