Absolutely the best meal we had in Santa Elena. Great service, excellent food (we had the quesadilla, arroz con vegetales, and vegetable soup). Ingredients tasted fresh, well-spiced, and very reasonably priced. Go here for authentic Costa Rican food & to support a local family-owned business!...More

I had the hamburger regular. The meat was not top quality but it tasted good. The service was reasonably fast and friendly.

Excellent food, outsourcing the chicken. I had arroz con pollo. Very delicious. I had two cups of coffee and a slice of cake for $7. So not be worried by the outside. The soda (family restaurant) is spotless inside. Great place to eat real Costa...More
