We've had many excellent meals in CR during our 3 week trip, but this restaurant was by far the best! The service was impeccable and place was spotless. We had the German smoked ribs, schnitzel in a delicious sauce, mashed potatoes, fries, sauerkraut. The highlight was the lemon quark cake. And great coffee.

We truly enjoyed our typical Tico brunch here, our last meal before leaving Costa Rica that afternoon. We were hosted by Fabio, who has a kind and professional manner and luminous personality. He looked after us and accommodated our specific requests with ease, then packed our lunch so it would be easy to enjoy on the flight. Meli the owner is a lovely person, who makes delicious mermelada and other savoury sauces and jams. Balcon de Cafe has the feeling of home away from home, it is bright, whimsical, and delicious. Thank you to the whole team!

On the road to Poas, this is an amazingly good cafe serving sandwiches, entrees and lots of desserts. The fish and schnitzel were excellent, as was the coffee. One of the best meals we had in Costa Rica.
