Sometimes you want something a little fancy while you are in Arenal. Something offsite from your hotel, authentic with a little twist. This place was so delicious. They had traditional Costa Rican dishes with a bit of a nouveau twist. So we had like an aracini ball made with casava flour. Or like, grass fed rib eye, with traditional side sauces. Their casado plate came with like this BOMB hash that had Papaya in it. So like most restaurants in Arenal/ La Fortuna it is open air, but they still managed to get this cozy feeling through out. The staff there were accommodating and gave us so many recommendations. The ceviche had large chunks of fish in it and was served with these casava chips. The empanadas had a delightful dill sauce with them. The portions are good, so you will leave full. The desserts were just as good as the food. We ordered a lemon shortbread custard dessert that was so refreshing and decadent. Also a scoop of ice cream (made from happy cows) with house made chcolate.
This restaurant is probably the closest you will get to a downtown/ millennial/ hipster gastropub. But there is no snooty attitudes or long waits. Definitely worth it.
They accept colones/ credit cards/ and US dollars. Will also call you a taxi/ or your driver back to your hotel afterwards.
