“Good food - wife LOVED their chicken wrap”
Reviewed 16 March 2012

We ate here for lunch before heading out of town. I had a chicken sandwich (which was very good), kids split quesadillas and my wife had a chicken wrap. My wife said the wrap tasted very "healthy" and was the best chicken wrap she's ever had. I guess this was extra healthy tasting as most food in CR is healthier than what's in the US.

“Great Fajitas”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

We ate here our first night in La Fortuna after a very action packed day of zip lining and hiking and we were hungry. We heard about the great fajitas so ordered steak fajitas, guacamole and salads. All the food was very, very good and it was nice sitting at a table right at the sidewalk. There are a lot of dogs and cats walking around the streets so it was fun to watch them. There are a couple of cute cats that reside in the restaurant and are very happy if you give them a little taste of your dinner.......

“Good food”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

We have eaten at The Lava Lounge many times. The food is good and is it a convenient stop while traveling through La Fortuna.
Most anything you can think of from burgers, ceviche to a typical Costa Rica meal is on this menu.

“Touristy place, decent food”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

Food here is very much ok (we had an Asia Salad and a Pasta). Prices are average. Service is totally disorganized: During our first 5 minutes, we were approached by 5 different servers.
There are a lot of tourists here, probably no ticos. .
