Great service, and pretty good food. We got the chifrijo, a Costa Rican dish. The crispiest chicharrón I’ve ever had!

I guess there aren't more restaurants like that at Alajuela. Good price and service. The rice could be better.

We enjoyed a lemonade and berry smoothie, a delicious sandwich and butterfinger crepe for dessert. Not only was the food delicious but the service,atmosphere and music all complimented the food. Thanks for a great meal on our last day in Costa Rica.

I went to this cafeteria and ordered pasta. It was creamy and flavourful. The service was amazing and I the lemonade is the most refreshing thing ever. I am looking forward to go again. They also serve crepes.
