We ate here twice while staying at Holiday Inn Express. Excellent food the first time, but just ok the second time. Convenient though. We got chicken fajita tacos both times.

Nearby the Holiday Inn. The food was very good and the service was prompt. It was a good value. We enjoyed it on our last day in Costa Rica.
