Lucky find along the way to Arenal national park. Great food that everyone in our party enjoyed. No one left hungry- best arroz con pollo yet! A visit by a Tucan and wild turkey were a plus.

We stopped here after hiking at the Volcano National Park and had amazing service and terrific food! They bent over backwards to make sure we were happy and we would definitely recommend. The view was wonderful and the animals that come up to you adorable!

We had lunch and a beer after visiting the Arenal Volcano National Park. The food was great and service was very friendly, especially Marvin (of course). We would definitely go there again!

We stopped here for lunch after the suspension bridges and before hiking in the national park. Extremely well located 1km from the park. Friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. The observatory rice was the best traditional dish we've had so far. Highly recommend it!
