Fantastic food and service. We stayed walking distance to this place for two nights and dined there two evenings in a row. The four items my husband and I had between us were all excellent. I especially liked the grilled chicken and orange sauce pork. Both were excellent. The spinach pasta was also perfectly creamy and flavorful. Also don't leave... More

Was quiet when we were there but the food and service were both excellent. The host was entertaining and the menu had kid friendly options.

Great service and the food is delicious! The location is a dream with hummingbirds by your side. Loved the escargots, cheese plate, and beef chateaubriand!

Hidden in the mountains of Poas, is this jewel. Highly recommended. Their cheese entree and foie gras just delicious!. We tried several dishes and loved the rabbit too. Their bread and garlic butter is also great. Good wine selection and coffee is delicious. And leave room for a dessert, they are manginficent!!

Was really excited to try this place after reading the reviews. I'm not sure if the older guy in the chef is the owner, but if he is.. No wonder the place was empty. First didn't take our drink order, then when we asked recommendations.. Said everything is good. Not very helpful for people who have never been to your... More

Droped in for lunch after a visit to Poas volcano. I would rate it closer to 4/5 but my wife was a little disappointed in her overcooked salmon. However, the home made terrines, the cured ham and my steak were all very good so overall I feel that this is a nice place to eat. The wine selection was also... More

Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of the food, i couldn't wait to taste it! But i can tell you that the food is just like in the picture. The service is good, usually the french chef serves the meals that he prepares, because of this it can be that you have to wait a bit before eating. Pasta and... More

We took a wrong turn through the mountains and finally broke down to stop at night on our way to La Fortuna from SJO near Poas. This restaurant turned our back road mountain pass misery around. I had the escargot appetizer and rabbit stew in beer and prune sauce. The escargot was on point and the rabbit stew was spectacular.... More
