The mango drink had no flavour but the Caribbean chicken had lots of flavour. The service needs to care more about what he is doing.

The place is great with good service and good food! The rice and beans with coco and chicken is the best on the island! Also recommended is the rice and beans with fish. Thank you very much!

Good spot to grab Caribbean Casado in Tortuguero. I've had a lot of vegetarian casado on this trip and this one did not disappoint. Be sure to get a fresh juice as well - the pineapple was yummy.

Just loved this restaurant! The food was just amazing. I tried "meat in sauza". Let me tell you, it was unbelievable!!! This is a must stop and the owner/staff are great!

We had the fish and chicken Casado and weren't disappointed! The chicken fell off the bone and the fish melted in your mouth. Delicious home cooked food - we'd go again in a heart beat.

We had the fish and chicken casados here and both were very nice. The portions were good sizes (more meat than other sodas we went to) and was good value. Overall a good little local place.

We had deliciously flavored casados, two with a buttery, sensationally tasty fish. The sauce was made with coconut and lots of spices, but not too much, so the kids liked it to. Would definitely go there again. Nice owner.
