Small place with a local, family style feel. My husband and I were wandering around trying to find a place to eat when a storm rolled in, so we ducked into the first restaurant we found. What good luck we had! Good food, friendly service.

We ate here twice while we stayed at Camino Verde, which is right next door. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door and chose a table. The first night we both ordered casadas and had much more food than we could eat. We liked it so well we went back a second time and were equally... More

Inexpensive and good soup. Very Friendly service. Greeted as soon as we walked in to select a table. Good choice if you're on a budget and are looking for a average meal.

This place is great. We had the pork and chicken fajitas and they both were phenomenal. I highly recommend giving this a try!

I would not like to comment from meat eaters perspective. However I believe the amount of hype for this Soda is not worth it in general. It is a local place run by family and the do not understand English.!! takes lot of time to get food. And we ordered Casada Veg and we did not like it as we... More

If you arrive and there is a large group, leave and go back another time. It took over a half hour for us to get drinks and they forgot mine. It took over an hour and a half to actually get our food. The woman serving us was clearly overwhelmed by a group of 12 people, but there is no... More

We stayed two nights in Monteverde and both evening we ate there. The family is so kind and the food was delicious. I can recommend the chicken fajitas or the casado with pork ribs (it was the speciality of the day) best food in costa rica so far
