This place is kind of hidden, but find it and you won't be disappointed. Run by a family, this had some of the best food we ate during our 10 day stay. The plates were typical Costa Rican style but the sauces and seasoning were delectable and amazing. From the chicken to the pork chops to the vegetarian dishes, each... More

Delightful staff was so welcoming and the Chicken Lasagna was more delicious with every bite,it was homemade pasta and I will dream about this restaurant till I get back there.

My wife and I was there, I took the fish with mushroom sauce and my wife had a steak. The fish was good, but the mushroom sauce felt strange. The steak was very well cooked and my wife loved it. It was a nice place and the staff was friendly.

The staff is friendly and the restaurant is clean. It was an easy walk from our hotel. I expected really good cuisine based on the reviews and was pretty disappointed. The menu is not extensive. The dinner choices are beef, chicken, & fish prepared simply, no fancy sauces or anything. I ordered the ceviche. While I appreciate that it was... More

We are staying at the Cala Lodge in Monteverdi and as everyone knows who has been here the town is quite spread out and can be challenging to get around! As our walk through town did not reveal any restaurants that did not look like tourist traps, we decided to eat at De Lucia which on the side road of... More

Had grilled chicken sandwiches for lunch and then had to come back for dinner, which did not disappoint. $3 house wine by the glass was good and a welcome bargain.

We went for dinner, the food was delicious and the service was great. We had local craft beer, made not far from the restaurant, and we were offered an appetizer to share for our table.
