Good morning Hayness

Cafe Mundo offers international cuisine , we do not claim to be a traditional costarican fare restaurant , I am sorry to correct you, our food is not "american" as you claim , we have many options based on the traditions of many countries ....

I'm not that picky when it comes to pizza. I'll always finish it.

However, four of us eating today found the pizzas dire.

Staff friendly, nice location.

Went actually for a steak but beet here in Central America is too expensive, but the chicken was very good, the sangria too easy to drink and semi lethal on an empty tummy. The stand out was the crepes...... Service was very good , friendly and quick.

We were taken to this restaurant which was a short walk from our hotel. It was so good we went back the next night also. The setting is a wonderful old house with terraces and a lush garden turned into a restaurant. Each room is decorated in an individual style and it is the perfect place for groups of people who want a room to themselves. The food was wonderfully fresh and there were lots of options for vegetarians. I had a fabulous Salad Nicoise and when you order a glass of wine you actually get a full glass, not the thimble -full often served in restaurants. The next night I had a large eggplant entree and a delicious chocolate mousse.
