Our server Paola was fantastic! Made great suggestions on what we should all eat. Food was great as well. The hot sauce here is amazing as well as their white sauce. Seafood soup and cheese empanada were my favorite. A reservation is needed.

4 out of our 6 meals out in La Fortuna and all were incredible. Paola was great in helping us with our limited ability to speak Spanish. Was personable and friendly. Looked forward to seeing her each time!

Awesome Costa Rican food with great service. We did the special steak and the classic casado with pork. The sauces are great, both the white and the spicy. Great beer and drink selection. Pretty fast service as well so a great lunch stop after zip...lining or checking out the falls nearby.More

We ate here on our first night in La Fortuna. The service was good and the prices were quite fair. I ordered a mixed grill and several of the meats were deep fried and one of the meats was "off". My wife ordered a chicken...mushroom linguine which she said was quite good = but the portion was very small. We both left hungry and disappointed. However we understand how tough the restaurant business is = so we gave it a 5 star review for the excellent service,More

We ate lunch here at the advice of locals for authentic Costa Rican food and couldn’t have been more satisfied. The appetizers and meals we ate were fantastic! We LOVE spicy food and sauce and their spicy salsa did not disappoint! Soooo good! Everything we...ate was super fresh and delicious. Our server Paola was so kind and helpful. If we didn’t have to return to the US we would eat here all the time!More

What a surprise. My wife and I stopped in at 6:30pm for dinner with no reservation. We waited in the bar for a drink until a table was ready. We had the sea bass special and it was great. But, the service was the best...thing about our visit. Poola was great! Funny, engaging, answered all our questions, and gave great suggestions. Ask for her if you visit.More

Great restaurant in La Fortuna serving up delicious Costa Rican food. Open air dining room with nice ambiance. Our waiter Roberto provided great service. I ordered ceviche followed by the mixed grill, Carnitas de mi Tierra, and everything was excellent. This was our most enjoyable...dining experience when visiting the Arenal region. Even though it is away from the action along the main road, it is a popular place and making a reservation is a good idea. I phoned a week before our arrival and had no problems requesting a reservation.More

Really bad experience - we arrived, ordered drinks and waited 45 mins for them to arrive. At that minute we knew all was not well - this was a Tuesday evening in a not very busy restaurant. Thereafter, it took 10 mins to get any...service attention, and drinks and food took a crazy amount of time to arrive - there seemed to be confusion at every level and by the time our food arrived we were having a bad time with by now very rude waiting staff, which took the edge off of our last night in Costa Rica Food was ok but nothing special, have enjoyed far better meals in the country and area. Not sure why this has so many good reviews for a very mediocre, dysfunctional restaurantMore

Best food we had during our visit in La Fortuna. The pork was the best we’ve ever had. They almost didn’t allow us to be seated during dinner because we didn’t have a reservation, but a table opened up and we got in. So happy...a local recommended this place!More
