Hungry and needing a restroom, we made a pit stop here on our way from San Jose to Playas del Coco. We were a little apprehensive since the restaurant shares space with a Burger King and a Papa John's, but the food was surprisingly tasty!...More

We have been here 4 years in a row. It was the best food we have ever had in Costa Rica. We were sad to see they were closed for the season this year. We will miss Miguel and his wife's amazing food this year.

We would recommend this stop for a dinner or nice lunch. Miquel the owner and his wife Katya are very gracious. The cuisine is tropical euro fusion. You will not find your typical casados here. We only had seafood but they seem to be known...More
