An excellent restaurant for a coffee or lunch whilst touring around Lake Arenal. Do not be put off by the touristic setting. The day we visited the train driver was not available and therefore we were unable to appreciate the full site

Recommended by a friend. The restaurant close to the route is cosy and clean. While the prices are ok, the quality of the menu is not what I expect. Can't write about the other ammenities of the farm, because I could not visit.

We ordered a steak and the meat was very bad, cheap quality and full of fat. They did not want to change the dish and the service was very bad. They also have their cows locked with chains all day and never let them out. We confirmed this with a local.

We ate at Los Heroes after a hike. The schnitzel and goulash were pretty good. The views were nice. The restaurant and the whole area was very beautiful.

Although this place has seen its better days, we were pleased by the overall time spent here. Our group of 7 were the only ones here. Even so, we rode the train up to the restaurant on the hill. They served us well and the view was spectacular.

To find a Swiss restaurant in the interior of Costa Rica with a train ride to boot interesting to the point of being irresistible. Good service had to have a fondue.. Yodeling music piped in... Nice and different. Friendly staff. Beautiful setting

Went for schnitzel which was okay but no purple cabbage or pan fried potatoes. Didn't like the calves outside in the pens, looked like their pets. Disappointed. No view as it was pouring with rain. The train looked interesting but too late to go. Don't go for german food if that's what you want. Try neuveau arenal.

Toy train ride over old bridges past a wonderful chapel and cows in pasture, to the secret 'rotating' hotel (check out the invisible air blower here) on the hill with a small museum and the best panoramic view of the lake and Arenal volcano while having rich strawberry ice cream made the day special like a dream. The stay was... More
