Great choice to eat food we all enjoy in Costa Rica - but amped up a bit - better quality, nicely displayed. Not your typical soda - nice environment as well.

Families, couples, singles. Latin music - not too loud. Enjoyable meal with a great server (he was trying to learn English, I was trying to learn Spanish) Great refresco. Prices average for the area.

One of my favorite lunches on a recent Costa Rica trip was at this restaurant. Really fantastic chicarones casado for a reasonable price. More a locals spot than for tourists.

Typical restaurant with good selection of "bocas", large selection of beers and the food is very good. The ambiance is that of a bar, floors are a little bit dirty for my taste, parking could be a challenge. Not for kids.

Have been here many times, one of the best places in CR to eat some "bocas tipicas" like the Chifrijo, Patacones, Pozol, Chicharrones, and others

Nothing beats casona de lali for local food and flavors. Best bang for the buck by far. Mixed patacones are to die for. I really like this place. Always leave satisfied and feeling like a got a great deal. Don't miss out!
