Some of the best Typically Tico food I've had living here in Atenas and prices are more than reasonable

Date of visit: September 2018

I ordered Camarones (Shrimps), they were fresh and tasty. Also the restaurant is visited by many locals which confirms that this is a good place to eat.

The location is very noisy -- right off hwy 3, close to downtown Atenas. It is very noisy. I've eaten there twice and both times was hopeful, but disappointed.

We ate her on a recommendation our third night in Atenas. The Tico food was average, although the ceviche served to my neighbor looked better. The reason for the star rating is the location is horrible, right at the flashing light intersection on Highway 3....The roar of trucks and motorcycles and the smell of diesel fuel do not make for dining. If you like the food there, get it to go.More

Stopped by for lunch, had ceviche (both fish and seafood ceviche), salads and was well pleased. A little noisy because of the location, but don't let that be a deterrent! Eat local and enjoy!

We enjoyed two nice meals here. The portions are large so my husband and I split the enslada de la casa (like a chef salad but more) and an entree. Everything was delicious and the al fresco dining was a bonus.

We live here. We eat out often. We have never been served food that we thought rated, "terrible" ... until now. One of us ordered a "boca" (very small meal) of what the waiter said would be 3 chicken wings; the other ordered a popular...dish, arroz con pollo (rice with chicken.) The chicken wings were fried way too long in oil way too cool so that they arrived at the table swimming in grease -- and there were only two of them, broken into 4 parts (to look like more?). Slimey. The arroz con pollo was the really big loser. We may never figure out how they did that dish. The rice was that crunchy chewy texture that can only come from repeated microwaving or microwaving way too long; while the chicken pieces seemed to have been burnt in an oven and maybe then microwaved to a double death, along with the rice. Hard on the teeth and flavorless. Thankfully, the boca came with some yucca that hadn't been ruined and the arroz dish came with a small handful of french fries that had probably been deep fried in the same basket with the wings. They were quite dark and greasy but at least they weren't tough and they took the edge off. Almost all of the arroz dish was left untouched on the table. With an ambiance of diesel trucks and busses accelerating hard, to get across Rta 3, about 5 meters from your veranda table, punctuated by the roaring buzz of those ever-present motor bikes, we'd place this establishment as a last resort for dining out. The Coca-Cola was good though.More

After a couple of hours walking around Atenas on a little shopping trip, I stopped by El Mejor Clima, a local "Soda" restaurant and bar with a good reputation. For $5 I got a Casado (plate lunch) with more food than I could eat, including,...chicken, beans, rice, cassava (called yucca here), salad with tomatoes, avocado slice and peppers. I got it in a to go box and walked home with all my bags to eat in my apartment. Nice!More
