We had a lunch in this restaurant heading to the volcano. The food was excellent, especially the local beef and the strawberry smoothie. Daniel, the host, was so kind and helpful, that we happily returned again for a dessert and a coffee when coming back...from the volcano. Coffee was one of the best I had in Costa Rica, fresh beans and perfectly prepared! Highly recommended!More

We came across this place after visiting the Poás Volcano. It’s very close and a great spot to refuel after the hike. Our server was Daniel and he was beyond helpful with his recommendations. Very friendly and attentive. I got the mixed fajitas and my...husband got the chicken Casado. Both were very good! The homemade yellow mustard/garlic oil in the table is amazing! I wish I could’ve bought some to take home. We also had the strawberry smoothie and a cappuccino! All very tasty. It was so good we came back the next morning for breakfast and coffee. This time I had a cold brew latte and my husband has just black cold brew. Both very good! We shared the French toast after already having eggs at our airbnb earlier. Highly recommend! The strawberry jam and honey was Phenomenal! We will definitely be back when we make our way to the Poas region again. Thanks Daniel! Also, thanks for insisting on my husband joining me for a pic in front of the heart lights. It’s a memory we now cherish!More
