While doing an internship in San Ignacio my program arranged for me to have my dinner at Erva's M-F. I can not express how grateful I am for the love, food, and great conversations I get every time I visit. Taking over the restaurant once his mother, Erva, retired, Karim makes everything from scratch and is very good about customizing... More

When 15 people suddenly arrive at a restaurant you can't expect instant service but eventually we were served with delicious food. While waiting we were able to partake of some delicious but very inexpensive cocktails(Mojitos). We were sitting outside on the verandah which was very pleasant as it was very humid.

Tucked behind the main street this simple restaurant serves some really tasty local food. It is not fancy at all and a bit slow - as it seems everything is prepared fresh - but we really enjoyed the food.

I went to Erva's my first night in SAN Ignacio because of a review I read on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. We sat on the patio facing a quiet street and were immediately greeted by our waiter who brought us our drinks. Two of us had the fish with fresh vegetables and one of us had a pork... More

We went early for dinner and were the first ones to arrive. Spoke with the chef and explained we are vegetarians and what we can eat. He made suggestions and explained what the dishes are and helped us decide. Food was great and very reasonably priced. Later, the restaurant got crowded and we were waited by a second person. When...

The service was fast and friendly but the food and drink were only ok. We ordered vegetarian fried rice and foundnit was a bit overpriced for the quality. The fresh juice was also a bit watered down but not bad.
