I went for dinner with friends I met on my trip, and greatly enjoyed it. The staff was nice, multiple choices on the menu, fair prices, and the food was really good. Very nice little restaurant. I would definitely recommend it!

The food was very delicious and the service was good as well. Good place to eat in La Fortuna. Besides that the prices are very low, we paid 10.000 colones (around 15 euros) for two meals and two drinks.

Good food, amazing prices, large portions, and friendly staff. You cannot go wrong here. I had the sopa de negra. And my husband had the pork chop casado. We came here on the recommendation of the hotel and our shuttle driver.

Got the Onion soup and vegetarian sandwich. The soup could have fed 3 people, it was huge! Needs a little more veggie friendly options, but otherwise all staff was very friendly. Very authentic atmosphere.

I'm not sure, but I had dinner there late one night, around 9:30 pm and they where still open. And they also serve breakfast. So my guess would be all day every day
