It was a quiet evening at the restaurant (low season), but we were pleasantly surprised to get Filet Mignon and Tenderloin stakes under $19 USD. Very reasonable price and great food.

In a middle range of price, Perla serves some of the tastiest and beautiful dishes ever in Costa Rica. Seafood is the specialty, but beef is great as well. Number 1 in La Fortuna, for sure!

Took a school group here and my kids were all able to find something they liked. I loved the local food options as did the other adults with us.
