Set in a garden surrounding and overlooking a lake is this beautiful place. Despite a vast seating area, the place got quite crowded on Sunday afternoon that we visited. The buffet had a vast selection. The waitresses struggled bravely and smilingly to fulfil other orders....More

First, for what you get I think it is too expensive. The Sunday buffet is good one time and horrible the next. The parking area is large, the atmosphere is nice and the wait staff are attentive. It has probably been at least a year...More

This was the best buffett I have had in all of Costa Rica. Drinks were fresh juices, the soups and salads were tasty and the main course was turkey and beef tips and pork chops.

I have been twice to this restaurant. Both times for lunch... always full of patrons... you get your monies worth with the selection of food, specially on Sunday brunch. The views and ambiance of Cachi Lake is a great backdrop for dinning.
