Great Casado-both vegetarian and fish. Very generous portions and copious amounts of cold water to help it. Attentive service

We have gone here twice now! Once for dinner and then again for breakfast. It is a simple place but service is excellent! For breakfast I had a huevos ranchero that was so good my husband licked the plate. For dinner he had the pork special yummy and I had clams and mussels also delicious. Coffee was also really good.... More

We are so happy that we stopped here. First, the owner is wonderful. He brought a candle to our table and immediately treated us as family. Second, the plates were hearty and delicious. My plate had an excellent portion of fish and avocado while my fiance's rice dish was like a local paella. Come all and come hungry!

I had read great reviews of Organico next door, but Organico was closed (for days... must be out of business). So we tried La Naranja. The owner/manager was very welcoming and very kind to our kids. The menu is surprisingly large for such a small kitchen. I was not expecting much, but my whole family was very pleased with the... More

We stopped here for lunch having just climbed the waterfalls and had a wonderful surprise as the food was so good! The owner was very attentive and we enjoyed the freshly caught tuna steak (it was huge!) with Chimichurri and the arroz con pollo. A surprisingly good lunch for an excellent price!

I went to this place a couple of times when visiting Montezuma and really liked the food (breakfast, lunch and dinner). The owners are really friendly and best of all: there's free coffee refills on the breakfast!

We stopped here a few times while in town and it was always good. They'll make smoothies in any possible combination that you can think of. Had huevos rancheros one morning for breakfast and it was terrific. A solid choice.

This was by far the best Casados we have tried in Costa Rica. This is a simple family run soda and the host is welcoming and attentive. We ate here twice and often saw people look at the menu and walk on to the more expensive places in town. You must visit this restaurant at least once when in Montezuma.

We walked in here without knowing about it because we were just so hungry but we were pleasantly surprised to find cheap food that tasted great! Cute little spot to people watch. The casados was very good, chicken was seasoned really well and the fish was delicious as well. Definitely worth a stop :)
