This is just next to our house in CR. Easy to get to. It gets a lot of tourists on the road to Monte Verde or Arenal. The food is typical for a Soda, but a great price and we have always enjoyed it.

My husband and I used Ecerra to transport us from San Jose to La Fortuna. Alberto the driver asked what we would like and we were hungry. So he brought us to MI Rancho which is right on North 1. My husband ordered a steak with mashed potatoes. The steak was cooked to the right temp and was a great... More

Great wraps, cold beer & a good vista across the street. Service was quick & food was tasty with the exception that the alfredo sauce on the pasta was not what was expected by one of our kids

We stopped here on our ride to La Fortuna, so this was our first meal in Costa Rica. This chicken and fish were PACKED with flavour (and I normally hate fish). Whatever the yellow stuff on the plate was, was absolutely delicious. The only downfall is that it is a bit pricier compared to what we have been paying in... More

8 of us went there. Friendly, some servers were bilingual which helped. I had their pork special and it was great. Good guacamole appetizer. Would return if in the area

We stopped at this great little restaurant on our way to La Fortuna from San Jose. The food was delicious, the service pretty good and the restrooms clean. Definitely order one of their typical rice plates for the true Costa Rican food experience. And eat outside so you can see the beautiful view!
