Service was great. Food was excellent. My pork chop while delicious was tiny. My wife's pork chop ( different item in the menu) was larger. The ambience was butterfly themed and pretty.

A nice place to grab dinner on our first night in CR. Friendly, quick, tasty, and a nice building. Had a typical dinner of rice and beans, plantains, and chicken.

We got lunch before moving onto Arenal, and the Monteverde cheese plate was a yummy way to try out the local cheeses! Cheesy decor but it worked for the orchid tour nearby.

Wow! This restaurant knows how to cook rice! Order any type of meat with rice and you'll be pleased! This place was recommended to us by locals.

I'm not sure what you are asking. If you are asking what he did that was rude, I'd simply say that he neglected his duty. We waited and waited to order until I finally had to leave the table and find him to say that we... More
