The food was good. I had just too much food but I liked it and the price was perfect. Especially for the backpackers it is a good place to go is. Also, I really liked the fruit drink.

We ate here one of the nights we stayed in Monteverde. The food was good (especially the patacones with guacamole) and they had a nice variety, but the service was a bit more laid back than I'm used to.

This particular location is in Front la Plaza, on the second floor with a nice balcony and view of town. Local food, with band playing, staff in traditional dress and free sides of fried plantains and chicharron for National Day. I had a bad flue...More

Sabor tico was recommended by locals and tourists, so we went for dinner. The portions were huge, reasonable priced. But it wasn’t as good as all the people said. Feels a bit like mass instead of class;)

Wife and I visited this place some time back while on vacation, and we still dream of it. The food was amazing, and extremely affordable priced. My only advice was to watch for the portions! They’re generous, and my wife and I ordered way too...More

The prices are around $5-$8 per dish but comes with a lot of food. We found this place to be the best food for the price in Monteverde. If you check out the prices on their photos of the menu just divide the price by 568.5... More
