The quirky decor was the attraction for us but we were doubly pleased that the food was great too. I had delicious nachos and my friends ate a ceviche which was fresh and tasty. Lava Lounge has a good vibe and although we were there during a quiet lunch period, I imagine that it is a lot of fun in the evenings.

One of the most animated place in La Fortuna, well decorated. Try the coconut chicken, good plate... good atmosphere with concert. Service a bit too quick, American style!

The restaurant is a bit noisy, but it is definitely a fun night spot. There's cheesy lava theme throughout. Also the business helps care for stray dogs, of which there are several around to keep diners company. We donated some money in a collection box toward this effort as we left. Of all the restaurants we visited in Costa Rica, this one was the least friendly but the service was fair.

Upon recommendation from our Lonely Planet guide book, we had dinner here during a 4 night stay in Fortuna. Immediately the vibe was upbeat and friendly, unlike so many of the other restaurants in Fortuna that are empty and look a bit depressing. The food here was great, with lots of choices. The seafood ceviche was excellent. The servings were generous and the waiter was attentive and friendly. They were setting up for live music and there were plenty of patrons while we were there. The location right on the street corner is great for just watching the local activities. We were surprised that it is a cash only restaurant. Thankfully we had just enough cash on us that night to cover our tab. Definitely recommend this spot in Fortuna. While on a rafting trip, our guide, a local Fortuna resident, went on and on about this place and said it is one of the best.
