Traditional foods as well as well known favourites, friendly staff and good service. The cafe is located on one of the main roads into La Fortuna directly across from the church and town square

Enjoyed a nice lunch with friends. The restaurant was busy but we were not in a hurry and we received our orders promptly. I ordered their ceviche and it was the Best I ever had! Loads of fish!

Ate lunch, food was ok but nothing special and certainly didnt look like some photos on TA. Felt like tourist prices and dont like when menu prices are in dollars and then you cant pay by credit card in dollars and so they converted to Colones.

The prices of our menu products are based on actual production costs and financial standards that allow us to obtain a fair margin of cost and profit always adjusted to the economic reality of COSTA RICA. We can not compare the cost of the products of the country of origin of our clients since they are different economies.
Our payment system with credit card allows the payment in colones or dollars but it is the client who must indicate his preference. Each country works by default its local currency and the model should not disturb because it is an international rule.
I am sure that in the United States you can not pay in colones and receive change in colones and for that reason to annoy to me.
The photos uploaded to the page do not depend on our control, are uploaded by clients and are not editable
Thank you for your cooperation and have an excellent day

Had a couple of nice drinks here while in La fortuna and can't complain! Beers were reasonably priced and the staff were great, what more could you want?

After dining at Lava Rocks, we opted for gelato for dessert. I chose oreo flavor and my girlfriend chose chocolate chip mint. I thought it was very tasty and my girlfriend loved it very much! We would highly recommend it if you want a tasty dessert! Service was quick and there is a variety of flavors to choose.
