Don't judge a book by it's cover...........
From the outside, not impressed, but the best food in La Fortuna.
Service was slow but well worth the wait. Everything was fresh and made to order. The presentation of the food well thought out and classy.
We first had a wonderful Fattoush Salad (very unique), Ceviche (very fresh), and Falafel with a to die for sauce.
Second we ordered a Lamb Kabob and Tuna. Both cooked to order.
The waiter was very attentive and the chef came out to ask how we enjoyed the food.
We both recommend and will return!!!!

We've been to Maria Bonita for a late lunch on our last day in La Fortuna. It is not on the busy main street, so I would consider it one of the hidden gems of the village :) We had churrasco there, very tasty grilled meat served in a nicely done gourmet-style dish but definitely not in a gourmet-style size -which is a big plus- :) While we were waiting our grill to be ready, they brought us small treats and snacks, all on the house. I would definitely recommend it, especially for meat lovers.

This place was the first one on our short list to visit during our stay in Costa Rica. Danilo and his crew were wonderfully friendly and served up some delicious food. Be sure to stop here at least once. We ate here twice and it was excellent both times.

Delicious steak and very personal service! Not fancy location, but best meal of our trip so far. It was recommended by a local.
