I ate here as part of a tour. The lunch was a buffet that had many different choices of meat and also vegetables. In addition to the tastiness of the food, it overlooks a beautiful lake that provides an idyllic location to eat.

We ate lunch here as part of a tour. The food was awesome; so much to choose from! We ate ENTIRELY too much. We topped off lunch with a cup of coffee made in the traditional Costa Rican manner using a chorreador. It was very smooth and tasted great. The restaurant is on the grounds of a coffee plantation and in the shores of a local lake, so you get beautiful views along with a great meal. Highly recommended.

We stopped here when we went to Costa Rica in March to visit friends that live there. The food was good and there was a nice variety (we all got the buffet). The view while dining was great.

We stumbled across this place on our trip around The Valley and we were so happy we did! The food was fantastic and reasonably priced! The views were fantastic and we were able to see toucans and other types of birds. Highly recommended- even if it's just for a fantastic cup of coffee!

We were in a tour group so our tour director gave us three choices while on the bus and then phoned in our order to that it would be ready for us. Very efficient and worked well. Food was very good but not what I was expecting. The dish had the same name as in Canada but was very different. You might ask for an explanation of what the dish is. Still, it was all part of the cultural experience. We had some some sunshine while we were there and that was a treat because the location is lovely. Waiters were fast and responsive. A very lovely part of our trip.
