If you plan to visit Cartago, do not miss the opportunity to get the best “tortilla de queso con extra queso” in town. Casados, Olla de Carne and juices are amazing and without forgetting to mention the great personnel and customer service. Please visit them, you won’t regret.

So I am a costarrican and I love our food, therefore I spent time going places and trying food and this is on the top.
Along the trip to get there you'll have a lot of places to visit and see so don't forget your camera.
Make sure you bring some sour-cream back home as its the best.
I am not sure they speak English but the menus are in English too.

I remember eating at this very typical restaurant since its early days in the 1960's. Famous for its cheese tortillas, bean soup and "olla de carne" (traditional soup with lots of different vegetables and meat), I just recently ate there and was pleasantly surprised by the good service and quality of the food.

We stop on the way to Turrialba with a group of 15. The service was fast (the menu only in Spanish), and the food was good, everybody enjoyed. The only inconvenient, is that they didn't have the desserts on the menu
