Lovely setting for a drink over lunch after the walk up to the Montezuma Falls. Great beer choice and food was really good. One of the best place we ate at in Costa Rica. Lovely staff too.

We love this place for the butterflies of course, but the real gem here is the restaurant and the craft beer. Come here for lunch or dinner. You won't be disappointed.

Had excellent service from Douglas and the brewmaster is a fellow Washingtonian. The butterfly exhibit is informative; from caterpillar to butterfly. Also got to learn a little about scorpions. We took the trail next to the Mariposario to the waterfalls.
