Food was good - not gourmet. OK for a quick and casual dinner. Angus beef burger was very good at a reasonable price. Limited selection of wines which were good value. Limited English speaking. Staff were efficient, polite and friendly. Chef is on the ball! On street parking close to restaurant.

Great service and delicious food. The plato ejecutivo is big and it includes a good size fresco. It is quiet, clean, and polite waitresses and chef.

Not bad. Decent food but nothing spectacular. A bit pricey perhaps. But certainly OK for a lunch or quick dinner.

Very good & convenient location in the centre of Grecia, cosy atmosphere. We ordered fish and big burger with lemonades and the platters and drinks were very good and tasty. The waiters were very polite and spoke sufficient English. It took a bit of time for food to arrive but we treated it as a sign of it being freshly... More

Included rice, beans, salad (with asparagus!), "natural" drink (mora), and plantains.for 2900 colones! Everything was fresh (well, the asparagus was canned) and nicely presented and there was plenty of it. The staff and the owners speak English... More

This small restaurant has extremely good Costa Rican food. The service was great, but they had no change for a 10mil colone and after waiting for 30 minutes we dug up the correct change.
