We stopped here randomly and we stumbled on a wonderful choice. Great cuisine and service with a local vibe. I highly suggest it. We are from Atlanta, Georgia and we were pleased.

Disorganised service leading to long wait times to service an admittedly large group of 10. Food was average at best when it did come out and prices were high. There are good dining options in la Fortuna - this is not one of them.

Our whether Raul was kind and courteous. He was happy to make recommendations without being pushy. The food was simply delightful and exceptionally tasty. We return to dine with them several more occasions during our trip. I highly recommend the Ceviche and parrillada del rey

Worst dining experience ever. We had 5 people in a car and took a vote for Peruvian vs. Italian. I was the tie-breaker and chose Peruvian. Big mistake. Nothing went right. First, they sat us right next to the live musician, who pretty much spent...More

Not good value for money either. The Pulpo (Octopus) was rubbery. We decided to not stay for dinner after the disappointing appetizers.

We wanted to try something that's not tipical Costa Rican food, which we had a lot of in the past week. This Peruvian restaurant was good. We had the 2 for 1 ceviche special (sea bass), and was a good appetizer to start. Ceviche originated...More
