As a health conscious person - this was right up my street. Try the Namaste Rolls or the Organic Rainbow Salad. Service really great and friendly. They play a movie almost every night too which is great for the long Costa Rican evenings.

Relaxing quiet outside courtyard, or more lively street side indoor seating. We stopped in several times for lunches and smoothies. The young staff are super friendly and professional. We loved the Ceviche Tico with Patocones-so yummy!

The most friendly staff ever! Large, delicious, included breakfasts! Great menu and drinks! Beautiful garden to dine in! The only downs were that the wifi was slow in the room and our room didn't have a window. The ac worked great though!
