Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited the smaller, more local one years ago. Came back to the newer one and had amazing traditional food. Favourite was the stew and the auntie's chicken I think it was called. Great service and views too

Delicious! Chicken is the best. I also had the empanadas and guacamole. All were fast, fresh, and Justin was a great server. We left full and happy.

We had an excellent experience here with great food and service. The Caribbean chicken with rice and beans was the best meal I’ve had in Costa Rica! And Justhin provided top notch service.

I am baffled by the glowing reviews. We had dinner here yesterday and there was nothing remarkable about it. The service was good, but the food was 'meh' and atmosphere was nothing special.

Dining at Sabor Tico in Monteverde, Costa Rica, was an unforgettable five-star experience that epitomized the essence of Costa Rican cuisine. The restaurant's ability to handle our large group with such grace and efficiency was impressive, ensuring that each of us felt personally attended to...and thoroughly satisfied. The culinary offerings at Sabor Tico were a true delight, featuring an array of dishes that were both authentic and bursting with flavor. The freshness of the ingredients was evident in every bite, especially in their signature casado, which was a symphony of perfectly balanced flavors, showcasing the best of local cooking traditions. The service, spearheaded by the remarkable Eric, was the highlight of our visit. His attentiveness, promptness, and deep understanding of the menu and Costa Rican culinary culture enriched our experience. Eric's recommendations were not only thoughtful but also tailored to our group's diverse tastes, leading us to savor each dish with great appreciation. Despite the challenge of accommodating a large group, the staff at Sabor Tico, under Eric’s skilled guidance, executed everything flawlessly. The service was not just efficient but also genuinely friendly, making us feel welcomed and valued throughout our meal. Sabor Tico stands out as a beacon of culinary excellence in Monteverde. The combination of delectable food, impeccable service, and the ability to make every guest feel special, particularly in large groups, renders it a must-visit destination. A heartfelt thanks to Eric and the entire team at Sabor Tico for providing such a memorable and delightful dining experience. Gracias! Cristina, Riverdale NYCMore

The prices are around $5-$8 per dish but comes with a lot of food. We found this place to be the best food for the price in Monteverde. If you check out the prices on their photos of the menu just divide the price by 568.5... More
