Great food. All is home made and very savory. 100% recommended. It’s just a short walk from Monteverde’s main square, but well worth. The food looks to be fresh made. The appetizers are really good. The ceviche and guacamole were delicious

The food was very good and yummy. For Asians, the rice is the closest to fried rice and will satisfy your palette if you are craving for rice with flavors. I will definitely return again.

Nice place to eat a typical food. No air conditioner and many bugs in the place but nice to meet local people.

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

Annie - Monte Verde ( Santa Elena) is not near any beachs but in the mountains. The closest beach would be at least a 4 hour drive. The roads in the area are mainly dirt and can be very rutty and pot holed. Also the roads in... More
