My wife, her brother, her sister-in-law, and I were traveling from Nicaragua to San Jose and say the Pops Ice Cream store next to Cuenca and we had to stop. We were very hungry since we had not eaten much for breakfast in Nicaragua and were quite happy to see such a lovely restaurant next to a great ice cream... More

Too bad we were too full to go get ice cream. I'd started with a ceviche and then ordered a great baked fish. Open-air with a view to the river below.... More

Today we had lunch during our trip back to San Jose. Good ambiance, very friendly staff, but at least 2 out of 4,dishes did not really matched our taste. Signature dish with shrimps was not bad, but every dish with pollo was not tasteful. Cheeseburger was fine, French fries not.

First of all, thank you for visiting our restaurant. We hope that the natural environment and the overall atmosphere of the establishment make them have a good memory of our country.

We are a restaurant on Route 1, next to the river Aranjuez. We have a beautiful view of the river you can see from our terrace. We have outdoor tables on deck and in another area, which is farthest from the terrace. We have facilities for people with physical problems. Our menu is based on seafood and steaks. The structure is in fine woods. We have breakfast, lunch and dinner.
