Resturant Suggestions


We will be in La Fortuna for 3 nights and 4 days.

Can you give me some suggestions on resturants to go to? I'm traveling with a 4 year old so I'm not looking for anything fancy.

So many options in La Fortuna. :-) One of our favorites is the Pollo Familia across the street from Musmanni bakery (if you go to Don Rufino's, cross the street in the direction of the gas station and keep walking to the next corner). This place has some of the best chicken around and you can't beat the prices. Also, pick something up at Musmanni while you're there, fresh bread or pastries. Don Rufino's has excellent food but I'm not sure what the children's menu is like (if they have one) so this could get expensive but again....love their food! Another favorite is La Choza de Laurel (on the main road near Burger King)-they have an extensive menu, just about anything you're looking for they have.

If you have any questions about Fortuna feel free to e-mail me and I'll be happy to help! :-)

I like the Lava Lounge-good sushi, cocktails, lively bar at night.
