We had the volcano rice, chicken fajitas, and Red Snapper, which was a special that night. The restaurant was recommended by a local woman who said the food was authentic Costa Rican.

It was very good and the staff was very friendly and accommodating!

We went here based on a recommendation for dinner our first night in town. Like most places, it was an open air restaurant with delightful smells coming from the kitchen. We chose typical tico food and were not disappointed. There is a cigar/coffee shop adjacent to the restaurant. Sergio works there and was great to speak with! He is an expert on cigars if you plan to buy for yourself or a friend. He also knows a lot about the area if you have questions.

Food was okay, can probably get the same quality of food elsewhere for cheaper. More touristy now than actual authentic food.

We had dinner at La Choza. Chose it because we saw the chickens roasting over the wood fire earlier in the day. The restaurant wasn't crowded when we went. Our food came out amazingly quick, especially compared to other restaurants we had been to so far. We figured including travel time from our hotel (less than 10 mins by car), we were done in less than an hour. 2 got the roast chicken which they enjoyed. 1 got the Lomito which had been recommended by another reviewer and it was tasty, just the vegetables on the shish kabob were essentially still raw. Service wasn't the friendliest, but adequate. Price was also good.

Ate lunch here w/family of four. Was surprised that our waitress did not smile the whole time she waited on us (since normally people in CR are so friendly and nice), restaurant was not crowded and we were communicating pretty well in spanish so not sure what her deal was. Guacamole was not very flavorful. Lunches were blah...I had some sort of chicken dish and I have no idea what the cut of chicken was...I was not expecting chicken breast at a local place, but it was even thigh, it was only the tendony chewy edge parts you normally discard when preparing chicken. I could not eat more than a few bites...Son had burger that didn't taste right (and he's not fussy). Husband had seafood soup that was not good and he will eat ANYTHING. Would not recommend or go back.
