“great view, ok food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

The Turrialtico lodge is located 8 km away from Turrialba town center, at a hill overlooking the valley. The place offers great views. The rooms are clean but the walls and floors are very tin so basically there is no real privacy :) The restaurant offers local and international cuisine + good selection of wines.

“Turrialtico Restaurant with a great view of Turrialba”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2013

This restaurant has one of the best of views of Turrialba. It's near "Marcia's Paradise" and just off the road from Turrialba to Siquirres (Hwy 10). Prices are reasonable and they have some antiques to look at while you wait for your meal.

“Good restaurant, but great location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2012

The food at this restaurant was good. Nothing extraordinary per se. The service was good. We were the only people at the restaurant that night so I think we were guaranteed to be served well. Its definitely not a 5 star restaurant but good food at a good price, together with an unbelievable view of Turrialba makes it worth a visit there.

One thing that i found a little unsettling was a dog in the dining area when we got there. It was a very quiet night but I still found that a bit strange for a restaurant, coming from someone accustomed to North American standards for eating establishments. i don't know if this is acceptable is CR. But the dog disappeared as soon as we entered so it wasnt a problem.
