“Excellent in every way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

In 3 weeks, this was the best ambiance,food and service experience we had in Costa Rica. The ambiance is delightful as the restaurant is in a 120 year old building which has a display of the original structure which is typical of the era. It has a beautiful courtyard with a giant almond tree that we sat under. We had excellent ceviche and the best casado, a typical Costa Rican dish. Service was the best of our trip and although the prices may seem a little high on the menu, keep in mind that they include the 13% tax and 10% service. A memorable way to end our trip.

“Nice restaurant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

The restaurant is located in an old house, meaning it has an internal patio, which is good for the Liberian hot afternoons. They have a nice menu with great steaks! The menu is no different from most restaurants in town, but it is still good. The prices are a little bit high for a budget dinner, but it is definitely a nice option to go on a night out with the significant other.
The only problem I saw was the location of the restrooms. When it rains (and believe me, it pours cats and dogs during the rainy season in Costa Rica) people can easily get wet because the restrooms are located on a side of the restaurant, and there is a little roof that doesn't cover you during windy storms. They also didn't have a light out of the restroom, so you can't look at yourself while washing your hands (not a problem during daytime, but weird at nighttime).

“Hang out in the garden and watch music videos with a cold beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013 via mobile

Our favourite is the mixed barbecue platter for the whole family. Nice garden and friendly staff. Old songs on the giant screen and a Guanacaste tree as table.
