“12 km west of Nicoya, road to Nosara”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Good food, good portion size, fair prices for food. Chalupa was very good. Caasado with fish was also good. Refrescoes were expensive, but freshly made and good.

“A Party to Remember”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 via mobile

The original owner, Senaida, has returned, with a vengeance! We asked her to put on a party for a girl in our village, who was about to celebrate her 12th birthday. This she did with the utmost of ease and professionalism, decorations, food, cake, and all! Nothing could be faulted, it was a perfect afternoon.

“The best rest when going to Samara”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Outstanding little rest. Food was amazingly delicious and its service was beyond compare. Run by a local lady who is super fun. The best choice to stop before getting to Samara.

“Great food and good prices”
Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

I have eaten at this restaurant at least 6 times. I have never been disappointed. Shrimp scampi, big burger and fries, steak with grilled onions, chicken & rice (arroz con pollo)... It was all great. Gringos don't have a problem getting something the like. If you're not sure, get the arroz con pollo! Bring your own bottle of beer or wine, they don't have a license to sell it.

“Presentation at its Best”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Breakfast here was a delightful experience, on a beatiful day. All around is the rural area of Caimitalito, with birdsong and stuning views - a real relaxing holiday feeling, to chill-out by.

The presentation of the food was excellent, on large square plates - china, not plastic - expertly arranged, and what's more delicious, flavourful, and filling. The refresco was perfection, and the coffees huge, and top quality.

These are new owners, from El Salvador, who have continued the excellent reputation, earned by their predecessors. Many nick-nacks and rural curios adorn the walls, and ceiling, adding interest and talking points.
