“Real down home cooking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2013

After a long day on the road, we pulled into Sámara in the early evening. After checking into our hotel, we got back into the car and went downtown to look for a place to eat. The main street has many dining options to choose from, but we were looking for an authentic Costa Rican place to eat, relax and enjoy some quiet time. We saw Las Brasas (Spanish/International cuisine), made a right onto a "u-shaped" side street and directly in front of us was Meil's. We parked the car, walked in and were warmly greeted by both Ana and David. It was like we were family coming home for a visit. Wonderful and friendly service, delicious food and a relaxed atmosphere made for an entertaining evening. If you visit Sámara, please stop in and say hello...you won't be disappointed. The menu is simple and easy, the food is delicious and plentiful. So with that, LJ ordered the Seafood Casado (grilled freshly caught fish, rice, potatoes, veggies, salad and black beans) while I had the Chicken Casado (stewed chicken, rice, potatoes, veggies, salad and black beans). Oh soooo good!!!
