Excellent Argentinian fare with an at home type atmosphere. The guacamole, pizza and steaks were excellent. We ended up eating here twice on our trip. If you get the BBQ plater, this may feed up to four people.

I don't think it would be an exaggeration to say that this was one of my favorite experiences at a restaurant. Que Quilombo is adorable - just a few tables set on a porch - and Roberto and Helen are so kind. We had the pizza every time we went because it was so good. Roberto cooks it on the grill with coals on top, so you get a different flavor than pizza in the states. Plus, he is really generous with the wine! 2500 colones ($5) for a glass filled to the top. I would highly recommend Que Quilombo to anyone visiting the area!

Very nice ambiance in this garden restaurant. Argentine Parilla chef Roberto does a fantastic job of grilling steak, chicken(with the mushroom sauce is my favorite), and an amazing grilled pizza sets this restaurant apart for a nice homey eating experience. Roberto's wife Helen is very warm and sees to your every need. The waiter Diego is also very friendly and explains the menu in culinary detail. Everything is top quality, and this place is very convenient if you are staying in Cocles, but also only 3 kilometers from Puerto Viejo if you have a car, or about a $4 cab ride.

Truly enjoyed the dinner we had! The meat was very good (something hard to find in Costa Rica) Diego ,our waiter was awesome! I recommend the meat plate for 2 which technically fed 3-4 people, I don't recommend the meat well done even if that's your normal choice. The pizza was amazing baked on a charcoal grill. Mojito was also good.They mentioned that they had a Tango night the weekend before we were there, sounded like tons of fun. The owner lives on the second floor and the restaurant is on the first. Cute cozy home with a big yard. Very fun night! Be prepared for a bit of a wait, but it's so nice you don't even mind it.

Tucked away in a beautiful garden is this family run restaurant. We sat down and enjoyed watching the wildlife before ordering the chicken and mushroom (AMAZING) and a huge pizza. The pizza was massive and so fresh, it is easily covering us for lunch today. Good meat in Costa Rica is hard to find, the chicken and sauce were amazing. You can also see the food being cooked and it really is a great little location, I hope they put some pictures up on here to really show the quality. I'm heading back tomorrow for something new!
