“Needs to improve a few things”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is nice, spacious and clean, but the food was so so and the service was really bad. I understand Tico Time and do not like feeling rushed but not ignored either. Only served one cup of coffee and once the entrees were out the waitress disappeared into the kitchen never to be seen again.....had to walk in the kitchen to get my check.

“Authentic Costa Rican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

True CR restaurant with really friendly owner, good fish, a TV if you want to watch the football and very good value. The owner couldn't have been more helpful.
