“Good healthy option”
Review of Restaurante Shakti

Although this place isn't strictly vegetarian, there are lots of options on the menu that are without meat. Freshly prepared, good flavours, well presented.
Seems to be very popular with the locals - which is always a good sign.
Also, it's at the cheaper end of the budget scale

A real nice treat of healthy food options for both vegans and carnivores.
Large servings and a very small hit to the wallet.
Salads were the best in Costa Rica! Try the fresh bread too.

Horrible, tasteless food, dirty place, and right on the train tracks which makes for a noisy, earth rattling experience. For what you get (maybe-maybe not organic food, from questionable sources made with the hygiene standard set to zero) it is quite pricey.

Also the staff speak little to no English. They understand (vaguely); yes, no, and when you point to whatever it is you want on the sticky and gross menus. And of course, Spanish. My key vocab in the latter is the only thing that insured my meal was gluten free and vegan.

After our meal we all felt weird at the stomach. It's places like this that give a bad name or healthy food.

Do not go to this dodgy place if you value your life. :)

Es muy lamentable el comentario realizado el 04 de enero del 2014. No estamos seguros que real se refiera a una visita a nuestro local. Por cuanto ha estado fuera de servicio por vacaciones durante dos semanas y no ofrecemos cena, cerramos a las 7 pm. Ademas nuestro local se caracteriza por el aseo y limpieza . Los precios son muy razonables y la comida esta preparada de forma sana y con mucho esmero. Lamentamos mucho la experiencia descrita anteriormente. Siempre trabajamos en dar una excelente opcion de comida a un muy buen precio.
