Reviewed 29 May 2013

It is surprisingly very difficult to be vegan in this area, but Los Trucos went out of their way to make us delicious vegan burritos stuffed with beans and veggies. Not only was it great and filling, they never once made us feel bad for eating off-menu.

We ate here 3 of the 5 nights during our stay in Uvita!
The ceviche, calamari, fish, chicken, pasta were all very good with great presentation.
Beautifully decorated restaurant, friendly service and reasonable prices kept us coming back.
Definitely worth it if you are visiting.

TRIP ADVISOR: Please change name of restaurant or contact the owner!!!

This cute little place serves very very good food. It doesn't look like much as you whiz by on the highway, but be sure to stop. You'll recognize it because it is built from beautiful logs (troncos, in spanish, hence the name).

The food here is mostly typical Costa Rican fare, but with lots of other options thrown in. The Shrimp Diavolo is fantastic, as is the Shrimp Ceviche and the Arroz con Camaron. Guess I must like shrimp!!! The owner and wait staff (Brian) are so incredibly friendly. The owner (sorry, can't remember his name) speaks perfectly good English, having spent time in the restaurant business in New Jersey, like most Ticos who go to the States. The food is very good and presentation is amazing. Please don't miss this restaurant on your trip to our beautiful Costa Ballena. Oh, and the margaritas are fantastic!
