“Delicous!”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

The ingredients were fresh, all local! The flavors were distinctive. The chef and waiter very friendly. The location is central but not in the glare. You will not regret eating here!

“Wonderful restaurant to change from typical casados”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Found that restaurant by chance, looked at the menu and decided to try it. We arrived early so had all the attention of the waiter in a cosy and quiet place. We have even been allowed to smoke on the terrace while drinking our fresh cocktails (smoking is prohibited almost everywhere in Costa Rica). Food was tasty and very well presented. It is a little expensive compared to Sabor Tico in Santa Elena as well but it feels good after a day in a Parc sweating and eating bread and cheese !

“A lovely experience and ambiance”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We've been to Costa Rica on many occasions. However, we've never been to Monteverde. David Porras' concept is refreshing.

We had the Roasted Mango and Heart of Palm salads. They were delicious and fresh. For the main dish: Beefsteak Manchego and the Pork Ribs. The presentation and taste were excellent...and so "suave"! For dessert, David's "abuelita's" rice pudding.

All in all, this was a lovely experience, and we enjoyed the ambiance. I've read the reviews that expressed displeasure with the noise of the "dumb waiter"; however, I didn't bother us. Frankly, I thought it was kind of cool; but if it were really busy, then perhaps not.

Also, I believe, with time (they had only been open for 4 months) their wine list and wine by the glass selection will improve to include Italian selections.

In short--to David and staff--thank you. Good luck...we'll be back.

“Unexpevted top-notch dinner in Monteverde”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We came to this place with average expectations to have dinner. We were amazed by how delicious and well presented the dishes were. This is a restaurant that is well in line with some of our favorite restaurants we've ever been to. We had the chance to spend a good time with the chef who was very friendly and told us about his story and projects. When he told us about his background we could connect the dots as to why the food was so good. We went to other places also recommended in Trip Advisor. This was by far the best of all of them. I wish all the success to thos place.
