Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Our last day in Monteverde, we had lunch here. It was excellent! My wife said it was the best burrito she has ever had.

“fine little place with cheery service”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

The food is reasonably good for a low price, kind of a different little soda. The cooks (that's all you get there..cooks who do it all) are fun and really forgiving of my bad Spanish attempts.

“Delicious take out”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Delicious and filling - one of the best take-outs in Santa Elena. My only complaint is that they were closed for a day or two doing inventory. I would have ate thee more often

“Outstanding”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Based on tripadvisor reviews I was looking forward to this restaurant most on my seven night journey and it didn't disappoint. It's a small taco shack but the taco's are amazing. The pulled pork were the best, but the salsas, guac, basically everything was packed full of flavor. You really can't go wrong here. There is a hostel next door that sells beer and allows you to chill on their porch, so order your food, get a beer, pick a spot, and be ready to pig out. A must if you're in Monteverde.

“Very good food”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Delicious tacos and burritos, what's not to like? The prices are a bit better than other places we visited. One minor complaint is that the service is a bit slow, but they prepare your food after it's ordered.
