Definitely one of the best restaurants I have been in Costa Rica by far! For vegetarians, I would recommend the cauliflower ribs and the chocolate mousse.

We had both dinner and lunch at the restaurant and appreciated its dishes (we tried fish mainly) as well as the usual politeness of Costa Rican staff. Well located, easy to find.

Excellent upscale restaurant in the heart of La Fortuna. A must choice if you’re looking for fine cuisine in a relaxed environment. Prices are reasonable. For starter I had the plantain and for main dish the octopus, which was tender and juicy.
