Very good meal. Attractive restaurant. Wide variety of food on the menu from burgers to tilapia with avocado sauce (which was excellent). Amazing desserts - tres leches cake, chocolate brownie & milkshake were all fantastic!

It serves great burgers at a good price in a building which is artfully decorated. We went at lunch time and it had a few people but not too busy. Lots of seating including a balcony, bar style with bar stools to look out over...More

We ordered the tenderloin and chicken and we enjoyed both entrees. We were grateful the waiter spoke English. Service was good, they were busy and we didn't wait long. It's located in the city next to other interesting things.

After a week of chicken rice and beans we were ready for beef burgers. They were excellent in every way. Highly recommend this place.

Service was great and I’d like to start with this. The place itself (the new one) is nice and clean with a very lovely view. Food is good, nothing out of the ordinary but pretty good. Completely recommended.

Went with a few friends. Some of the food was quite nice but most of us got ridiculously small portions. Some of the food was also cold and the steak was dry. Wouldn’t recommend if you want to leave full

This place really is a cute and beautiful little spot! The butterfly theme really makes this place. Outside there is a water front which is very beautiful and allows you to see more of Monteverde. There was live entertainment that we sat close to that...More

I think with may casada, you can as them to make it vegan by ordering the vegetarian,but asking for no cheese, no eggs and to replace it with something like avocado or more beans or more plantain.

Not sure, but they seemed quite friendly and the kitchen willing to customise a meal or provide a variation. There are enough restaurants around though to drop in and ask
