This place is amazing, portions are huge, food is full of flavour. Service is friendly and are happy to answer any questions. If we were in the area longer we would have certainly gone back! You could easily miss this as it's above a shop.

Stopped for lunch while touring with Monkey Tour Costa Rica. Surprisingly good food even though the group was about 16 people and the price was reasonable. It is upstairs and hence not suitable for people with disabilities

I loved this little restaurant on a second floor above the fantastic Jiminez Bakery. We liked the menu, so up the narrow stairway we went...at the top, we found a bright and cheerful restaurant with a white cathedral ceiling painted with tropical flowers and vines....More

Super nice people the food was exceptional. Little pricy but it was a good treat. We recommend this restaurant it if you need a break from the sodas all around which are typically good.
