This Restaurant/ BnB is a Diamond at second glance! The food is good, Prices are fine and the rooms are okay too (mosquito nets for the windows as a suggestion). But the real Highlight is the view from the window at the back! Just make yourself comfortable and wait for the birds!! Beautiful, even a hummingbird, a squirrel and Jonathan even showed us an amadillo a little bit further away!

To tell you the truth, I checked out many restaurants in Monteverde -- many had food as good as El Venado, but not at the prices! And the views from the large window
are excellent.
