We ate here our first night in Santa Elena and it was good and tasty. Good value for the price. The owner was very helpful and friendly. They also have cabins for rent.

If you are looking for a casado where locals eat, head to Soda La Salvadita. It's a quiet place slightly out of town. We were the only non-locals in there.

Food is good value, portions of protein are fairly small, so if you are hungry see if you can pay for an extra piece. Authentic food at at a fair price, tasty enough. Fruit juice is a bit bland though. Decor is in line with the town - lots of paintings of wildlife. We were able to park right outside which was perfect as we were heading out of town straight after our visit and all our luggage was inside (not that the area is at all unsafe).

Friendly & fast service and free wifi.

Came for dinner and enjoyed so much that we came back for breakfast the next day for Gallo pinto. The owner is very friendly and the food fresh and tasty. Don’t skip the fresh juices- the pineapple was excellent!
