Ranked #46 of 114 Restaurants in Monteverde
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 February 2018 via mobile

A little off the beaten path and well worth a visit. Gracious and friendly chef/owner who spent time with us and made the experience just that much better. Though the menu is simply rice and ceviche dishes the variety in the dishes is abundant. The portions are large and the food is flavourful. The space is simple yet sexy and modern in design. Highly recommended

Found out about this place from a local guide and it exceeded all expectations. This cute family restaurant was the best meal in Costa Rica I had on the entire trip. You will not be able to leave the place feeling hungry. THE FOOD IS INCREDIBLE!!! From the moment we walked through the doors we felt like family. I wish this place was in my hometown.

We went by recommendation by a local Guide and were amazed. This unassuming place on the bottom floor of the town mall, only houses about 5 tables and the decor is minimal, but the food and the service is 5 star all the way. They have 6 types of ceviche, all better than the next. Better than any ceviche in Peru or Brazil. They also have amazing rice dishes that have more seafood than rice, all great flavour combinations. I think the chef is the owner and came out to serve us, friendly, and so gracious. The food is top notch and the prices way better then the tourist traps on Main Street. Without reservations recommend going!

A small restaurant located in downtown Santa Elena, Monteverde
On the first floor of the mall you’ll find this magnificent restaurant which specializes on seafood. The chef Waldir is a very nice person and really passionate for his job.
While you enjoy natural drinks you can observe from your seat your food being prepared.
Good portions of food and accesible prices, plus a very good service; one of my favorite restaurants to visit, when traveling to Monteverde.
Overall a great place to have an enjoyable experience.

Stumbled on this unassuming location searching for food late one night in Santa Elena. They specialize in ceviche but have rice options as well. Delicious food and fresh tasty juices and on top of that wonderful service. The kitchen is exposed and you can see the thought and effort the chef puts into his dishes.
