The smell of rotisserie chicken, porterhouse steak, and fresh fish bathed in garlic attracts passersby to this open-air restaurant a short walk from the center of town. Wooden picnic tables and a cigar shop storefront replicate an old Costa Rican village, adding a cultural touch to your meal. The menu is overwhelmingly large, ranging from pastas and sandwiches to soups and salads. Stick with local favorites like the black-bean soup with homemade tortillas or the Choza Plate with chicken, rice, beans, chayote, corn, salad, and plantains. For dessert, banana splits are served in half a pineapple so you can eat the bowl.
