Fodor's Review

It's more about the setting than the food and service at this two-story restaurant built around a 60-year-old ficus tree on Santa Elena's main street. Branches shelter tables from the afternoon mist. The menu mixes pastas and seafood with Costa Rican cuisine; for a taste of everything, try the típico platter. Favorites include tilapia with mushroom sauce and fajitas. The service can be "leisurely" or "slow," depending on your perspective.
