Arenal, Monteverde, and the Northern Lowlands Restaurants

La Choza de Laurel

  • Costa Rican

Fodor's Review

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.
