Fodor's Expert Review La Choza de Laurel

$$ Arenal and La Fortuna Costa Rican
The aroma 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.

The menu is overwhelmingly large—as are portions—ranging from pastas and burgers to soups and salads.
