Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

The food is good and the servings are generous at this small café just outside La Fortuna. Go for the steak, or if you're in the mood for something more basic, try the casado, heaped with chicken, beef, or fish; rice; beans; fried egg; fried plantain; and cabbage salad. Stroll through the small orchid and butterfly garden next door ($7) after you're through.
