Rotten oranges with lot of water is the nowdays definition for Natural orange juice. Pay 1 for 2 breakfasts and promotion only valid for 2 type of dishes. Honestly don't expect so much. If you're a tourist there are better places with natural flavors.More

This is a decent little alternative to the traditional costa Rican soda restaurants. The food is fresh and the selection reasonable. The building is very nice and family friendly. We've been eating here for years and can recommend with confidence

Very nice concept with casual dining to have fresh fish. You can enjoy a variety of fish prepare in different sauces and prepare your tacos with a lot of choices from the salad bar. Clean, fresh and not expensive. Enjoy
