Thanks to Delta (jerks), we stayed the night in Alejuela. Took an Uber ride to this restaurant as they boasted about local Costa Rican beers. Our waiter, Ronald (whom I do not believe was the owner), was awesome. Cool guy who spoke English as my...More

The food is nothing to rave about, but it is tasty, filling, and well priced. We visited due to the beer selection, which was the best around. The restaurant was a short trek from our airport hotel on the edge of Alajuela. Ronald was fantastic...More

This restaurant had so many beer and craft beer choices . The waiter Ronald was great. The food was very good and good sized portions. I thought the prices were high but I am seeing high food prices every where we go here

A place located in the Alajuela town center, good beer choices, the main dishes are not expensive but very small, and you will find better options in Alajuela.

Is this restaurant still open? Does anyone know if the shuttle bus from the Hampton Inn Airport will go there? Is it a good idea to take a taxi and get one on return?
