I went there for a friend's birthday. We made reservations and they sat us on the second floor... I know we were a large party (about 15 people) and the restaurant was a bit packed (first floor was for walk ins and the second floor was divided between us a a bunch of children... Service was slow (it took them... More

The sandwich was amazing. But the location and ambience was horrible. We went for lunch and it must've been the hour of loud trucks going past since its on a busy street, so that was super loud, and in the upstairs they had loud bass music going, so loud that 5 min into being there we had to change our...

Sorry, but the food at this restaurant was okay but not great. The sandwiches had tons of pesto on them making them bitter and soggy. The restaurant needs a good cleaning - the upholstered cushions need washed or replaced. The bathroom was clean! The service was friendly but maybe a bit slow considering there were only a couple other parties... More

Very relaxed and chill environment with an array of wine and beer selections you'll be hard to find elsewhere in Alajuela. Would highly recommend.

Located quite close to the center of Alajuela. The service was very friendly and attentive. The Antipasti (Different vegetables fried in oil served with two sauces) was great. The spaghetti and the salad, I don`t remember the names anymore, were very good as well. We sat in the second floor which I enjoyed.

How utterly amazing would a pita sandwich have to be to warrant a wait of more than an hour from the time the order was placed? Well, while certainly tastey, nothing the five of us ordered was worth an entire evening of looking to see if our food was coming up the stairs. As a longtime Guanacaste resident, my infrequent...

It has a good variety of food, even for vegetarians. The potatoes, served as side dish, are delicious.

Starting by the names of their dishes (specially sandwich, wraps) the experience is something out of the ordinary. The lack of good service is covered by the quality of the food.
