Good food, reasonable pricing, and the young waiter was fantastic and attentive. We have the mixed plate for two, and as you can see, you get a little bit of everything!! **credit cards and cash excepted, causal atmosphere, and music on Saturdays.

A few friends and I recently visited the La Fortuna area and went to this restaurant on our last night in the area, pulled in just on a whim and we were not disappointed!! Although markedly more expensive than the other restaurants in the area,...this was the best service we received on our trip. The decor in this restaurant is adorable and very photo worthy (loved the umbrella ceiling!!!) They were friendly and attentive, the food was fantastic, and they even gave us flan for dessert on the house!More

We enjoyed authentic Costa Rica food! The outdoor was a great vibe. We started off with margaritas and guacamole and chips. I got the classic Casado with chicken. And my husband got a whole fish. Both very delicious!

My adult girls and I had our first nights dinner here recommended by our homeaway host. It was very over priced for the quality compared to other food we have had now since at the end of our stay in costa rica. There are many...choices in La Fortuna.i am a foodie and I would not recommend for the price versus the quality. Sorry but just being honest.More

This was an excellent choice. We loved the service, the food and the place. They even made a especial meal -lactose-free- for me! It was delicious. Great place to eat in La Fortuna.

Had a lovely meal at Casa Fortuna - service was excellent from a young gentleman called Ronaldo - he was a credit to the restaurant! The cocktails were great and the food was made up of large portions. The decor is quirky - umbrellas on...the ceiling and light up bicycles! Would highly recommend for a friendly and comfortable atmosphere.More
