Indomitable Gastronomy LA FONDA 506 · WEDNESDAY, MAY 22, 2019 In life and in the kitchen there are rules, but that does not mean that we are going to follow them all the time. Our Latin heritage asks us to express ourselves with our spoon, that we are not afraid of change, nor of new flavors. Why do not we go grilling, cutting, mixing or frying our way if that is what makes our kitchen unique? This is our story, we have our food every day and we will tell it our way. La Fonda 506 Indomitable gastronomy.

Seriously there is some really good food in La Fortuna and in Costa Rica. Fonda 506 was our favorite and for good reasons. The "Soda" or local restaurants offer regional cuisine for cheap prices. Fonda 506 offers the same low prices with exceptional quality. We...stoped in for a light meal, chifrijo, a rice and bean dish with pork chicharrones pico de gallo and chips. Very good and under 5 bucks. We returned later for dinner and ordered a Casado plate for dinner. I ordered the beef and was surprised to find that it was a full steak covered in sautéed onions and cooked perfectly. Casado comes with a meat, rice, beans, plantains, and salad. The cost was around 8 bucks. The restaurant is on the corner behind the town square and was well worth visiting. The chef takes great pride in his preparation. We loved this restaurant.More

La Fonda was one of our favorite eating spots. It’s a very casual atmosphere however the food was delicious and we had the best cocktail. The price point it’s pretty affordable compare to the hotel restaurant. Also I had a freshly made pineapple juice that...was definitely the best I had in my entire trip and the service was quick and top notch. We got there 1hr before they open and because we had a tour schedule and we were short on time they let us in early. Thank you la Fonda so much 🙏🏼🇨🇷More

We strolled through the center, heard music and followed the music to La Fonda 506. Kind and professional service. Good and inexpensive. We were already after dinner, so we sat down for a drink and heard some good Latin music. A young singer sang beautifully...and made us enjoy the evening. RecommendedMore

Stumbled upon this place while on vacation with my husband and his family because they were one of the few restaurants in downtown La Fortuna open late. The service was amazing, food was great, and great vibes. To boot, there was live music going on...when we got there!!! Ordered many frozen cocktails all of which were great. Pineapple shrimp salad came served in an actual pineapple (!) and the burgers were great.More
