Lovely lunch - stopped on a road trip to Arenal. The menu was surprisingly wide and our choices were delicious. A mix of local clientele and tourists and the service to all was amazing.

We visited during the weekday. It was a nice place and the food was great. It’s a great place to eat as it’s an open air restaurant.

We didn't realize that the restaurant was actually a place where all the local cowboys go to eat after the rodeo on the weekends! We toured the stables while waiting for our food. Beautiful horses! Food was above average, both meat entrees were cooked as...requested. Definitely a bit off the beaten path and not touristy. That was the best part! Also, very affordable for what you get!More

This is a nice restaurant on the grounds of the stables. We had a good meal and enjoyed walking through the stables afterwards and seeing the horses. We also played a game of pool. We would recommend this off the beaten track option, especially for...those staying at the Tree Houses hotel.More

The service here was great and they brought chips before the meal and rice pudding after lunch the first day. The always brought out the kids dinners ahead of ours, which was great! That's something we noticed here was the thoughtfulness. The strawberry daiquiris were...great. They have the cutest dogs here too. They also have a kids play area and horses the kids can see. And they have WiFi. We've found having the Internet handy had been nice to help us communicate in Spanish.More

Our driver, Xinia, brought us to this restaurant after an exhilarating day of treetop trekking because we had been talking about all of the beautiful horses we had seen in the area. When we arrived they allowed us to wander into the stables to admire...the gorgeous animals and when we came out the restaurant staff brought us delicious margaritas while our children were treated to a ride in a donkey cart! The food was delicious and my daughter's steak was one of the best we've ever tasted! The service was incredible and they made us feel right at home. One of the most memorable meals of our whole vacation. Gracias!More
