Great place if you're looking for a taste of the average costa rican cuisine. Prices are really good and service is attentive and kind. You can tell the food is made with dedication and care, with amazing flavors.

We had a lovely meal here. The food was wonderful, they catered for my fussy son without complaint and the staff were super friendly. Covid protocols were robust.

It almost felt like soul food. We a family of 4 with 2 teenage boys had one of the best foods in Costa Rica here at Restaurante Tierra Mía. Their service was excellent but food was too good. I wish I could eat lunch and...dinner everyday. We had the Yummy Shrimp Ceviche, Amazing Chicken Soup and those were just the starters. Restaurante Tierra Mía should be La Fortuna's one of the top things to do.More

We had a great server, Juan, who gave good advice about what to order off the menu and was extremely responsive. The food was really good! Properly seasoned and nicely portioned. My wife had the Tierra Mia salad (loved it) and the veggie quesadilla. I...had a steak with a chimichurri sauce that was to die for.More

TripAdvisor comes through again! Had lunch here while staying in near La Fortuna for three nights. Loved the flavors of each dish and drink they brought out to us. The ceviche was one of the most flavorable we had all week and the two-shrimp dishes...we ordered for our mains were both delicious. But the best was the Caipitico cocktails we enjoyed! They were SO incredibly refreshing on a hot day! The staff took EXCELLENT care of us with great recommendations, conversation, and making sure that two Yankees who were sweltering in the heat were as comfortable as possible. Would go back in an instant!More

We’ve been in Costa Rica for one month now and this is the best meal we’ve had. The menu had an amazing variety of options and everything we ordered (apps, salads, meals, kids meals and drinks) were delicious. This was the first restaurant where everyone...cleaned their plate. The service was impeccable and unlike most Costa Rican restaurants where you must wait to order, receive your food, etc. This is a must visit if in the Arenal/Fortuna area.More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local tour guide, we took her advice and were not disappointed. Our group of 10 ordered a large array of appetizers and entrees, every dish served was exceptional in taste and presentation. The service was excellent, the...atmosphere very upbeat and friendly, we all concluded it was worth the visit and we would all eat here againMore

Terra Mia is a small unassuming restaurant in a side street off the main road. We were glad to have found this place through Trip Advisor! The service was a little slow but the waiter was very kind. Presentation was well done and the food...was delicious, particularly my pargo rojo with shrimp and my daughter’s chicken pasta. Eat here, you won’t regret it!More

I am not exaggerating when I say this is the best food we have ever eaten. Every ingredient was incredibly fresh and flavorful. The presentation of all dishes was beautiful. Our only regret was that we didn't discover it sooner because we would have eaten...there 10 more times before returning home. And on top of the amazing food, the waiters and staff were as kind and attentive as can be. If you don't eat here you are missing out on the best meals of your life!More

Don't recall an online menu. My daughter is picky and she had plain white rice.
