Within yards of our room at the El Establo Resort, we found a quiet and lovely restaurant in Monteverde Costa Rica! Excellent service and menu only a three minute stroll from our room within a beautiful eco preserve! Thank you for the treat!

Hello, thank you very much for your comment.

However we think that you made a mistake of restaurant to do the valuation, because we are located in La Fortuna, San Carlos in front of the Arenal Volcano and not in Monteverde.

Best Regards,
Gerardo Pérez H

Breakfast had a good variety. However, the lunch and dinner was not good at all and we tried several meals over a few days. It was also very expensive with unfriendly staff.
It was very clean with a lovely view.

Staff was excellent, drinks were delicious. We weren't crazy about the Sushi we tried but everything else was delicious.
