Lucky find along the way to Arenal national park. Great food that everyone in our party enjoyed. No one left hungry- best arroz con pollo yet! A visit by a Tucan and wild turkey were a plus.

We stopped by for some ceviche and guacamole. Delicious, fresh and not expensive. Nice outdoor, covered seating area. It's a bit out of town so not easy to find, but a lovely little spot.

We got to this place by recommendation from the guide who we just finished a volcano hike with, Cristian. We didn't want to go back to the hotel restaurant, and wanted to grab something good and authentic.
The place is very close to the Arenal Nat'l Park. We were the only ones there on Thursday night. My daughters fell in love with the owners' kitten, Linda and chased her, and held her and ate with her the entire dinner.
The English speaking waiter had an emergency and had to leave, so we had to communicate through the Google experience, but ended up with the best meal we had in Arenal/La Fortuna. My husband had a steak, a house specialty, which he said was as good or better than the ones he had in the better steakhouses in the US. I ordered a grilled chicken, which was simple and mouthwatering, and the kids had pasta with butter which was enough to feed a small daycare! And did I mention the guacamole?
The restaurant is a no frills, but the food, service, presentation and overall ambiance leaves you wanting to come back. And we did, for our last night. Same great experience. Would recommend this place wholeheartedly.

We stopped here after hiking at the Volcano National Park and had amazing service and terrific food! They bent over backwards to make sure we were happy and we would definitely recommend. The view was wonderful and the animals that come up to you adorable!
