My family and I had lunch at Lapas today. It was divine. The ingredients are fresh and the Costa Rican food is made to order. We had the Pura Vida chicken nachos, Arroz con Pollo, Gallos (tacos), and avocado chicken. Everything was perfectly cooked and lightly seasoned. A great balance between added seasoning and natural flavors. One of our family members is a native of Costa Rica and said the food was just like home. We will be back!

We attended a church in Bonita and I was looking for a restaurant to go to afterwards. I found this on Trip Advisor. So glad we went....the food was unbelievably delicious. I got the shredded beef in special sauce with rice, black beans, salad and soft corn tortillas. My husband got the same meal, but with pulled chicken. As an appetizer we split the homemade tortilla chips and salsa. The chips were the best I've ever had in my life. Everything was extremely fresh and the service was wonderful. It's a family owned business. The prices are fair and we will be back.

Great plant based food and great service. Family run and owned. They know what vegan means since the chef/owner is vegan. Ask for the vegetarian menu and say no cheese. We've been there twice and had great meals with plenty to take home. Meat eaters with us liked it also.
