Don't let the appearance of this place fool you - although this plays looks very low-key sandwich-shop-esque from both inside and out, the food is gourmet and just phenomenal. Plus, while the food is far superior to our other meals in Costa Rica, the price was lower than what we'd paid at other restaurants both in the Monteverde and Manuel Antonio areas. We ended up ordering the eggplant napoleon appetizer, the seabass with passionfruit sauce, and the beef tenderloins (and were full, despite the "tapas" description). I had initially wanted to order the ginger seabass but was told by the knowledgeable (spanish speaking) waitress that I couldn't eat it because of my wheat allergy. I was skeptical about the passionfruit seabass option because I normally don't like a sweet sauce on my savory main dish, but it turned out to be perfectly balanced and absolutely delicious! I highly recommend both this and the eggplant appetizer. I wasn't quite as impressed with my boyfriend's beef tenderloin but he loved it and that's what counts. :) Somehow we were the only people in the restaurant and the chef noticed that we'd pulled up in a taxi and proactively offered to call us one when we had finished our meal. As one of the other reviewers said, this place truly is a hidden gem
