We were staying at El Establo and were recommended a restaurant - Charley's - by a tour salesman/guide which was close-ish to our hotel. I'm sure it was owned by one of his relatives, but upon speaking to neutrals and locals they recommended Sabor Tico...More

Our tour guide recommended this place. It was so warm and friendly that I am guessing that a third of my rating is just for the ambiance. The food is local cuisine which was excellent. I wish I had time to go back again.

Excellent local cuisine. Good location. If you’re hungry, great place to go. The table seating on the veranda is pleasant. Many locals eat here, a good sign.

Ate here with a couple friends. Miguel was our server and he was exceptional. The food was excellent as well. Tipical Costa Rican food, tables inside as well as outside. Great little local restaurant.

My friend and I both tried a typical Coata Rican dish and it was very tasty. Portions are quite big! Price is reasonable and service is good! Would definitively go back. 😊
