    Que Rico Aqui Arenal: Excellent food and service!

    by dafni Written Oct 5, 2010

    Que Rico Aqui Arenal deserves to be acclaimed as the #1 restaurant in the Arenal area and La Fortuna. We totally enjoyed every meal at Que Rico Arenal.
    From the moment you arrive, the staff provides a warm and attentive welcome to the modern dining space with spectacular views to the volcano. The service is stellar from start to finish, with incredibly courteous personnel and reasonable waiting times.
    Their breakfast buffet is perhaps one of the best in the country, and it’s free when staying at the Arenal Volcano Inn! It provides plenty of options to choose from, from the typical ‘Gallo Pinto’ to omelets made to order, to fruit and cereal bars.
    On the other hand, the menu itself is so varied; it’s difficult to decide on each course! It offers primarily Italian food, with excellent choices of pastas, pizzas and carpaccios, as well as international and typical Costa Rican dishes. The incredible taste of the food is just as good as its presentation – each dish nicely decorated, from appetizers to desserts.
    This is an essential Arenal Volcano experience and it’s worth every dime. We will definitely return on our next trip to Arenal!

  • Let's call them # 1 and # 2: Cheap restaurants

    by endbegins Written Jun 7, 2005

    # 1. Big and tasty hamburguers we had for lunch. There were much more options in the menu. Very cheap. It's got like a pub upstairs for later on.
    # 2. Mamma mia pizzas¡¡ Tasty, big (which sometimes it is important) and cheap. More options in the menu. Nice waiter. Nice beer.

    Typical Local Snack Bar

    Watering Hole, Costa Rica

    We stopped at this little place during our drive to Arenal Volcano, when the bus driver had to change a flat tire. It was typical of many of the local watering holes - very basic, but with a couple of coolers filled with cold sodas and Imperiale beer. And those delicious little lime chips, sigh!

    Roadside Stand, Arenal, Costa Rica

    There are lots of little roadside stands, just like this one, in the rural areas of Costa Rica. We stopped here for cold refreshing Imperiale beer, during our ride. Chips and other snacks were also available.

    Favorite Dish: We got addicted to these little lime-flavoured chips, which we have searched for everywhere, to no avail!
