Reminiscent of the rural fiestas called turnos, this restaurant presents traditional cuisine of Costa Rica. Just imagine the old matrons in wide aprons, their hair tied back with colorful handkerchiefs, cooking in huge pots and grilling all sorts of dishes. These include picadillos, some vegetable like chayote, arracache or potatos in small squares, parboiled and mixed with ground meats and chorizos, deliciously seasoned. Or, you can indulge yourself with exquisite grilled meats and rice with chicken, or a parrillada Doña Lela.
