We visited the town of Orosi on a rainy day (we really had no sunny days while in the Orosi Valley) and we decided to eat at a place close to the town church, since we wanted to visit the church anyway. Restaurante Bar Coto was the one that hit the spot! We liked the look of the place, the location and the friendly atmosphere.

Service was a little bit slow, but again, no service in CR will be as fast the one you get in the USA or Canada. It was, however, much faster than any service we got in Rome while eating at a restaurant :)

The food was good and their drinks were excellent. I had some pineapple batido that was delicious! Food portions were big (again, we could not eat everything that was on our plates) and the price was very decent. Their prices are a little bit more expensive than the ones at Sanchiri Lodge and Mirador Restaurant, but nothing to stop us from returning here in case we wanted to eat in town again.

At this place, service is not included in the bill, so keep that in mind when you pay your bill and add few colones on top of it for the waiter.
