Kay's Postres, Cafe & Restaurante

Kay's Gringo Postres roughly translated means Kay's NorthAmerican Sweets. Kay and her husband, Tom, from South Dakota, started out as a tiny pastry and coffee shop and grew into the only place in Atenas and for miles around that serves real American soul

I visited Atenas with my girlfriend on our now third trip here and we’re told about a Polish Cafe/Restaurant near by. Being Polish I had to try it out. My girlfriend Allison and I popped in one afternoon and met Ania the owner who is originally from Poland, lived in Toronto and now has moved to Costa Rica with her husband and two kids about two years ago. She said they bought Kay’s and cleaned it up, changed the menu and it’s a brand new place now. There’s a great menu with tons of choices for breakfast and lunch. Lots of Gringo choices and also a traditional Polish menu page. They have home made iced tea (sweetened or unsweetened) which is fantastic and refreshing which we had. Our first trip there I tried the Hungarian pancake which is a beef stew wrapped in a potato pancake and comes with 2 sides. Allison has the Cabbage Rolls. Both amazing. We came back a second time with Allisons parents and two of their friends and had Cabbage Stew and the schnitzel which was fantastic and had an egg on top. Before leaving Atenas Allison and I came back a third time to say farewell to Ania and the great ladies who work in the kitchen with her and had pirogies and a Polish sausage. Everything we tried was so authentic and brought me back to my childhood. It tasted exactly like the food my mom used to make. There’s also a huge English book library that lines the inside walls of the restaurant if you want something to read. I can’t say enough great things about this place. The food, service, quality, pricing..... everything was absolutely fantastic. Go and try it....

La Trocha

Reviewed By ruffled1

If you're looking for the best food, service and ambiance in all of Atenas your search is over. This is an easy drive only 3 minutes from town using Waze. You won't get lost - really. Frank welcomed us warmly in his lush tropical "yard" and when we asked him for his recommendation, he enthusiastically pointed us towards the sea bass and shrimp with his special La Trocha sauce. Dining at La Trocha is an experience. Frank happily worked his kitchen magic while we lazily sipped wine and enjoyed Costa Rican jazz music. The food is unequivocally the best we've had in Atenas. Portions are huge...if you like to leave with leftovers you won't be disappointed. But Frank...he's the real magic. No, he doesn't speak English and our Spanish is very limited. Yet we enjoyed his companionship for over five hours on our most recent visit. And yes, we learned a lot of Spanish that night, and when our phone batteries were nearly dead from translations he brought out chargers. In no time we were "family". A truly congenial, warm-hearted man and I'd be remiss not to say I can't wait come back. Our favorite night of our 2-week trip. Absolute gem.

So we decided to leave La Fortuna a little early due to the heavy downpour and the probability of heavier traffic but didn't consider that we had no idea that we would be ready to eat by the time we reached San Ramon.As luck would have it, we saw that several others had apparently been in a similar situation and we decided to stop and give Chepes a try.We drove by without stopping the first time because it looked closed. Thankfully, we went around the block and this time we got out to check - turns out the restaurant was open but because they didn't have any customers, they had turned the lights out!Glad we stopped because this ended up being one of our favorite meals from the trip. We had a farm burger, chicken caprese and a cajun shrimp dish. All cooked to perfection with just the right amount of spice.Our server was very helpful and her suggestions were perfect! Super clean dining room and restrooms and the prices are very reasonable!We'll stop in San Ramon for Chepes again!

Restaurante El Mirador

A very good option to enjoy local Costa Rican food; convenient prices, large portions and tasteful options. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast while watching the amazing scenery of the western Central Valley.

The restaurant is associated with the local Grecia football club, which no longer exists. However it over looks the current Grecia football team's stadium - Estadio Allen Riggioni Suarez. It has a good traditional Costa Rican menu. Casados are nice plates with meat, rice beans, cooked banana, salad. It has plenty of tables, a bar, and TVs. Good recommendation.

Don Felipe De Grecia S.A.

Reviewed By AdmiralJeff

Don Felipe was a wonderful find. While driving through Sarchi, we discovered it as we were looking for where the coffee carts were made, which is next door. The fare focuses on local meats and dishes. The menu also offers tasty fruit drinks which are made on-site every day by the owner. The portions were good sized, even to the point that my carnivore teenage sons were filled with their meals. Their specialties are meat dishes. They also offered locally prepared hot sauce condiments as well.Their prices were also reasonable on the flavorful local dishes they offered. On our next trip to Costa Rica, this Don Felipe's will be on our list of good places to eat.The setting of the restaurant with open air dining and scenic views among the mountains of Costa Rica was refreshing. The staff were friendly and able to communicate with us in English. Although they were friendly and hospitable, they were not the most knowledgeable about where to find other local items. I asked where to find some locally made cigars, and they told me that they did not know of any place that sold them. I went next door to the large cart store and found what I was looking for. Besides offing local Costa Rican dishes, they also offer Costa Rican coffee for sale.

Located in the mountains northwest of Costa Rica`s Central Valley this secluded restaurant offers a great "must-stop" location on your way to or from Bajos del Toro. The place offers great typical Costa Rican cuisine, very good service and an incredible view of the valley.

Restaurante la Finca

Reviewed By travelernottourist

Stopped in with family while visiting Sarchi. The restaurant is open air but very comfortable with garden views. I had the grilled steak with tomato sauce, plantains and veg. Steak was juicy with nice grilled flavor. Plantains were soft and caramelized. My cousin had the beef tongue tacos. My first taste and wasn’t bad with sauce. Husband had arroz con pollo. He didn’t care for it as hD some green and red peppers finely chopped in but I thought it was very good. Great selection so anyone should be able to find something they like. Located conveniently behind one of the main oxcart artisan factories.
