Miss Edith's Restaurant

Miss Ediths's has become a tradition, and deservedly so. Quite some years ago, Miss Edith decided to start serving home-cooked meals to all the hungry visitors hanging around. If you want a taste of the local cuisine in a homey, sit-down environment, this is the place. While Miss Edith's daughters take the orders, Mom cooks up a storm out back. The menu, when you can get hold of it, is long, with lots of local seafood dishes and Creole combinations such as yuca in coconut milk with meat or vegetables. The sauces here have spice and zest and are a welcome change from the typically bland fare served up throughout the rest of Costa Rica.

After you've ordered, it's usually no more than 45 minutes until your meal arrives. It's often crowded here, so don't be bashful about sitting down with total strangers at any of the big tables. Miss Edith's place is at the opposite end of town from the park entrance; just turn right at the police station/post office.

Without shadow of a doubt, the food is sublime. For vegetarians or meat-lovers, they offer the freshest food, cooked in the inimitable Caribbean way. Melt-in-the-mouth gallo pinto, like you've never tasted before, is highly recommended!
