We just went to a restaurant in Ochojal called Mamma E Pappa, where we enjoyed exceptional great food. The restaurant is clean and super-friendly. They serve hand-made pasta, pizza and much more. They also have a few cabins for rent with a cute swimming pool. They are also very kid-friendly (swing in the garden). The restaurant is open Tuesday to Sunday. Their contact infos are: www.mammaepapa.org and 2786-5336.
I first came to Costa Rica in 1998. I fell in love with the country right away for so many reasons. I have been coming, living and unfortunately never staying off and on since.
