Join us and help us to create the best restaurant this town has seen!


Arthuro grew up in San Miguel de Sarapiqui here in beautiful Costa Rica.  Each day he returned from school, he came home to the Soda (small family run restaurant) to work with his mother.  The love of fresh, healthy and delicious food has been a passion of his and his family's for many years.  It was a family affair with mom, grandmother and Arturo spending their afternoons cooking for locals and tourists passing by.  

Arthuro has worked with ICE, Costa Rica’s largest power company, to feed over 1600 workers who needed to be fed 24 hours a day!  Arthuro moved to La Fortuna and worked at Baldi Hot Springs where he practiced his English as a waiter and bartender.  He then moved onto Lava Lounge as a manager where he worked for his mentor until opening his own restaurant Delicatessen. Now his new adventure takes him to Nuevo Arenal to create a new restaurant serving fresh food, using many organic items and a new life in this quaint Tico town.



A family restaurant where we want you to enjoy yourself like you're at a friend's house...because you are!


Our goal is to become your favorite "go to" place to enjoy friends & good food in Nuevo Arenal, Costa Rica!
