Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

January 27, 2011

Amazingly, we have more restaurants to tell you about this week. Cafetería Mediterráneo, on the second floor of the La Garza commercial center, 20 meters west of Banco Nacional, now offers a lunch buffet for just ₡2,500 ($5) per person, Monday to Friday from noon to 3 p.m. We have heard they have the best gelato in Quepos. For information, call 2777-0505. A new chess club meets at the restaurant on Saturday afternoons (queposchessclub@yahoo.com).

We also have a new Argentinean steak house across the street from Hotel Kamuk, a couple of doors down from Wacky Wanda’s. Che y Che Parrilla, owned by Carlos Domero and Alejandra Vargas, is open every day except Sunday from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. For information, call 8841-5382.

Pizzeria Joker is a new casual Italian restaurant in front of Escuela Corea in Quepos. Owners David and Daniel serve a full Italian menu with many pizza options. The restaurant is open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. For takeout or delivery, call 8732-6742.
