A walk through the gardens before or after you eat makes a delightful addition to the experience, especially on a clear day.
La Casona can accommodate up to 300 guests and specializes in catering to a variety of special occasions, especially weddings. But, anyone is encouraged to visit even if just for a cup of coffee and some of La Casona's delectable desserts. Photo courtesy of La Casona del Cafetal
The restaurant's interior is a bright and spacious dining hall with soaring wood beamed ceilings and large, colorful artworks of Costa Rica on the walls. Buffet tables are generously aligned with platters of all kinds of food, from eggplant parmigiano to your choice of meats, fish, and salads galore.
After sunset, the candles are lit and the restaurant takes on a decidedly romantic air. During the day, La Casona is known for its breakfast and brunch, and it's a popular place to enjoy a meal before a day of taking in the sights of Cartago.
