Dining in La Fortuna is nowhere near as inspiring as the area’s natural attractions, but, given the town’s booming tourist business, options abound. For a casual breakfast or lunch, try Gecko Gourmet ★ ((tel) 2479-8905;, located behind the church. Other options include Rancho La Cascada ((tel) 2479-8790), La Choza de Laurel ((tel) 2479-7063;, and Restaurante Nene’s ((tel) 2479-9192) for Tico fare, and Las Brasitas ((tel) 2479-9819) for Mexican. For good pizza and Italian cuisine, try either Café Mediterranea ((tel) 2479-7497), just outside town on the road to the La Fortuna Waterfall, or Anch’io ((tel) 2479-7560), just beyond Las Brasitas, on the road toward Tabacón. For fancy dining, Los Tucanes ★ ((tel) 2479-2020) at the Tabacón Grand Spa resort is a solid choice.
