Lonely Planet review for La Casona de Laly
At the heart of Escazú Centro, this much-loved restaurant-tavern specializes in country-style Tico fare. Locals and expats alike pack the joint for cheap, lip-smacking bocas, ice-cold beers and a soundtrack of merengue accompanied by the cackling of the owner’s pet birds, who inhabit the cages that line the entire west wall of the restaurant. Be sure to try the dados de queso (fried cheese cubes) – they are the best.
