I recently came to this place for the first time and I was amazed with the food. I had to order 'Puntas de Jalapeño' simply because it was too delish and the first one wasn't enough. Probably because of the small servings but it was great. Also got some 'Dedos de Queso' Totally great. I congratulate the staff for an... More

This is the place to have Chifrijo in Costa Rica, the ambient is nice to have some late afternoon beers and appetisers with friends/co-workers. Very casual place, easy to be a frequent flyer there.

We went to this place the other day. Party of 6 and had a great time. Prices are not that bad if you mostly order from Vocas or small plates. The size of the plates are more than adequate and prices are reasonable. Service was good, nothing outstanding. I would try it again but not for heavy dinner.

The chicken wings were hot and excellent however and the two beers washed it down well. Pretty good at less than... More

Arrived to our hotel late - around 9:30pm. After checking in, a lot of restaurants had closed. Our hotel host recommended this restaurant because it was a local favorite and was open late. We missed the entrance, but we got there. Just look for the lit up Imperial sign that says entrada. This is like a tapas restaurant. We were... More
