I enjoyed my tuna ceviche very much and my husband was very happy with his octopus. Service was good. Eating alfresco on the patio was very nice. Its on the more expensive side but you get what you pay for. A very nice choice.

We looked for the best place to go in Alajuela on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. The food is fresh, the dishes are very tasty with some nice combinations and well dressed. Prices are more expensive than the average but you pay for the quality.

Buenas noches. Para nosotros sería un honor; solo tome en cuenta que la reapertura será el día 13 marzo y el día 15 es el día de la inauguración y únicamente ese día no se podrá reservar. Estoy a la orden.
