We were a group of 7 so we tried a few different dishes. All were great. Pizza and the fettuccini primavera were both lovely. Frozen piña colada was very authentic as was the frozen mojito. No complaints. Good size portions. Would go back again!!!

We had two dinners at this restaurant while we were in Liberia recently, and enjoyed both. The staff were friendly and helpful. The first time we both had steaks, which came sizzling on metal platters. They were excellent, though the salad was a little disappointing...simply a mound of torn lettuce with little else mixed in. The vegetables would have been... More

I asked a local for a place with great local food and he recommended Jauja. The place is contemporary and they have a large international menu. I did not find Costa Rican cuisine very extensive, however, one of the most traditional dishes is the casado (combined platter). I ordered a beef casado and it was very good. I think it... More

We found this place on a whim and really enjoyed our dinner and drinks. The staff was helpful, the food was very good and the ambiance was excellent. We loved the outdoor tree the deck is built around! Large portions as well. Would definitely return!

Found this place after I couldn't find another restaurant. Glad I did. That feeling when you order something and expect a taste, and then when you bite it's so much better, that was the lasagna. Order the club soda, they have the really old school Canada dry bottles that are the way all bottles should look.

Been eating here since they opened many years ago and through the changes in management. I have never experienced a bad meal in all that time. Ceviches are fresh, pizza's are good and the wood oven gives it a distinct flavor. But, I sometimes drive way out of my way to get their beef carpaccio, don't know how to explain... More

The 5 of us had dinner here our last night in Costa Rica. The service was great and so was the food. Get the shrimp ceviche to start. We all got 5 different meals and were all really happy with it.

It is a short walk from Hotel Boyeros. There is a large tree in the middle of the open air restaurant. The pizza is very good, cooked in a wood fired oven. There are always wine specials. We visited there several times and had great salads, grilled octopus shrimp ceviche. Prices are reasonable.
