We love the food here at Kiantis,visited with my husband, son and his family. The baby beef is out of this world tender juicy and full of flavor, I would recommend all of their dishes, prices are very reasonable and the service is great, we even had the owner come over and check how was everything.

When I arrive here in Costa Rica over 20 years ago a friend introduced me to Kiantis. Today it remains one of my favorites with good food and pretty good service and prices. If you want a bit of the local scene the restaurant is across the street from a football/soccer field which seems to always be busy and entertaining.

I ate there for dinner after work one evening. It's a very short taxi ride from the Marriott San Jose. The Corvina Kianti's (Sea Bass in a white wine cream sauce) was delicious.

I wanted to invite my family to eat somewhere quiet and peaceful, with good space between tables. It was a good meal, peaceful as I expected. It is a bit on the expensive side, but I still recommend it.
