Among the best restaurants in San Rafael, Matices personnel is always welcoming. Wether you want to have a full meal or order the "bocas" aka tapas, you will find most of the menu is delicious. Price -quality relation and portion size is better than most restaurants in CR. very recommended for casual lunch or dinner.

Best casado in Costa Rica. The meal begins with chips and various dips. The food is good-sized portion and absolutely delicious. The owner was gracious and the service overall was excellent. We went back two days in a row (I ordered the same thing twice)!
