The view is breathtaking especially at night. The meal was excellent. Service very friendly. However, in the evening it is necessary to wear some warm clothing because it can get a little cool. It is a really a very authentic place. Highly recommended.

I'd definitely recommend visiting Mirador Tiquicia. Everything about it is a great experience. We enjoyed the food, loved the live show and appreciated the friendly staff. The view of San Jose is to die for! I'll be back when I return to San Jose!

I was whisked into the kitchen to make empanadas soon after we arrived. It was great! The food was delicious and the dancing was amazing. I enjoyed seeing the different regions represented. My husband was chosen to join in the dancing. So fun!
