One of the few excellent restaurants in San Jose. Surprising dishes, wonderful presentation in an antique shop surrounding. Absolutely worth a visit if in San José. One of the few places not to be missed.

The best thing about this place is the setting. Internal courtyard makes for a beautiful garden to dine in, and the 'covered' part is full of different art pieces. Small number of tables makes for an intimate atmosphere. More importantly is the food: the items...More
