I was craving for Peruvian food, so we went there. The services was very good, nice ambiance but the food its was a let down. We tried the ceviche; it was so sour. we also tried the Octopus grill and it was so sweet like a dessert.

I've been here many many times and have never been let down. Everything they offer is beyond excellent, their service, food, wine, dessert, you name it! Definitely try the "ceviches" (any, they are all perfect) and save some space for some "suspiro limeño" for dessert, you might want to split it cause the portion is big and very sweet. Do... More

The best of Perú in Costa Rica. The food is amazing, fried ceviche, lomito saltado and suspiro limeño was delicious. The service is the best and offers a good variety of dishes and average prices. The place is clean and invites you to come back for more. Nice location.

Get an Costa Rica waiter, they are very humble and honest. We had ordered so much food and the Italian waiter did not tell us we where over doing it.

First time in Costa Rica looking for a Peruvian food. Went there by a friend's recommendation. Simply amazing, I've ordered a ceviche with fish, octopus, shrimps, I forgot the name, but I can tell you, it was reeaally good. I'd definitely come back there to try different plates.

Very nice place in escazú. Pride to be the best peruvian in San José, I would say that they have a good ceviche but not quite sure about the fish. Staff is nice. Modern decoration.

My husband an I ordered an assortment of platters; quinoa salad, octopus, tuna ceviche, salmon. The dish that we both loved was the octopus. It is crispy and covered in a honey, balsamic glaze. We would visit again just for the octopus dish, and the freshly baked bread they bring to the tables!!

La Divina Comida has a very diverse menu and a staff who is happy to explain it. Lots of ethnic dishes and amazing beef, but the ceviche is the best I've ever had. Also, try the beet carpaccio. So unique! You'll be dreaming about this meal for a while!
