I am sorry your experience at Ram Luna was not satisfactory. On the buffet, the servers wait for the person to tell them how much they want. Because the buffet is open for 3 hours is better that the person tries a little of everything...More

It is a long trip and would be quite expensive by taxi. If you already have a rental car I suppose that would be fine but wouldn't get one just for that purpose. We went through our hotel. They called the restaurant and... More

Mountain restaurant and lookout point with an excellent view of the capital city of San José, the city of Heredia, Tres Ríos, Aserrí and the Irazú Volcano. Located at 5870 feet above sea level, with 2 fireplaces and decorated like home it has a cozy and warm ambiance. An outside patio with an open firepit and park benches around, attracts those who likes to take pictures of the scenery. With 49 years in business, now we have a menu that combines the best of Costa Rica and international cuisine and a selected list of wines. The Ram Luna was initiated by the family Ramírez Aguilar, Gilber and Moraima, who still live in the property and keep running the restaurant. Our menu is 90% gluten free and all of our condiments are gluten free. We have options for veggies.
