A must see. Javier and crew showed immaculant service. We went around 5p during the week and practically had the place to ourselves. Spectacular panorama of San José, day and night. Guacamole appetizer was delectable as was the vegetarian pasta for the main course. Also an exceptional value.

We booked the dinner show through the travel company at our hotel. They told us its 45 minutes away. They lied by omission as they failed to tell us that the van would also drive around San Jose and pick up others. The trip took almost 3 hours, due to traffic in San Jose. Our tickets said 3 hours of... More

Went here with my Fiance for an anniversary. Amazing view. Very romantic. Great place for proposals or a night out that you'll always remember . You can see all the city lights from uo there. There is a fireplace. I loved the food also. Its a little expensive but its worth its value.

The place is located over the hills with a nice view of the central valley. Food is good and the ambience is nice. The bathroom in the ladies room has chairs where you can sit and chat with your friends.

My family and I arrived shortly after the restaurant open on January 3,2017 we went there for the view of San José and for dinner. We were promptly greeted by a man in a grey suit, we ordered some appetizers and drinks, and once the appetizers arrived our waiter disappeared, for about 30-35 mins. Finally, we waved another waiter named... More

Had been about 10 years since my last visit. Now I had to go due to a wedding there. The place looked spectacular. The view has always been amazing but the atmosphere and service were exceptional. So grateful for the experience. Some details. The food was top notch, did not looked at the menu as the event was catered. Getting... More

Found this little gem by reading TripAdvisor reviews. The restaurant and staff did not disappoint. The only disappointment was that it was raining and the famous view of San Jose was hidden by clouds most of the evening. The food and waitstaff more then made up for the hidden view. The waitstaff was extremely attentive and friendly.

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.
