We dined at this restaurant in December of 2016. Overall it was a good experience -- the place is a little out of the way (at the time adjacent to an empty lot), but inside it is very nice and clean. The food looks very good -- we had the ceviche which has a nice presentation (see photo), and it... More

We went here with several friends on Thanksgiving Day (of course, just a regular day in Costa Rica). Contrary to several of the other reviews here, our experience was excellent. Yes, it's pricey, but for the quality, service and ambiance, it's worth it for a special occasion. The menu is quite extensive, the food quality is very good, and the... More

I found this place to be quite nice and the food to be great. I was concerned beforehand because I had read the reviews here, but I decided to take a chance. We arrived for lunch at about 12 pm and the place was mostly empty, which really threw me off. Determined to find out what it was all about,... More

After a delicious dinner of the Peruvian sea bass, my husband and I were overcharged $12 at this restaurant. We caught it after we paid. The cashier was not surprised, and refunded our money from his own wallet! It appeared to us that the staff was overcharging and keeping the difference between the bill and the actual charge. Unfortunately, I... More

Very expensive, very slow, screwed up both orders. Portions were tiny; admittedly, once they got the orders right, the food was good

Definitely go for the seafood dishes - especially the specials. It lost a star because I wasn't as impressed with the beef (a common problem at Costa Rican restaurants.

I guess if you are hungry you can eat in any decent & clean place (our case this visit) the restaurant is located in a very busy road .. Difficult in and out.. Food normal.. No bad.. Nothing special.. Is you are looking for Peruvian food.. This place will not fulfill the expectations. Find someplace else. It is kind of... More

Restaurant is very attractive, easy parking. Service is poor, prices are outrageous!! If Peruvian is your wish, there are many other options.

We had a great evening at Inka grill, sitting with friends and laughing with the waitress. (The English version of the menu had items like "grilled tonsured priest", and trying to explain what that was in Spanish was a hoot). The appetizers we had were all deep fried and on the greasy side. The main courses were fine but nothing... More

We stopped by for lunch and the place was a bit empty. Service is good and friendly but I guess everywhere in CR, the service is good. The appetizers are good and for main meal I had the fish and shrimps. I did not like it so much because of the heavy sauce. English menu is available.
