I went a couple of times and they served me an old piece of cake of macadamia. I have eaten different products from there and all has expesive prices for the quality. I don't recommend, but if you want just a coffee in the tables outside, is good.

This small place is next to our hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn so I decided to give it a try. The Hilton wanted $17.00 USD per person for their breakfast buffet. I was feeling cheap on our first morning. We arrived early to find the place manned by one young lady handling the waitress duties, cashier and take out assembly... More

I stopped there to grab some lunch, following some local advise and the food is great. Although I only had a sandwich, I was very good and good serving size. I didn't have the chance to try their desserts, but they seemed delicious !

This was a great place, but quality has dropped a lot on last year. Multiplaza restaurant manager is clueless. Employees have an I just work here attitude. Seriously, avoid this place.

I really liked this place due to its variety of options. It's a medium sized cafe but you also have lunch here, not only a coffee with a croissant. The service was really good, friendly and fast. They have free wifi. You can pay with a credit card though Amex is not accepted. On a Sunday morning around 11, no... More

This review pertains to TeConTe in Plaza Lindora, in Lindora, Santa Ana. If you go there for coffee or sweets, then I guess you get a descent value, however we made the mistake of going for breakfast. My wife ordered their plate of the day, basically bird-feed. Small quantity and very low quality. I ordered eggs Benedict, nothing I had... More

We ate here and tried several of their desserts. Pecan pie, lemon pie, maracuya pie, and my favourite, cheesecake. It was all quite good, but VERY expensive.

thing i hated most, out of a few locations I tried, it seems this restaurant is plagued by flies. I've noticed too many cleanliness issues to ever consider trying them again. If the tables and bathrooms are disgusting, can you imagine their kitchen? Anyhow the food is mediocre, maybe one par above fast food. Typical bad service for costa rica.
