The food is Peruvian! it is lovely plates of fish and soups that are to die for with interesting spices. The traditional desert "limon surprise" translates as Sigh of a women is a combination of a delicious custard topped with a rich meringue made with port. You should probably share this but it is so hard to let someone else... More

I wish I had better pictures of the food but it was so delicious I didn't have time to take pictures. There were ceviches, and breaded steaks, mashed potatoes and veggies, and coconut flan. It was all delicious and the servers were helpful but not pushy! We will be going back!

My daughter and I had just arrived in Costa Rica. At 8:30 p.m. we took a short taxi ride to a Peruvian restaurant recommended by our hotel. It was a fabulous meal!

We had Dinner at Yorgos (Peruvian). We had the Pollo con Hongos Porchini and Pollo de la Casa Yorgos with wine. The chicken dishes were good, the server very pleasant, and the cost was $40 total. I would have given it a 3.5 star if I could.

This is a small place that opens up in the back to a pleasing little patio. They have very nice and friendly service, a basic and serviceable wine list and very good Peruvian fare. I recently had the tiradito de corvina appetizer and it was enough for my dinner. Don't pass ups the chile peruano (ají), it goes very well... More

We had tried this restaurant in January, and were anxious to return on our next trip to San Jose. Again, the food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. If you're not familiar with it already, try the Inca Cola. Yum!

I had dinner here on the recommendation of a friend who said the filet mignon was excellent. Costa Rica is known for its terrible and tough beef, but the steak was excellent and tender and perfectly grilled to order. The ceviche was also fresh and delicious. The service was excellent and friendly.
