The food was delicious. The atmosphere amidst bamboo trees under a roof was very pleasant. The service was friendly. The presentation was artistic. The bill was high and worth it.

Bad service, average quality food, I wouldn't recommend this place. The atmosphere is nice, it took 15 minutes to get our drinks, food came and we didn't had napkins neither silverware. Waiter was a smartass 😏

A fusion cuisine with a highly-appreciated variety of dishes, Saul means to me that funny moment when we arrived there by acccident (non planned breakfast-brunch) and we still think that at the end it was not an accident. Service 5 stars and people that really...More

Good brekfasts and tasty meals a la carte. Nice waiters and overall good atmosphere. A place to recommend, also for the location in Escalante, in my opinion the only nice area in San Jose!

Food is good, nothing to die for. I went for breakfast and dinner. I liked the breakfast options better. The place is beautiful. It is like a little microclimate inside San Jose.
