Was almost closing, and no problem coming in. Got a beer, with a ice cold glass, beef tenderloin with shrimp. Soo good! Massive prawn/shrimp things, tender beef and tasty veggies, nothing over cooked. Had a yummy pesto sauce on side.

We stopped here for lunch one day and went a little crazy ordering. The food was fantastic! We both had appetizers and main courses. There is lots of room in the restaurant. The service was very good. Did I mention that the food was amazing!!!

I visited after reading the reviews here. It's truly the best. I don't see much night activities in San Jose so as family we return to hotel everyday around 4pm. ( lots of stores close as early as 3pm). Finally this restaurant came up and it turned out really great. The staff speak English well and they recommend the right... More
