Love coming to this place for lunch or dinner. Reminds me of Perú. Menu is varied and taste and quality are always very good.

Very good peruvian food. Great Cebiche, Tiraditos and Causas. The service is good too. The restaurant offers various dishes aside from the peruvian classics; Steak, Chicken, Seafood and other kinds of meat, the sides are also really good. I recommend the Steak in Mushroom sauce, one of the best I've had in San Jose.

We have visited several Peruvian restaurants in San José and none of them is cheap; neither is Machu Picchu. However, we found the food to be delicious and abundant, and they provided excellent service. I especially recommend the blackened octopus and the shrimp causa: my mouth is watering remembering the taste. The restaurant itself is not elegant but I will... More

This restaurant was very good. A bit on the pricey side, but the food was good. Try the lemonade, my daughter swore it was the best she's had.

The has got to be one of the best, moderately priced restaurants In San Jose Costa Rica. I had medallions of beef smothered in a red wine reduction with mashed potatoes with a side of sliced vegetables. My friend had sea bass on a bed of sliced boiled potatoes a covered with sea food, calamari, shrimp, mussels. The food was... More

There English was ok and we... More

Simple restaurant decor. Most entrees priced between $16-22USD (after conversion.) I ordered a Chicken with Cilantro Rice dish. So delicious, but the portion was very large. I ended up taking it to go (the charge is about $0.50 for the container.) One of my friends ordered the Seafood Risotto. While delicious, not exactly a traditional risotto. The risotto was under...

Our booking was for 16 people and our table was in a private room area. The menu was very varied proving something for everyone. Portions were generous. Service was good, as was the efficiency of providing individual bills at the end of the meal. The bathroom was 'interesting' especially the extra large mouthwash. A very pleasant evening and we we...

A good selection of standard Peruvian food, well cooked, and pleasantly served. Bit suspect about the heavy hand with the Nutmeg on my Pisco Sour though !
