Excellent service. We ate here twice and had different dishes each time. We had the same waiter who was very pleasant and attentive. The food was excellent and the prices decent.

Very hard to take your eyes off the TV screens that are everywhere. The food is good and plenty but not very refined. However, the ingredients are fresh and local, for a reasonnable price. We shared the guacamole appetizers, since the dishes are rather generous.

We decided to have lunch here, as it was recommended by Lonely Planet (LP), as well as its close vicinity to the National Museum (we were very hungry too)! As pre-warned by LP, it is a pricey restaurant indeed (about 3-4x more than a local...More

This restaurant serves typical Costa Rican food but of higher quality than most. The steak special was fabulous - the tenderest steak I've ever eaten and very tasty. Everything from plantains to veggies were great. You have options beyond the standard beans and rice. Get...More
