Our orders of fish and meat were prepared well and served promptly. Portions were average, and although not the best flavors I have tasted in similar restaurants, we enjoyed our meal. The atmosphere is relaxing and the setting nice.

Los Anonos is a very typical costarican restaurant where families go have lunch on sundays. The food is great, the beef is amazing, the platano maduros and patacones which are typical costarrican dishes are great aswell. The normal dish comes in "casado" form which is how costarrican have their food. The waitresses are always nice and there is a good... More

We have been visiting Los Anonos for years. A very nice restaurant and on the whole good food. However my T-bone this time was a bit tough but did have a good flavor. Most ordered the tender loin which they said was great. Normally the service is also great but this time it had a lot to be desired.

This restaurant is one of the best restaurants in San Jose, it is a family place where the food is outstanding. We have visited this restaurant for years and the quality and flavor is well maintained over the years. We love to go there with family or for business lunch. I recommend this place.

As a neighbor in San Rafael de Escazú, I constantly eat at Los Anonos and the food and service still very good (as you can see on a previous review I wrote). But I wanted to comment that yesterday that I went to have lunch, the check really insults your senses and pocket book. I sincerely consider that is RIDICULOUS... More

This restaurant is an excellent tradition in Costa Rica, open since 1960. The steaks are fantastic and so is the seafood. It is a really good location for dinner with the family, or business partners. The wood decor and soft music puts one at ease, and the service is excellent. Anonos easily competes with the myriad, recent restaurants that have... More

A great way to end my trip to Costa Rica when I was brought here by a local acquaintance. The restaurant was quiet on a Sunday night as most Costa Ricans generally spend their Sunday evenings with the family and at home. I had the pork tenderloin which was a generous portion, served with beans, plantains, French fries and vegetables.... More

The building may look fairly modern, but this restaurant had been around for decades. And there is an explanation - the food is good and the Costa Ricans keep coming back for more. This is mainly a steak house although the menu is fairly broad. The food is brought out on an old style serving waggon by waiters who seem... More

Los Anonos has long been one of our favorites. I wouldn't go so far as to say the food is the best, but its good and its like home cookin. Don't expect big fat steaks, think more suave juicy thin steaks, which at first impression make you wonder where the rest of the cow is, but its ok in the... More
