Seriously VERY good restaurant! In San José, Vista Rica. As someone that travels a lot to Argentina for almost 30 years, I really think these guys succeeded to bring on board the good food. Great service with a wide smile. Don’t skip this one.

Terruño Restaurante Argentino is one of the few restaurant in Costa Rica to offer up great quality Argentinian steaks in a great atmosphere. After entering through the 20th century wooden door, the atmosphere is a mix of urban and contemporary.If your taste buds desire a tender meat feast, Terruño Restaurante definitely serves us some of the best grilled steaks in San José. Try their exclusive Gaucho steak or perhaps the beef chorizo.Terruño Restaurante also offer fish and seafood in a Mediterranean style and homemade pasta
