This restaurant was very delicious. I would highly recommend it. This place was very memorable to me, I remember ordering one of the Scallop meals. I have been having scallops at other restaurants ever since trying to recreate how tasty my meal was that night... unfortunately I have yet to succeed. Thanks

What a difference! If you are not a local and you are a bit tfed up with the local cuisine, this is your place to be. The Belgian owners serve you local ingredients, prepared according European standards and flavor. Also the interior rather looks like a European trendy place. It may not be cheap, but I can definitely recommend it.

A must if you are in the area. Fresh food with a french twist. The best cheesecake I have ever had. The chef will come out and make recommendations and the atmosphere is serene.

The restaurant has a very New York atmosphere. Most of the tables are outside beside a stream. The sounds of the stream and the twinkle lights give the place a special flavor. I have ordered the red snapper and the filet with mushrooms. Both were excellent and missing nothing. Perfecto! I would bring bug spray for your ankles.

If you are looking for one "special" dinner during your trip, look nowhere else. It isn't cheap (actually, it is expensive for San Diego even) but you will not find a better meal anywhere in the entire region. I savored every bite, from the starters to the entrees to the deserts.

Went there on a Saturday evening and had the BEST mussels I've had in years! Steamed with a little curry flavor, they were a delight to the palate and the portion was enormous. The goat cheese salad was delicious as well and not too heavy. The citrus cocktail is delicious yet filling, with it's ginger flavor a great compliment to... More

We lived for 5 years in Costa Rica in the Ojochal neighbourhood. It is pretty expensive going for dinner in a restaurant, especially when it is foreigners owned. I don't blame the restaurant owners for that, buying food is pretty expensive too. But in that case I want at least to be surprised by a creative, well elaborated meal. In... More

To begin, the garden setting of the dining room is beautiful and very inviting. The menu is very interesting and quite varied. I had the fetuccini carbonara and my wife had the vegetarian pasta dish which were both delicious. The service was quite accommodating and ever-present. The owner, Marcela, personally came to out table to ask if we enjoyed our... More
