This restaurant looks super good! Very nice tables, flowers, table clots etc.. It is very elegant also, so when you enter you do have high expectations. We ordered the corvina fish, gnocchi, pizza and risotto fungi. They were all good but not delicious. The service quite bad. We asked for some spice sauce for the pizza and it never came.... More

Spent ten days in Costa Rica and ate at some very good restaurants, but this was by far the best. The fish soup was wonderful and the beef was by far the best. Perfectly cooked and very tender. Good wine list. Friendly efficient service.

My wife and I had a fantastic night there last night. The carpacho was a great start. Wine selection is great. Our red bottle was served at the right temperature. About 8 to 10 degrees Celsius. I ordered a risotto and my wife had wood baked shrimp. Both dishes were excellent. Price for two was about $100 including the bottle... More

Lovely atmosphere to enjoy a nice dinner. Have been a couple of times and delighted with everything I've ordered. The service is excellent but get there early to avoid the long wait. Not even gonna say anything about the wait or prices because I see nothing wrong with taking your time to prepare an excellent meal and then charging what... More

This classic Santa Ana restaurant (the first upscale Italian restaurant in the western Central Valley town) has changed ownership 2X since Mauricio and Pietro developed their original concept. Usually, the change of hands would be turbulent for operations and for the menu itself, but Bacchus has always maintained its high standards. All dishes are good, but my favourites are the... More

We had an excellent dinner at a very nice atmosphere. The service was also very good. This restaurant is probably one of the best in costa rica. Prices are absolutely reasonable.

I loved the pumpkin ravioli, the service, and the ambiance. Great for romantic dinners or business. The menu had a nice variety of options and the dining room allowed for those looking for more private tables or larger groups.
