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.

The helpful service. The manager made a point to make sure as North Americans we understood all dishes and had no questions or difficulties. The oldest resturant in Santa Anna, previous estate of very important family so very historic. Patio seating is very romantic. Will be first place on our list when we return next year!!
