Perfect steak

I loved this place. We went for a couple's celebration and it was excellent. The food couldn't have been better (I had the t-bone and a sprout salad), the service was good, and the look and feel of the restaurant was also great. I'm definitely coming back.

Food and service its great... price a little high but quality on the food justifies it. Service its great.. I had a complaint once about the quality of the plate and gave me a complete new plate, I have been in many countries/places and never saw a treatment like that.

It is not a big menu but everything in there is cooked to perfection. The place is nice, you can have a business meeting or meet with friends at night. Great place and great service.

A good steak house but certainly over rated. I had the T-bone steak which was very good. Another at our table had the sirloin and she said it was tough and was disappointed. There was a mix up between the french fries and the steak fries but when it was brought to their attention it was looked after. The bread... More

The food was very tasty, fresh and nicely presented. The wine list is offering a lot of choices for wine connoisseur. The staff is experimented, friendly, discrete and efficient. This is a place for meet lovers. There is a nice display at the entrance to show you what is available and you can even talk with the chef to ask... More

I was surprised at our bill (nearly $200 for 3 people) but this was positively one of the best restaurants we've eaten at in two years here in Costa Rica. They have great portions, super tender meat, good wine and a great ambience about the place. For a special occasion, we will definitely try to come back in the future!

It is hard to describe the incredible quality of this restaurant. The steaks are the best available. I had been looking for a good steak in Costa Rica for 5 years and finally gave up and ate chicken. But this restaurant surpassed my dreams of a great steak.

This was the best meal we ate out in Costa Rica, by a long shot. A relative upscale place but with such comfortable atmosphere and excellent service that you really feel at home. The wines were fantastic and the food was even better. For starters, we had the best eggplant dish that either my wife or I have ever tasted... More

This was a family visit with 6 kids and three adults. Pros: portions are very generous. Service was very good. We had the veggie antipasto and the roasted eggplant. Both absolutely delicious. We ordered the schnitzel and pasta for the little ones, and they were ok. The seared fish was incredible.... just the way I like it; I didn't rally... More

Doris is a fine dining establishment, but the service and food were all about average. I ordered the homemade ravioli. It was delicious, but it didn't leave me feeling "wow". For the price, I expected a bit more "zing" all around...
