Pricey but one of the best places I've eaten at in Costa Rica!

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... read more

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...

I have just gone back to this restaurant. I have visited before during a business trip. The steak is cooked to the perfection, the side dishes are delicious and the service is outstanding.

A local told us this place was worth a visit... Boy was she right. Starting off with the fresh baked breads, amazing.. Than the chorizo, all locally made, and perfection. The meats are all well aged wonderfully marbled and my steak was not too over seasoned and, well delicious. The soufflé' was rich and not overdone. Secure parking and a... More

Great place to take your date out for dinner. A little bit expensive (more if you get wine) but worth it

I have visited this restaurant a couple of times in different trips to Costa Rica. Unlike most steak houses, this restaurant specializes in US-type cuts. Premium! Cooked to the desired term, excellent service, good wine and beer selection (including their own crafter beer). A little pricy, but well worth for the quality!
