Pho sure!

this is the ONLY place to get good pho, not to mention it has some of the best spring rolls i've had. If you're looking for a healthy, exquisite meal that will give you your bang for your buck, you have found the place. Ps. Great place to take a date

Vietnamese food is traditionally healthy with tropical ingredients like the ones offered in Costa Rica. They got it right at PHO since the soup's ingredients are balanced without the excess use of sodium. The mango salad is my favorite especially since it comes with a generous amount of pork meat. That said it could easily pass as a main dish... More

Upon discovering Restaurante Pho a few years ago, I have since been a repeat customer. This restaurant has consistently provided good, healthy Vietnamese food over the years in a relaxed, laid back environment. The Curry is both savory and light and the Bun, (a grilled Chicken/Pork/Shrimp with cold vermicelli and fresh vegetables dish) is especially refreshing during hot days. The... More

Small place and one of the few where you can get Vietnamese in Costa Rica. Menu is not that large but what we have tried has been good.

On rainy days or after workout this place is the best <3 The whole Pho experience is awesome! Good portions, colourful plates, right amount of taste (they don't add sugar or other fake flavours like they do in other places) I recommend the soup (all kinds) & the rolls, very fresh and beautiful

Hi. Went to Pho for dinner with my wife. I have never been too much of a fan, but she loves it. The lettuce wraps where done in some soggy leafs filled with holes ( from bugs, it seems) , the Nori was old and smelly on the other "rolls" ( the ones with nori, lettuce and rice paper. The... More

Good portions and flavor. The first Vietnamese restaurant here in Costa Rica, I guess. Next time I'm going to try the buns :)

Menu limited but what we ordered was good: spring rolls wrapped in both rice paper & lettuce leaf & a fried noodle dish; plenty for 2 to share . Beer & wine only. Outdoor seating available which was nice as we had our dog with us.
