We have eaten there numerous times and the food and service have always been excellent. The stone bowls are particularly tasty. Good service from all the staff especially Polo.

We are in San Jose for 3 weeks and have eaten at El Herradero's three times. That in itself says enough. Their stone bowl meals are fantastic, the service is prompt and efficient. The staff is friendly and fun to spend time with. This is a great introduction to the San Jose dining scene.....try it, you'll love it.

As mentioned, the clay pot dinners are their specialty. Don't touch the pot like my son did, he is still nursing a minor burn. All three of us enjoyed a unique freshly made meal for a good price. Our only mistake was that we ordered too many appetizers and left the restaurant very full without trying dessert. Two of us... More

Excellent food, fun, family-oriented atmosphere, a genuine, fun Mexican food experience. A friendly server took all our orders with a smile, and food was brought forth after a short wait made easier by freshly prepared cocktails for all. A high point was the live Mexican trio who serenaded each individual table while the restaurant owner and servers all sang along.... More

My wife and I went in late feb, we had a great time. The service was great with all staff having a laugh with us. We were recommended a traditional Mexican dish in a lava stone. This was amazing, one of the best meals I have had. My wife's nachos was also top quality. The complementary guacamole and salsa was... More

I recommend any of the clay pot dinners with freshly made tortillas. The staff is very friendly. We always eat here at least twice when we visit San Jose.

Wonderful food, but kinda spendy after they get ya with the free margarita. Chips and salsa-delicious! Had the fish and it was terrific! Prepare to pay American restaurant prices-$20-25 for an entree.
