Kracovia is located on a nice house beside the University of Costa Rica. It feels secluded and friendly. It offers contemporary versions of world dishes, and they do quite well. Unfortunately it felt a bit overpriced and have not returned ever since. You may go ahead and try it.

I've eaten here several times and how much I've enjoyed it has depended on the time of day and day of the week. On a Friday late afternoon/evening it is really crowded and noisy (so it would be a good time if you like that). On a recent Saturday evening it wasn't too crowded and was pretty quiet. The service... More

It is a good option for a quick lunch or coffee. Nice atmosphere. It is also good to continue working since they have wifi.

This place is visually beautiful and the staff are pleasant no doubt, but its clearly aimed at rich alternative students who want an 'exotic experience' and have very little knowledge or experience of cuisine. 3 of us ate there and not one of us was satisfied with the food! we were so thankful that we tried the starters before committing...

The bruschetta your ordered and thought as expensive, is made with a artisan sun dried tomato made by myself. It is made with organic tomatoes, organic extra virgin olive oil, almonds, white wine,...

The food is outstanding, everything is served with all natural ingredients most likely organic. No junk food is served over here so if you like soda Twinkies you are out of luck. Try the crapes they, are outstanding. Wait time is slightly faster than an average Costa Rican restaurant. Staff is very polite and helpful even if there is a... More
