This place was recommended to us by our hostel and it was quite magical. It's a little more expensive than other places in San Jose, but if you're tired of casados it's worth it. Also, there are quite a few interesting options for vegetarians! The building has several stories ad seems to have been something else in a past life.... More

If you want to enjoy a relaxed afternoon or evening with a good coffee, desserts or some beers with friends and good conversation in a garden or terrace, this is the place for. I did find prices are a higher than average in comparison to other similar places, but I still recommend it 100%.

Kracovia is a cool spot right by the University of Costa Rica. The best part is going to the backyard/garden area, ordering a local craft beer, and asking for whatever calls your attention on the menu. It's all real good (at least the vegetarian options), so you can't go wrong. The only thing I would improve is the attention. The... More

Came for lunch and the experience was disappointing. Although the decoration and service was good, the food was terrible. I had the tuna and apple wrap and it was like something you could have fixed at home, in a hurry and no cooking skill. It didn't even come with a sauce, so basically it was a tortilla, tuna, lettuce, tomato... More

Great smoothies, salads, pita pizza, a bit expensive. Outdoor patio that is no smoking. Our waiter was very helpful since we did not know any Spanish.

Nice environment but, for the taste and size of the plates, it is way over priced. If you are planning to go there for a coffee and something to eat with it, keep your expectations low.

Food was really good. Service was so so. My order came out 45 mins late. I went to try some local beer and ordered only 1... too bad.
