Argentinean food at its best!

We love to come here to enjoy grilled meats. The steaks are nicely seasoned and perfectly cook. They are big and thick! Be sure to try the sweetbreads appetizer or fried provolone. Or if you are hungry get the grilled meat platter to share. Good wine selection. We also love it that it is in a... read more

As we are sitting at "Como en Casa" enjoying he afternoon. We are being served by Esteban Cadet Budde, a wonderful, knowledgable and pleasant man that makes sure all our needs are meet. A great conversationalist that definitely compliments the delicious food and atmosphere that has been brought to life by Cristina & Ezequiel. "Como en Casa" is a gem... More

The prices were very high. I had salad with chicken. Lettuce was soggy and chicken seemed to be boiled instead of grilled. Very mediocre. Not worth eating

From the Mojitos which took 20 minutes to produce, to the ghastly pasta (a plate of cooked noodles with a dollop of pesto sauce in the middle - I had to blend the pasta and sauce myself) and Caprese salad, this place needs to find a cook. They succeeded in making everything solidly mediocre to worse. Really a dissapointment.

My wife, son, and I ate dinner here our last night in Costa Rica. It is located in the Real Plaza to which our hotel provided a shuttle service for dinner. It offers Argentine cuisine with its focus on beef, fish and pasta. We had the empanada appetizers, the house salad, and beef tenderloin with mushroom sauce and they were... More

I've frequented this establishment since they open 5 or 6 years ago... Never had an issue... The owner always seemed to be friendly and concerned about my meal... Today was completely different... It appeared it was a day the owner was not around.. The meal was not to our liking which we informed the waiter. He seemed unconcerned... He cleared... More

It is really a nice place, serve good food, large sized portions makes it great, a bit pricy though. Waiter attention is excellent

First, Yerlin is a fantastic waiter. The food was good, priced moderately. The restaurant was casual and relaxing. Enjoyed the meal, as did the family. Definitely worth a visit in you're in Alajuela.

This is the the third time I've eaten at this wonderful place and I've never been disappointed! We've had empanadas, blood sausage and mushroom soup appetizers, all fantastic! Our meals were various steak cuts--my daughter raved about the rump steak--and the pork rib. Never disappointed!! Too full to have dessert so can't review that. Fantastic Chilean and Argentinian wine selections.... More
