Rosti Pollos San Jose, Costa Rica

Near Clinica Unibe hospital in San Jose, not the one in Alajuela, but they are all about the same. I frequently travel there with groups of Americans going to the hospital for medical care, members from Samaritan Christian Healthcare Ministries. We usually eat there at least once during the day... read more

I recently ate here and it was a pleasant surprise. The food was good & the price was reasonable. The location is convenient with parking.

Fast food, specializing in chicken. Nothing to write home about, but very convenient to the Holiday Inn Express.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express 2 nights flying in and out of the SJO airport. One night we ate at the Denny's across the street the other we decided to try Rosti Pollos which is also across the street on the other side of the Casino and were pleasantly surprised. This is a reasonably priced restaurant (much better... More

As noted by others you have 2 choices if staying at the nearby hotels. We chose this as we prefer not to use chain restaurants when traveling. The rotisserie chicken was very good. We ordered sides that were new to us for the experience - after tasting the yucca sticks we decided that the plant got it's name when the... More

I was staying in the Hampton Inn next to the Holiday Inn Express in Alajuela, because it is near the airport and is located on the highway that leads to Monteverde where the Cloud Forest is. However, as far as dinning is concern, there is very limited choice. This one is one. The menu is simple, basically roast chicken with... More

I really should be giving this restaurant one less star. But, the service was friendly & efficient. I ordered the chicken & avocado salad. It arrived without the avocado. I told the waiter that the kitchen staff had missed putting it in my salad. Some one from the kitchen brought a small dish of avocado to add to the salad.... More

Good taste and good value. I've eaten here both on my own and with my family a number of times and highly recommend it if you're looking for good chicken at a reasonable price.

If you're staying at the nearby airport hotels, this restaurant is one of two choices you will have......we ate dinner there the other evening, and have to give it mixed reviews.......my husband enjoyed his quesadilla and I thought the chicken salad was pretty good especially since Rosti Pollos is basically a fast food place. My husband had a house white... More

The food,specifically,the chicken was tasteless and at 7.95 for a half chicken it is ridiculous.Costco has ruined us all with their delightful whole chicken for 4.95.This joint makes Denny's look like Ruth Crist.Trust me on this one eat next door,at the airport or out of a vending machine(maybe a dumpster)
