Fast and Convenient

Stayed at the Hampton Inn nearby so wanted to walk and get some air. Very close to the San Jose airport.. Quite reasonable 'no frills' food. Seats a bit on the hard side, but we were tired! Service a bit slow but place was quite busy. Server very cooperative and pleasant. It worked well for what we... read more

All the food came out. All hot. And all acceptable. But nothing left me thinking I'd come back any time soon. Not bad... Just not great. Least favorite part? The cheap napkins.

Just OK. It's a fast food place. Not much choice near our hotel (Holiday Inn). But the hotel offers a shuttle to a nearby mall with many more restaurant choices. I'd take the shuttle.

I encourage those staying at the airport hotels nearby to choose this restaurant over the Denny's next door. The food was interesting - I had a soup that was served with avacado cheese and other things to add in. Chickens were roasting in sight and all seemed fresh. Not that this is fancy or haute cuisine. Middle of the road... More

This restaurant is a good option for a quick meal near the airport. The best menu options are the roasted chicken dishes. It is a sit-down restaurant with table service. You pay by table number at the end of the meal. They do serve beer and wine as well.

Staying at the Holiday Inn nearby, this was a nice spot with hearty meal options. The rotisserie chicken is delicious. They also have some decent looking desserts, but we didn't partake. Fresh juices also delicious!

We stayed at the Hampton Inn prior to flying out of San Jose airport and two restaurants ( this one and Denny's ) are only a short walk from the hotel. There is also a Casino right there as well but we decided it was too noisy to have dinner at that location and we ultimately chose Rosti Pollo. It... More

Ate there with friends after a visit to the Poas Volcano. The service was attentive and the chicken and sides were well prepared and tasty. Altogether a very pleasant experience!

Typical roast chicken fare. The only exception is its enormously high prices. I chalk that up to the fact that they are the only restaurant within walking distance of several popular traveler hotels near the airport.

Not to efficient and prompt service. I have eaten in other restaurants of the same franchise with much better service, specially those in Nicaragua. Food was good and prices on the mid range.
