Great place for a small celebration!!

Took my wife for her birthday, not being able to make reservation, hope the best for the place to be open. Once we got there, attention was regular but food pretty good. May go again.

Expensive and not very good. Toughest steak I have ever had. The spare rib was country style, fatty but alright. Go to the Mexican restaurant next door.

We dined here on the recommendations of our hotel host. Great friendly service, excellent food, great atmosphere and reasonably priced. After travelling for over two months in Costa Rica this was one of our top three places to dine. Off the beaten path and well worth finding. Great wines and exceptionally clean bathrooms made this a favorite for us.

I'd been to this place a lot of times, and always his owners manage to surprise me with something new. This restaurant is a steakhouse, however, they have a lot of spanish typical dishes called “tapas“. It's a small but cozy place.
