You'll need a gps or a driver to get to this restaurant...and it's so worth it. The quality of food from appetizer to mains to dessert is almost matched by the amazing service and scenic view of the valley. Just a perfect experience and can't wait to go back.

Amazing views, excellent food, warm and detailed service; El Tigre Vestido is one of the best meals I have had during our two years of living in Costa Rica. Set among the coffee fields near Santa Barbara the atmosphere is pleasant, with a stunning view of the Central Valley. Chef Oscar Picado is among the best in Costa Rica creating... More

Warm place with great city view, nestled in a coffee farm, including nice boutique hotel, and a very nice deck where is the restaurant are. Food is very good, I recommend the seafood soup and the burger. You will take many pictures. It is a kind of mountain trip not far from San Jose, so it can be a lunch... More

One of the nicest places in Costa Rica metropolitan area, just 30 away from Heredia downtown, the restaurant located at a self sustainable farm, taking the concept of farm to table to another level, the place has a great terrace with view to mountains and gardens, the food is a Costa Rica Fusion, very fresh, really do recommend this place

The food is ok, a little expensive. The best part is the place and the view and the peace and silence in the hotel. Service was slow and bad, if you are going plan a lot of time for lunch.

My husband and I have eaten at El Tigre Vestido about 6 times. We bring people there for special occasions and have never been disappointed. Combined with a walk in the gardens and the purchase of organic coffee, makes for a nice day. A great place for people who live in CR as well, not just tourists.

While staying at the great Finca Rosa Blanca, we ate at the Tigre Vestido only one evening. The place is great, especially in the morning during breakfast. In the clear days you've a great view of San José from the hill overlooking all the valley. In the evening this is even more intense because the capital's many lights are really... More

The location is very nice, but nothing spectacular. I wouldn't call this "typical" for Costa Rica, even if that's what they are trying to pull off. From my point of view as a national, this is very close to being a tourist trap. The food at the restaurant is OK, a little on the bland side, with very small portions.... More

We loved eating at el Tigre. The food was some of the best we had on the trip. The steaks were amazing as was the seafood. The bruscetta and tuna tartar were our favorite appetizers. Make sure you save room for dessert! The view of the city at night is amazing!
