We ate several meals at the restaurant while we stayed at the Finca Rosa Blanca and found the both the food and atmosphere to be wonderful. The restaurant gave a beautiful view of San Jose both by day and night. My wife had the ceviche which was very good and the coffee reduction on the steak was excellent. If you... More

We wanted to try something different for lunch on a Sunday and picked this place attracted by the organic food promoted on its website, although once at the place we did not perceive the same promotion to the food and its organic ingredients, nor were we able to differentiate it from any other restaurant. Portions are generous but we still... More

Ceviche, house made tropical root chips, seared ahi tuna. With a salad from their own gardens. Delish!

We had two very good dinners at El Tigre and loved watching the lights of San Jose flicker in the distance from the outdoor seating area. Our fresh tuna entrees were great.

My wife and I are Costaricans and we are no cuisine experts so this is an opinion coming from regular tourists. We stayed at the hotel Finca Rosa Blanca to celebrate this 2015 Valentine's Day. There was a special Valentine' dinner with two choices for each course. We usually pair our pick and this time was no exception. We both... More

We are staying at the Finca Rosa Blanca and this is the house restaurant, so we decided to have dinner here as we were too tired to go searching. We are glad we did. Our lunch here had been excellent and very good value. We were not disappointed at dinner. We elected to have only main courses as we had... More

Worth a visit just for a relaxed & enjoyable, yummy meal with great service and great views... but why not stay over at the Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation & Inn where the restaurant is located. The two together are simply unbeatable! Hard to find but oh so worth it!

With a green house and farm located steps from the restaurant, you can be sure you will get the freshest and most delicious locally sourced food available. My favorite was the Herbed Goat Cheese Bruschetta which was lightly crisp yet melted in your mouth with delicate tomatoes, creamy goat cheese and perfectly balanced with full flavored olive oil. I would... More
