Good points: nice view of the valley. Romantic ambiance. Good service. Bad points: very pricy with small portions. Difficult to locate and a rather tough drive. Bottom line--- would I return or recommend this restaurant? As a rule, no. I feel this is a nice spot for someone on a honeymoon or for a special occasion. I understand the attached... More

I have to say that the hotel, the restaurant and the view is amazing, the place is pristine and it makes you feel really fancy. Now, that said I can tell you, this is not the best food you'll ever have; the rice and beans is far from genuine Caribbean, we got a dessert and it was brought to us... More

I visited the place on May to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday with her family. We were a party of 7. Greetings and Service from the beginning made us feel in love with the place, recommendations for entries and main course were accurate. Try the Tuna Steak if available. The view is magnificent. Simply perfect..! 10/10

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

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.
