Great food, fun atmosphere

I've been eating at Las Piedras for over eight years. The consistent quality of the food keeps me coming back and bringing all of my friends. I've been there with two people and fourteen! The service and the food are always outstanding. You can bring your own cerveza and keep them in their cooler... read more

I like meat. I like meat cooked over a flame. Las Piedras cooks meat very nicely over a flame. I like Las Piedras! Also, the staff were friendly and the restaurant was pretty well kept.

If you are a meat lover (like me) you should definitely check out Las Piedras. My husband and I shared the mixed grill for two. It was very tasty, especially the steak. We actually couldn't finish everything. Reasonable prices and generous portions.

We had the opportunity to enjoy this little gem again over the holidays. Meat on the grill sums this place up. Outdoor bbq pit. Very authentic. Decent prices. It can get very hot in there. Drink plenty of cold beers and pour on the Lizano sauce!

We drove almost 40 min there for dinner to check it out. But, we were highly disappointed- the steak was barely ok at best. I know my way around beef and steak- been to Buenos Aires, top rated steakhouses in New York and authentic hole-in-the-wall steak places in suburbs on Boston and Philadelphia. Yes, it has a good-looking Argentinian style... More

This restaurant is just perfect. We had to wait around 20mn to have a table, which is very rare, actually that never happened to us before in Costa Rica, with both Ticos and tourists in the lineup. But we have to admit that we could have waited for one hour or more just to have a chance to go there... More

This was the first dinner we had on our Costa Rica trip and we were blown away. If you like meat, then this is the place to go. Openly grilled near the entrance of the restaurant, you can watch your food being prepared. We had a mixed plate with grilled everything and we were so full afterwards we thought we... More

Delicious bbq food. Can't go wrong with this place but make sure you're hungry ! Shared the mixed grill with a friend with some starters before hand and was more than enough food !
