Emilio's was right up the street from the house we rented and the house concierge told us this was her favorite. I can see why! The food is great and the atmosphere is great. Loved the homemade sangria and the specials are very imaginative. We only ate dinner there but the breakfast and lunch options looked great too! I would... More

We received many recommendations to go here, but it was just average. The ceviche had a lot of red onions and no avacado. We enjoyed it and the view was probably beautiful during the day, but too dark to tell at night.

Ate there for lunch which was wonderful, then our whole group went back for dinner that same night. We all raved about the food. Local, eclectic . The sangria was suburb, seafood stew excellent, desserts to die for. Live music on the weekends too.

We went to Emilio's for dessert. I was hoping for a signature 'Costa Rican' dessert, still there was a ton of amazing dessert options. We shared the delicious chocolate mousse. I had an Americano coffee which was out of this world!! Highly recommend!

We stayed just down the road at El Paseo del Mar and found ourselves coming back to Emilio's many times. Breakfasts and dinners are both great. Our favorite's were the Roasted Chicken and Kale Salad.

This doesn't look like much from the outside but was recommended by our tour guide. The food was really outstanding. We started with grilled octopus and then had kale salads. For our entree we had the trio of seafood which was outstanding. That said, it was rather expense dinner. With $50 bottle of wine the total bill for two was... More

Great place for some local food for breakfast or lunch or dinner. We had a lunch here which was pretty good. The best part was the view.
