Nice cozy ambiance, food was delicious. The wine list was good, but limited. GET THE SANGRIA! Staff was very friendly. I will certainly be back.

The place is up in Escazu, car transportation recommended. The environment is nice and cozy, service was a little slow but understandable because it was busy that night. We enjoyed our friends meeting with the food and drinks... we felt prices a little to expensive but not bad.

Everything else was untasty, plenty of mayonnaise and the quality of the product was not good (the calamari). Definitely not... More
