I stayed one night in Alta Hotel and decided to stay in for all my meals and I can say that I definitely made the right choice. We started lunch with a caprese salad and salmon carpaccio. The cherry tomatoes were sweet and juicy and the salmon tasted fresh, not packaged. My main dish was Pacific sea bass in a... More

We came for my girlfriend's b-day and the place, ambience and food are just amazing. The portions are small but incredible in flavor and presentation. A well balance menu and ok priced.

Liked the service, quality of food, elegance. An overall great experience. The hotel manager approached every table to ask the patrons about their experience. All staff spoke Spanish and English.

Rest. La Luz is the best, I had the opportunity to have lunch with my colleagues after a business meeting and everything was fantastic, the food, the service, the views of San Jose from the restaurant, the privacy of the hotel. I choose it also to go for dinner and at night is even better, very recommended!!!

Stayed at this hotel and ate the breakfast and lunch at the hotel. Good selections for breakfast (American, continental or Costa Rican) and the lunch menu also had good selections. Food was very tasty, had the grilled chicken in passion fruit sauce with cassava and grilled tomatoes and a caprise salad. Very efficient service and reasonable prices.

We had several really great meals at La Luz during our time at the Alta Hotel. Really unique and inspired international cuisine that's still definitely has some Costa Rican influence. After dining around several great restaurants in San Jose, this was the one I found myself consistently coming back to. Professional chefs and a beautiful location.

Entering this hotel is like entering a castle. It is grand with stone steps lined with reading nooks down to the La Luz. We were the only couple there on a Friday night, but we enjoyed that. The food was expensive but we especially enjoyed the crème brulee assortment dessert. Overall a lovely time out with my husband in a... More
