Avenida Escazú pretends to be to Costa Rica what Rodeo Drive is to Beverly Hills and Via Montenapoleone to Milan. Only time will tell ... but meanwhile, it is home to a number of top restaurants. In La Divina Comida your starters come from purgatory, your main dishes from heaven and dessert from hell. Service is down-to-earth friendly and efficient.... More

The seafood is very good. It has a great Peruvian fusion twist with good tasting ceviche. They have a grilled octopus that is amazing. I had the corvina and it was very tasty. I did not rate it higher due to slow service without a smile. The waiter was having a bad day. They had live music which was a... More

Great food on a nice environment on a modern location. My favorites are the BBQ octopus, the ceviche nikei (both are appetizers), the tuna and for desert the tropical brûlée (just like cream brûlée but much better, with passion fruit and mango). Great service! A little expensive! But it's worth.

I have been here about three times in the last six months. I found it to be extremely expensive. Definitely better for a business lunch or dinner than a family meal. Food is good but I don't think it is the best Peruvian in town and definitely not worth the cost.

I went here with a group for an evening dinner. The food and wine are quite reasonably priced for a high end restaurant. The starters to share were fantastic; tuna ceviche (big lumps and very fresh!), the white fish with yellow peruvian suace and the marinated squid delicious. For a main I chose the large shrimp panka (breaded). This was... More

Both service and food vary. One day it goes from great, to the next visit, poor and indifferent. The amount of patrons has no bearing. Too expensive!!

Do not understand why this restaurant is not among the 50 bests on Latin America. I have been in 37 of the 50 on LA and for sure la divina comida is much better than several. Marco and his staff always give amazing attention and of course: the food!! Perfect!!!

As the other restaurant here at the mall the decor and layout is very nice and better than the food. I ordered the cerviche which was good, but with lots of lime. The worst part was the panko shrimp. I love shrimp, but these shrimp didn't taste like anything. I would compare them to standard frozen food shrimp panko. Not... More
