We stayed at the hotel next door, so it was an easy choice for us. They have a nice selection of fusion dishes, not sure about Peruvian origin though. Food was good and the live music was nice. Service was prompt but without a smile. Reasonable prices.

Quinoa rules at this restaurant. Good food, good service. Not too pricey. 30-35USD per person. Service is a bit slow. The waiter took his time to go over the menu.

I have been to the restaurant just last week celebrating a friend's birthday. We were attended very well and the food was very tasty and well executed. It is a little pricey, but overall I would really recommend it. The only downside is that it closed a little early for us hehe..... BTW, suspiro limeno is a MUST......fabulous dessert!!

As un general is San Jose, all the service is kind and fast, one thing that give me attention is that one of the waiter "say goodbye" to the table and assign to other waiter. The dishes are ok, but we ask for rissoto and other dishes an they are no available, a downside. Also, I think that dishes are... More

Nice place and location. The Ceviche Nikei was very good. We try 3 main dishes and all where good. Price of the wine by the glass was to high and not in the menu. Desserts were very good also.

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.
