We recently visited this restaurant with our two children and another couple. We happened upon it by chance as we were visiting the nearby Lego Store for the kids. We were there on Saturday night and it was not overly busy, but the menu and concept were enticing so we opted to stop for a meal despite the seemingly higher... More

We just returned from the 15 day vacation in Europe and we never ate as well as the lunch we had yesterday in La Divina. The tiradito and the hot ceviche were amazing!

We have been going to La Divina Comida for the last 3.5 years. We were customers back when it was a smaller establishment, in a lower rent district about 3km from its current location. Back then it had outstanding service and food, but the location was not up to their food and service. When they moved to their current location... More

Great restaurant; I liked the formal dining, low music ambience. The flavors of balsamic vinegar and honey on the sauces where awesome. The presentation of the plates was excelent; a little pricy but worth it!

We have had dinner here 3x now and it has been very consistent with is quality, price and presentation. Now it is not a cheap place to eat so you are not going to go here everyday. It is what I call Fu-Fu food. In other words very high end stuff. As far as high end food goes the price... More

We expected to dine in a Peruvian restaurant, but it's much more Fusion than Latin-American/Peruvian. Could also be that the menu during the day offers more (Peruvian?) choices, but for dinner they only serve two optional set menus. Which both are very good: we had a very tasty carrot soup as well as grilled squids (the sauce had too much... More

The owner welcomed us and explained his background, which inspired the fusion of Spanish, Italian, and Peruvian dining at his restaurant. It was very apparent that his restaurant is a labor of love. Everything that touched our lips was delicious. Each part of our meals appeared and tasted like it was made fresh from high quality ingredients. The service was... More

My family, friends, business associates and I have loved this restaurant ever since it opened several years ago at its old location. Now, in the heart of Avenida Escazú, the food is better than ever. We went two weeks ago at my son's request for his 18th birthday. We all enjoyed different ceviches and tiraditas - for me, the Ceviche... More
