I took my BF for his birthday dinner. Impressive view, we felt like we were taking off on a plane. It's definitely recommended for special occasions, it's very romantic... The wine was good along with the Italian risotto i ordered. It is a little pricey but its worth it.

The pasta that were not sufficiently cooked. The sauce was way too creamy. The view was amazing (but there are other miradors on the way up that have a more local feel to it). The service was ok. The prices were ridiculous. We got to our table and they had open a bottle of water (10$) without even asking if... More

If you want a romantic, safe, clean place for dinner, this is it. Good italian food, great view and nice place. Not the best food, but altogether a very nice experience.

Beautifull view, one of the best in San Jose Central Valley, good service, good variety of food, 20 minutes from downtown, a little tricky to get, you will need information map or gps.

We went to the Mirador Valle Azul Restaurant a few times while we were staying at the Best Western Paradise where we discovered the fabulous find at the top of the hill. The view is spectacular as they have panoramic glass in the main dining area. In the evening San Jose looks like a city of candles as the heat... More

Unfortunately, this quaint restaurant overlooking the city takes advantage of tourists. I was overcharged several hundred dollars on a bill and was unable to have my credit card company resolve the matter.
