Mountain restaurant and lookout point with an excellent view of the capital city of San José, the city of Heredia, Tres Ríos, Aserrí and the Irazú Volcano. Located at 5870 feet above sea level, with 2 fireplaces and decorated like home it has a cozy and warm ambiance. An outside patio with an open firepit and park benches around, attracts those who likes to take pictures of the scenery. With 49 years in business, now we have a menu that combines the best of Costa Rica and international cuisine and a selected list of wines. The Ram Luna was initiated by the family Ramírez Aguilar, Gilber and Moraima, who still live in the property and keep running the restaurant.

Very nice place but a little bit expensive

I loved the place, the view is awesome, and the food was very good. The place is very romantic and easy to get there. The food was good and the staff is very kind.

I contacted this restaurant about a request to have my surprise proposal dinner set up. I live in Texas and was coming down to surprise my then girlfriend (now fiance).

We are so happy your engagement was as you have dreamed and better... For 48 years the owners Gilber and Moraima have been "partners" of many couples in their engagement. For our restaurant it was a real pleasure receiving and serving you. We wish you the very best in your marriage! Hope to see you soon celebrating your anniversaries! More

Curiosity rises happily above the Central Valley of Costa Rica with a innocent and engaging name: Ram Luna. It's an awesome view point, an experience of family roots, Costarican memories and a touch of romance, on a traditional and family environment not to be missed. I think you'll love it!

Probably one of the most breathtaking views and best food I ate on my trip across Costa Rica. The menu has something for everyone and the staff are out of this world friendly.

You go for view not for food seems to be the motto for the owner. Nice decorated restaurant, many choices in the menu, but surprisingly only very few were suggested by two waiters. Would be perfect if food combines to quality of view. Wine by glass selection disappointing.

Ram Luna is difficult to get to during rush hour traffic in San Jose, but well worth the effort. The view is probably its most outstanding feature, but the food and service were excellent as well. I would recommend going for dinner (to see the lights of the city) and walking out onto the mirador. If it's chilly, they provide... More

We went here our first night in Costa Rica. My boyfriend and I were looking for somewhere to enjoy a little Costa Rican culture. Th tour we booked included dinner drinks and the show. All which was fun and entertaining. Not to mention the wonderful view of central valley

Our local hosts were very excited to take us here because the view of the valley is amazing. Unfortunately, it was a very foggy, rainy evening and we could hardly see in front of us.
