Delicious seafood, big portions, good service

This place was recommended by the concierge at Grano de Oro and did not disappoint. It's a rather large restaurant, just a quick 3-block walk from the hotel. The night we were there was the night before Mother's Day, a major national holiday in Costa Rica, and was filled with locals celebrating as... read more

In MP you will get amazing value for your bucks! Delicious food; I have tried Corvina a Lo Macho, Ceviche, papa a la huaicaina and grilled octopus, and all of them have been very fresh and well prepared. Service is very attentive. It has a convenient parking lot. This is one of the best deals in town. Highly recommended!

The food here is very good, but they don't always have the full menu. They didn't have the Lobster or the seafood soup. I ate here 2-3 times during my 12 day stay in San Jose...

We gave this place a try after reading all the great reviews on TripAdvisor.. Also, we have never tried Peruvian cuisine so it was somewhat of a novelty for us.. We had very high expectations from the place and it would be fair to say the food did live it up.. We ordered a fish and shrimps entree (maybe picante... More

Walked to this restaurant from our hotel, very convenient location. Ordered the sea bass ceviche which was delicious! For our meals we had two steak dishes and they were to die for. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

We had a fabulous meal, with great service. My wife had a Pisco Sour made in the old fashioned style, however, when we studied the bill more carefully back at the hotel, we discovered that we had been charged $35.00 for the one drink!

The Sea Bass is excellent and the different sauces, wow. It has gotten more expensive though. Good atmosphere, very romantic, close to the Cacts hotel.

We went here on our last night in San Jose. The food was all delicious, and the portions are very large. Highly recommended going here if you're in the area.

My husband and I had a great dinner here. The food was good (I had a fish soup) and it was nice to eat with some locals in a casual setting rather than in a fancy tourist hotel restaurant. I've never been to Peru, so I don; t know how authentic the food was, but it was good! I would... More
