Surprisingly impressed... A much needed night!

We learned of this place through tripadvisor. Though it seemed that San Jose had a limited restaurant scene, we were very happy that we found this gem within an easy walk of our hotel (Apartotel La Sabana).

Our meals were bland and not very exciting at all. We had hoped to find some unusual South American vegetables. The atmosphere was friendly and the staff was helpful.

A taste of the Andes in Costa Rica! Excellent service in a clean, characterful restaurant, this eatery surprised us with its great food and good vegetarian choices. Recommended for something different.

Went here for dinner on my last night in San Jose. I had the sea bass which was wonderful. We had a large group and the service was prompt and seamless.

Very good. Excellent service. My Spanish is poor, but our waiter took the time to help us pronounce correctly, and made recommendations on what to order.

Great authentic Peruvian food. Don't miss the "causa de camarones", the ceviche, the breaded shrimp and calamari and, for dessert, the causa limeña. This is a favorite of mine and my husband. Whenever I go to other Peruvian restaurants, I'm disappointed because they don't taste like Macchu Picchu.

Seems to be a popular lunch venue among local business people. Would be appropriate for a business lunch. As a suggestion, two appetizers make an plentiful lunch. The tiraditos de corvina is quite good. The octopus skewers are delicious.

The dish I had was good, but not really the kind of thing I like. I'm more of a spicy cajun fan so I can't really judge. Nice family atmosphere, good service, comfortable.

The Seafood here is excellent, as I write this review I am salivating as I reminisce on those giant cocktail shrimp that was pleasing to the palate. Every course blows your expectation and you are waiting with anticipation for the next. The price here is quite reasonable and the staff is quite attentive and courteous.

We ate at Machu Picchu for our only night in San Jose (during a 10 day honeymoon). The food was AMAZING (seafood was so fresh) and the service was excellent! Definitely worth a visit!
