Service is good, food is great but good luck if you try their special hot sauce! It's hotter than anything we've ever had. The sea bass was special.

I have gone there twice. The service is attentive, the food prepared quickly and the juice drinks are very good. Overall a good experience.

Recently had dinner here with a few friends and really enjoyed it. Most of the dishes were very tasty, and the wait staff was quite pleasant as well. Nothing wowed us, but everything was good and cooked well. There are plenty of tables as well, so walking in doesn't seem to be a problem.

I can't even begin to describe how good the food is at this place. It's one of the best in Costa Rica I've tasted so far. The Good food I've tried including: - Shrimp Coctails ( Best in my life) - Chinese Fried Rice - Grilled Octopus

We went here and tried several dishes. The beef dish was wonderful. The cold potato dish was very heavy. The kids fish dish was VERy expensive (12 bucks) for about 5 very slender fish fingers and a few fries. The perk here was the flan, good but expensive.

The Machu Picchu was very low key and even blue-collar, but the food was great and very reasonably priced. The fish soup was some of the best I've had, and the ceviche was also very good. Watch our for the Peruvian hot sauce, though (it was on the side).

We went to this restaurant on the back of several excellent reviews. One said it was not to be missed. We are at a loss as to why. Starters: The seafood ceviche was, to be fair, very nice. The fried calamari was mediocre at best. Lastly, we ordered an unusual sounding dish of prawns stuffed in avocado with parmesan. There... More
