Great Seafood

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... read more

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.

We had a great dinner there and were very impressed with the service, the quantity and quality of the food. The waiter was excellent and the location convenient to our hotel (Grano de Oro).

Authentic, delicious Peruvian cuisine. I ordered the "Arroz con Pollo a la Peruana," which was a chicken dish with arroz verde and cilantro, and it was delicious! My parents ordered two different types of Sea Bass, and they said it was the best Sea Bass they had eaten. This restaurant has a great location, one block off the main road.... More

We followed the advice of the Rough Guide and sought out this restaurant, actually very near our hotel, the Grano de Oro. The food was really good and a lot cheaper than the hotel. We had the sharing platter of fish which included lobster - lots of food. The pisco sour is worth a try too, but very alcoholic. I... More

This popular resto is packed with locals and a few tourists. The seafood is immaculately fresh, from the many delicious ceviches to the fish and shrimp dishes to the crisply fried calamari. It is a noisy place the result of many diners having a good time. Very friendly and helpful servers. Good value as well. Really good and inexpensive Cava... More

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). Both the atmosphere and the service were great but we were really impressed with the food. We knew we wanted seafood and immediately... More

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.
