I ate here with a group of fourteen people a few days ago on our last night in Costa Rica. Although the waitresses were friendly and very helpful, I had no idea that this was to be the worst experience of my life. I suffered a severe bout of food poisoning, along with most of the group, and had to... More

the building is fantastic with gardens, balconies and different areas where to eat. Great decoration and atmosphere in this old colonial mansion. Very popular and busy restaurant (at least for lunch) with locals. Unfortunately food was just regular. Still I recommend it for its atmosphere.
