The Princesa won't be The Queen

The food was fair the prices was good but there was nothing super special about the restaurant. Located near the park but with no view the atmosphere is something one might find at a beach restaurant without the beach. Service was not the best but the place seemed clean enough.

Poor hygiene as well as loud and always cramped. The place is always full but I don't know why so many people tend to eat there is the quality and service are not up to par. Last time I went we ordered a plate of calamari and they were old and dry and stringy and did not taste fresh whatsoever.... More

The place has indeed good value for money, portions are huge, taste is OK but the layover is more of a bar's than of a restaurants. It tends to be busy so the service is quite slow, but with a smile on the face :). I had seabass stuffed with seafood. The seafood was indeed delicious while the fish was... More

The prices have risen and this place is not cheap anymore. I have been there several times and the food has always been very good. At one time, it was quite reasonable; but I think prices may be up maybe 40%. The bottom line is that the food is very good.

It looks like one mcdonalds... No ambient at all, but they have really good seafood, always fresh and delicious. They could have juices without sugar. Why does people put sugar on delicious fruits?? Always pass by when in san Jose

We go to this place at least once or twice a year, so, once we forget what it tasted like, which means seafood... LOL, we go back. The service is fast. Don't expect anything special. They come to you, take your order, and that's it. No personal attention or check backs. The food is seafood. as someone said before, they... More

You will not find a better seafood restaurant in the world. As an airline employee I've been everywhere. This place is so unique, everything on the menu is amazing. Try the sea bass, if it's not the best you've ever had I'll give you your money back!

This turned out to be a big disappointment as I had always loved this restaurant at their location in Sabana oeste and Zapote also. The food was disappointing and the service was incredibly slow.
