Ok ... definitely somewhere if you fancy lots of meat!

Ate here on our second night in San Jose (2nd Dec). Was ok, we wanted to order the 400g mixed grill to share with a side of chips but ended up (something got lost in translation) with 800g of mixed grill, a side of chips and a huge salad!! It was so big we simply couldn't eat it all and... read more

The place will hold around 200 people, don't go for the buffet, wait for the meat. They have great offerings.

Had mix feelings about the food ,some of the meat was really good and some were dry and hard to chew. Was disapointed that we only got one pan conqueso each, I have been to these types of restaurants before and always looked forward to these brazilian bites which they will bring a basket full, but here we each got...

The people are friendly and will go out of their way to help. The service is a little slow. The food is average and some of the beef cuts were tough. Definitely a little over priced

First it's over priced, on the salad bar I didn't have anything that i went crazy for, I mean when you pay that much you expect everything to be awesomely delicious, but it was not the case, it wasn't bad it was just average. In the other hand my boyfriend liked eating all that meat however he didn't like the... More

Very complete menu and buffet. Excellent salad bar, side dishes and meat. Not as many cuts as a regular Brazilian steakhouse but well prepared and delicious

Excellent salad bar, side dishes and meat. Not as many cuts as a regular Brazilian steakhouse but well prepared and delicious. Not usually the case with meat in Costa Rica. Be forewarned, however, that this place is not cheap. Roughly $40+ per head for the all you can eat salad bar and meat skewers. Pricey but at least the food... More

In Costa Rica to pay for a couple 170 dollars.... Come on! I think it's crazy. Also it's a American style restaurant, big and not cosy at all. Cheers

Not as many meat choices as most rodizzios but it was all good. And the salad and pasta bars were very tasty. However $50 per person in Costa Rica is really over the top. Marketing to those on expense accounts or wealthy foreigners. Definitely not families or middle class travelers. I now understand that we should have asked our hotel... More
