While travelling on business to Costa Rica on business for the past 6 months I have been to this restaurant twice and have been impressed on both occasions - the food is good (from a pure steakhouse perspective - this is NOT Morton's), the portions are very good, value for your dollar is good, but I have to admit I...

This quaint restaurant was exquisite and tasty. Learning the history was also nice. Great tasting food. Worth the visit.

If you want to have a feel for what 1960 Costa Rica was like, at the time a little democratic backwater in Central America, then go to Los Anonos. It is darkish inside, its interior has a lot of wood, and service if of an old-fashioned friendliness and generosity. All the regular Costarican numbers are there: arroz con pollo, lengua... More

Los Anonos is a long established family-owned steak house in the nice neighborhood of Escazu. The steak cuts are good although not the best in town. But the sides on the dishes are, in my humble personal opinion, some of the best. The smashed black beans and the fried ripped platanians are definitely one of, if not THE best in... More

Practically the same style of menu 20 years ago. There are no good options for vegetarians. One day fill a tip sheet and five minutes beside me had an administering woman? justifying my suggestions. Not recommended for people of good eating.

It is one of my favorite places to eat meat, the side dishes and sauces are exceptional. They only have waitresses since they think women are more likely to take care of every detail of your food and will handle children in the best way. In Costa Rica tips are included but you'll want to tip the waitress for going... More

We went to Los Anonos our first night in Costa Rica and had a great time. The steaks were tasty and we really liked the atmosphere. I think it was the only time during the week we were in Costa Rica that we were the only tourists around. They didn't speak much English, so it was a nice opportunity to... More
