Excellent steak, delicious meat! Suitable for families... Love it! Coming back every year. Ceviche is a must, then the Lomito for seconds and ending with any of the delicious typical costarrican's dessert... Perfect day out!!

It has been a tradition to come here and celebrate major events in the family from birthdays to graduations, On of the best Lomito you will find in Costa Rica, and they always treat us like family.

My mom stated this was the best steak she's ever had. It was in my top 10. We ordered the house special, and wine. Meal was good, service was excellent, and we would return. The staff was especially helpful as we didn't speak Spanish, and loved the meal!

The quality of the meats was lacking and the flavor very mild. This restaurant is incomparable with any good meat steakhouse in the US however the prices of this restaurant are completely ridiculous. I spent about $100 for me and my wife and I would have got a better plate at outbakcks or even Applebee's. Completely overpriced I'm only giving... More

Costa Rica is not known for its beef so I didn't expect a great deal re: steaks. My T Bone was tough, difficult to cut due to the grizzle running thru it. I asked for medium rare and got rare. I asked for sour cream for my potato and it took what seemed to be forever for the sullen waiter... More

Come for a good piece of meat Costarican style. You get your meat with rice, beans, plantains and a baked potato... so no Atkin diet here. Although you can order a great ceviche as well, and a delicious Corvina. Its loud and busy specially at lunch time and on weekends. They offer discounts with some credit cards from time to... More

I lived in Costa Rica for 15 years and I used to go to La Cascada during those days. Now, many years later and after visiting recently I found that La Cascada is still the greatest Steakhouse in San Jose. Great typical costarrican food also!

I've been to most of the steakhouses in San José, the new ones, the old ones, the fancy and the classic ones, but I keep coming back to La Cascada. The open view of the grill, the tasty, soft, top quality steak, the best sweet plantains and refried beans, and superb service. Every single time I've been there, I leave... More
