I have eaten at La Cascada quite a few time for many years and love it. I do not live in Costa Rica anymore but I make sure my family takes me there when I visit them! I usually order fish because I do not eat meat but it is delicious and their side dishes are great! It is a... More

La Cascada it's a tradition in Costa Rica. This is Costa Rica style steak house, different than you traditional steak house in the USA. the flavor of the meat it's amazing!. The sides are included in the price and you can customize them as well. However for a traditional meal stick to the standard black beans, baked potato and sweet... More

Without a doubt this was the best meal in Costa Rica; the food quality and service was exceptional and on par with any if the top restaurants I've experienced anywhere. The ambiance is lacking but the trade off is the costs are considerably lower to a more formal restaurant. The steak I had was tender and tasty. My wife had... More

My first trip to La Cascada was in 1979, and have been there many times since. It was and still is my fav restaurant in Central America. The half baby beef with chimichurri sauce is just about perfect.

THE PLACE It opened back in 1965... and when you get in, you can tell it haven't gone thru any renovation since day one. The place looks old, has old furniture and isn't really a place that invites you in or to eat either. The restrooms were horrible! wearing tiles that were old, tasteless and not so clean really.

Our guide recommended this restaurant. It was soooo delicious, we had the grilled vegetable appetizers and the salmon topped with shrimp for entrees. We substituted the sides that were included, changed the sauce. Had large bottle of water.......with all their taxes.....$46. We added additional tip. Go there.

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!!
