“When can we return?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

Arrived in country last night...staying next door at Studio Hotel. Dinner couldn't have been better. Service impeccable and food perfect! As I told the server when we finished..."it has been a very long time since i ate every last bight on my plate!". Go enjoy this restaurant. They have it right!

“"Low in Cholesterol, High in Service and Good Taste"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2011

I am pleased to have the opportunity to post a review on one of the finest new restaurants
that recently opened here in Santa Ana, Costa Rica.

The restaurant to which I refer is "Bufalo Grill & Market." It is located in a strip shopping center, adjacent to the recently opened "Studio Hotel" and located right across from the
Forum 1, which is an active Business Center, where many American-based companies,
such as Citibank, American Express, IBM, and so forth are located. The shopping center
is conviently located to all of these companies where they frequently send representatives
from the US offices for either short-term or long-term employment.

We are permanent residents of Santa Ana, located the desirable Central Valley area of
the province of San Jose, a lovely, friendly and attractive canton, located just a twenty
minute drive from the San Jose International Airport.

I would certainly recommend this wonderful eating establishment to any business person
or vacationer to the Central Valley area to dine at "Bufalo Grill & Market." The most
fastinating factor is that the owner has a Water Bufalo farm in Guanacauste, where they
import to the restaurant in Santa Ana, daily, fresh water bufalo meats as well as their
"prize" bufalo mozzorella cheeses, which for those who may not know, the water bufalo
is lower in cholestrol and calories than regular beef extracted from the cow, bull, or typical
bufalo, such as you would find in the United States.

The owner, Luis, as well as his wait staff are more than "just accomodating" and their only
interest is to please the customer and every dish is prepared based on the personal taste
and wishes of the clientele.

Please, if you find yourself in this area of Costa Rica, whether for business or pleasure, do
not miss the opportunity of dining at this fine restaurant, which in addition to it's fine food
and service has an extensive wine list of the finest wines in Latin America in addition to
some fabulous desserts, again with milk, creams and cheeses, from their water bufalo
farm in Guanacauste.
