“The best curry ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

I have tried some dishes here and all of them are great. But if you like curry, you have to come here. I had the tofu and vegetables curry (they also have chicken, beef and shrimps curry) and this is definitely one of the best curry dishes I have ever had. Noodles are also delicious.
Food has delicate flavors and scents that combined create a remarkable experience.
Also, there are healthy natural drinks.

“Well prepared Vietnamese food..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

The spring rolls were crispy and delightful. The curry spicy prepared to taste. The soups fresh, filling and flavorful. Intimate restaurant with approprriate art and decorations to make it interesting. We attended on a Youplon discount, but were treated as a full fare customer. We will return. Good value, pleasant staff, good food.

“Good Start hopefully it will improve with time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2012

We ordered Pho for lunch and had it delivered. By the time it got here the soup was cold so we had to reheat and reheat so the noodles would cook. Might be a better experience just going to eat there. Will try it again.

“Excellent Food & Best Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

So glad I am finally given permission to write a review on one of our favorite restaurants
here in Costa Rica. This restaurant was written up favorably some months ago in our
local newspaper and we tried it soon after. In addition to some very unusual and tasty
dishes, the owners, Agnes and Chef Don are just the nicest people you would ever hope
to have cooking for you and serving you when you dine out. For those of you who have
never experienced Vietnamese cusine, believe me there is something for everyone on
this menu. After your wonderful meal, do not leave until you have had an opportunity to
sample one of their absolutely magnificent crepe desserts. You will wish you had saved
room for "TWO" because they are outstanding.

The atmosphere is lovely as well and you have dining options either inside this attractive
little restaurant or outside if that is what you prefer.

So for those of you who have not tried the Pho Restaurant & Cafe yet, don't wait any
longer to sample and enjoy this wonderful cusine.
