“Great Fine Dining Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

Found this restaurant on walk from Aloft hotel on last night of Costa Rica vacation. Filo offers very good food, excellent service and fine dining atmosphere. It has great selection of meats but since I mostly eat vegetarian I had the pumpkin ravioli with walnuts and blue cheese. It was delicious. My partner ate a beef dish with Latin spices that was tasty. It is not cheap but worth the price if you want a nice meal out with great service.

“Excellent menu and service but not cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Went to this place for lunch on christmas day with 2 friends, we had an excellent lunch and the staff were extremely nice to us. The menu contains many interesting dishes and it is hard to make a choice, I could definitely had taken all of them.

I liked the place as (at that time) it was pretty quiet, it has a lounge feel and the background music is nice, some screens were showing english premier league football.

A word of warning though, it is NOT cheap, it is basically priced similar to a good restaurant in New York. We basically ended up to about $70 USD per person for appetizers, entree and 1 shared dessert with coffees and drinks.

“Excelent.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

Yesterday, I went for lunch to Filo with a very well traveled friend. The name of the restaurant translates to sharp edge; but in Costa Rican slang it translates to hunger. It is located at Momentum Commercial Center. The food is Argentinian in style. Although it is very comfortably and beautifully furnished inside, we stayed at the wide corridor that surrounds it. As always, service was prompt and impecably courteous. We started with "chinchulines", Argentinian twisted tripe. Delicious flavor, but not very tender. We went on to a most tender and well seasoned tenderloin steak (lomito, in Costa rica). It was very well cooked and a pleasure to eat, which we did with a small bottle of very good Malbec. We were given what we went for, the best meal, with a very enjoyable ambiance. I will certainly return.
