Whenever I am in San José, I make time to eat at Arte Y Gusto Café. In the seven years I have been in Costa Rica,
it is the only restaurant of the capital where I always find the food not only fresh but healthy and deliciously cooked. I can eat with my eyes closed, so as to better taste the delicious meals, that are truly a taste of France. The ambiance is tasteful, the music relaxing and the executive meal on week days is the best value in all downtown San José.
I particularly like the mixed salad that are often an entrée on the three course formula, not only for the artful presentation but for the combination of greens and sometimes fruits, surprising and exquisite. All the sauces are homemade at the true French style, the gratin dauphinois or the tomato crumble are perfect, and as for the desserts, they are simply divine. Don't miss the chocolate fondant !
