“an interesting experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

if you ever eat here make sure to arm yourselves with patience, as the waiters take ages to bring your meals, understand what you order even if you're a native spanish speaker, charge the check, etc... a lot of the meals are pre-made (stick them in the microwave and they're ready) so don't expect to have a genuine meal cooked at the moment. still, they can be somewhat enjoyable. they do have good coffee and very nice desserts. prices range from reasonable to downright expensive.

“Stay away”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

Really not worth visiting...

- we had the smallest lasagnas i have ever seen in my life , mine was cold, and they did not taste verry good .... it was eatable and thats it.

Giving the check took more then 30 min and when i gave then the money it took them another 20 min to give me the change. ( There where at least 8 people working ... )

“Busy restaurant!!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

The Spoon location in central San José (Avenida Central) is super busy at lunch time and coffee time in Costa Rica! But worth it.
The servers are always friendly and remember you as a customer, the pastries are delicious (try the heart of palm!).
Love the smoothies!!!!!

“Great variety and good eats.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

Lots to choose from- and quick and easy. Moderately priced- some times a little slow (tell them if you are in a hurry...)
