Close to Hotel Presidente. Youthful little venue with great food. Not expensive. clean and tasty. More of a light meal type of place.

“So expensive for what you get”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Yeah its yummy most of the times, but for what you pay you might as well go fine dinning... I always used to order a salad to my job, but everytime they get it wrong, and their managers don't seem to care about their clients... So I guess they can afford to loose clients everyday... Not recommend eating here

“Basic Fast Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This Spoon Restaurant was in Sabana Sur,,, Not bad but just basic fast food…. The Spoon Restaurant in San Jose is much better and they wait on you at the table, good service there…and food was excellent there too….always busy there, very popular, here you order at the counter and come back when name called…Opt for the downtown San Jose Spoon, you will not be disappointed. Would definitely return there but not herein Sabana Sur.
