The place is cozy and decorated with a lot of taste, so it creates a nice atmosphere for a quiet night out. I had mostly italian dishes and they were really really good! Highly recommended.

“Fantastic Atmosphere and People!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Otoya 1155 is a much needed addition to Downtown San Jose's restaurant scene. The atmosphere is modern and stylish, but still relates to the cultural and historic context of its location. The food was excellent and the staff were among the most welcoming people we met in Costa Rica, which says a lot since Costa Ricans are known for their hospitality! Plus, they are open Sunday nights! If you're looking for a relaxed place to have great food, enjoy a beautifully designed atmosphere and feel a better connection to the local urban culture, this is it!

“Outstanding place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

I wanted to have dinner at a different place in San Jose with my friends, so we decided to visit Otoya 1155 Restaurant. We were impressed after having such a well-prepared dinner. But not only food was amazing but also the restaurant's greatest added value: Fabrizio and all his staff. We managed to spend some time talking to them and they are amazingly nice! On the other hand, this establishment has a remarkable decoration, which is kind of unique to find in the capital. We highly recommend this place to everybody! you won't regret it!!!
