Visited here on my last night in Costa Rica on the recommendation of some friends. Had a really lovely meal and a good selection of wines with good service.

“A local experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

We stopped here when we were staying at Hotel Grano de Oro. The restaurant was filled with locals, typically a sign of good food. They specialize in seafood, and the grilled octopus is worth a try, as are many of the shrimp dishes. Service was a little slow, but we were in no hurry and just enjoyed the atmosphere.

“Quick and tasty, generous portions, worth a stop.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

I've never been to a Peruvian restaurant before but our guide from earlier in the day had mentioned it so we gave it a try. A nice informal atmosphere greeted us and we were soon checked ng oyr the menu. Lots of fish dishes to choose from in addition to steak & chicken. The seafood ceviche was fresh and zingy, followed by the exceedingly tasty Sea bass 'a la Machu. Large portions meant I gave half of mine to my Husband who had the mixed skewer as well.

“Tasty Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

My husband and I walked to this restaurant from Hotel Grano de Oro. The food was delicious as were the drinks. Service was prompt. We recommend this place and will definitely return next time we visit the San Jose area.

“A MUST if you're in the area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

Deliciously Yummy seafood! It was a FEAST for great prices. Try their Puruvian cocktail and grilled Octopus. We had a large group and shared everything - everyone loved it!
