“My favorite Restaurant on this side of town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Los Anonos is my favorite place on the Escazu side of town. The menu hasn't changed in 50 years. All the dishes are served with great sides of plantanos, cole slaw, and refried beans. Pricing is good for what you get and the wait staff has been there for 30 years+. Well worth a visit if you are on this side of town.

“Very good food, get early.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

The food is very good. With a great variety of meat and seafood, you'll get delighted. For entrance I really recommend the ceviche and for dessert the chocolate cake with ice cream or the apple pie.
It gets very full, specially on weekends, so try to get early or make a reservation by phone or internet.

“Great place with Family Ambiance for as long as I can recall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

If there is a landmark in Escazu where the food is always great, the ambiance is family-driven and the service magnificent, look no further than Los Anonos.

Recommended are the spare ribs and the sea bass. Yum, yum!!

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Ate here for the first time tonight and wow! The shrimp ceviche was fabulous! All 3 of us had steaks and they were cooked to perfection and came with several different sauces on the side to try such as a chimi churi. The mashed beans that come as a side are so yummy! The fried plantains perfect! The deserts just as good! Best of all were the prices and the service! Will definitely go back!

“A regular stop when in Costa Rica”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

A great place to get high end Typical Cota Rican Fare. I eat here every time I'm in CR (which is fairly often). Good steaks and fish, great desserts. Be advised that it doesn't open until 7 I believe, so don't try to eat early. Lot's of local families with kids, recommended by a friend who is also a local. If you want off the tourist path, this is a good spot! If you want American "Mall Food" Tony Romas is just down the way!
