“not what it was”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Years ago, it was a very nice and fancy restaurant. }
Now, low quality of the meat, still price and the restaurant looks very very old.
good service, but it is not what it was.

“Best Steaks in San José since 1965”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

Fabulous Steaks, grilled to perfection. Their Baby Beef is a classic served with baked beans, sweet plantains and baked potato. Absolutely delicious. The ambience hasn't changed much since 1965, but their food is consistently the best.

“Always Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

This is a traditional restaurant that has been there since I remember visiting San Jose 20 years ago. The meat is always great, I recently ate the "Puntas de Lomito en Salsa Jalapena" (filet tips in a jalapeño creamy sauce) very tender and flavorful. Great place for beef!
