“Wonderful out door patio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The restaurant includes a patio in the middle of the boulevard. Sitting on authentic Mexican seating under a huge tree, with wonderful service. The mojitos were good and the guacamole average (given that I am a tough critic from Texas). But you can't beat the service and the ambiance. Great place to meet up with friends.

“Ok for an afternoon drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Walking around Santana row, I stopped at el Jardin with a friend for a drink and something to eat. They had mariachis and a very nice enviorment! Attention was ok, but after 45 min we realized that they never ordered my food...despite this, when the food finally arrived, it was pretty good ( I had a chicken burrito). Great for some drinks with friends in a afternoon or if you are looking for a truly Mexican experience.

“Reminded us of Sao Paulo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This outdoor bar was the perfect place to chill out at the end of the day. We were worried that it would be too cold but all the heat lamps made it cozy and warm. This place is more of a bar than a restaurant. The menu ran more toward appetizers.

“Nice restaurant, food and surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

The food was nicely cooked from starters to mains, the beef tenderloin was outstanding.
The portions aren't huge but all three diners left satisfied in the knowledge that the ingredients were good and the meal had been cooked well, I think the prices reflect the quality of the ingredients and dishes being produced here.
The atmosphere was was good with a mix of groups and couples and the setting is a nice place to eat a meal.
We would visit again if we we're wanting a quality meal in San Jose.

“Great service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

We really enjoyed this restaurant sitting under a big tree covered in fairy lights. See photo on their website. Service was very friendly and the Mexican style food was so tasty. Great Margaritas. Really neat live music (Mexican I think) on the Friday night we went. Could be too noisy for older people as that was our concern at first. We are in our 40s/50s and loved it.
