“This place is amazing. Incredible. It's a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

I've been in Hermosa for 5 nights and have eaten here 4 times. Costa rican tapas which is perfect for the climate. Bartender was Andres. I had CR beer Bavaria. For tapas, I had fish tacos, bazooka nachos (not what you would think) with goat cheese. Daniel is the chef and was trained at the four seasons. All good.

“Fabulous gourmet food, not a gourmet price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

Loved everything but the Sea Bass and the Short Ribs are outstanding! The tuna tartar was excellent as well. Executive Chef, Sebastian La Rocca is amazing and we really enjoyed how he came to each table, was truly wonderful and really cared about the experience everyone was having.
My son was feeling a bit under the weather and they even prepared a fantastic chicken noodle soup for him!
