4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a great place, known for its meats and the quality and service. I've had amazing experiences and one not so good where the meat was not cooked properly (it was overcooked) although overall they offered to change it and the service and all the food is amazing. Its an experience

Nice restaurant! Maybe located away from the hotel but an amazing atmosphere, great service and really good food quality. The sauces for the appetizer were really good. Steak and Malbec was my choice and it was the best ever! Highly recommended!

I love the place and the set up. Best meats in town for sure. The carpaccio and grilled vegetables are to die for. They also have a wonderful selection of wines.

This place provides an amazing food and service however is over priced because of its location. I would prefer to go to Esquina de Buenos Aires for similar and not that pricy experience.

I've been here before on reviews of past clients (word of mouth); and was quite disappointed on many factors (although did not write a review). Decided to come back and give them another try. Tonight being a Tuesday is not busy, Entering the restaurant, and wonderfully cheerful chef/cook greeted us from behind the counter with a beautiful smile and demeanor.... More

Had read a review on this place and was hoping to have Costa Rican-grown organic beef. As I arrived and in speaking to the chefs direct at the entrance, unfortunately no Costa Rican beef was to be had any longer at this venue. Their beef is now imported from the US for better quality-control. Understandable but nonetheless slightly disappointing. This... More

I haven't thought I'll find a restaurant like this in costa rica. Totally surprised..by the design..the ambient..the service and off course the special kitchen and bar. Beautiful place hiding in the city of Santa Ana..by far the best meat restaurant in costa rica and one of the best I have been to in the world..yes..just like that.. Highly recommended.

We started with the tuna tartar and followed with an 8 ounce tenderloin cut. Ordered medium.......the steak comes medium rare at Doris. Exquisite is the word here. This cut comes with a light lettuce salad and is not to be missed. If you are ever in San Jose, Costa Rica,.......make a small trip west to Santa Ana and have this... More

If you're wanting meet, this is an upscale place that has the best options. You'll need to make a reservation as it's always busy - the food turns over, making the dishes fresh. Great wines, variety of dishes including all the choice steak cuts.the price is worthy of the food.

Want good meat - come here. Want good wine to go with that- come here. Want those to come with an excellent service- definitely come here. All of that for a special night to celebrate something, this is the place. Price $$$$
