Best meal in Costa Rica. We both had different cuts of steak that were cooked to perfection and tasted fantastic! Service and ambiance were 5 stars. Look forward to coming back.

If you are looking for a cool place for your special guests and want quality meat don´t think twice and go to Doris, my business guests loved the atmosphere of the place and at the end they were very happy with the overall service. Food is really awesome and well the price is kind of expensive for a small budget,... More

Everything is fine in this restaurant: it is located away from the crowded downtown in Santa Ana. The decoration is modern and well illuminated. The food is superb, they bring fresh homemade bread that is delicious and then you have a broad offer of meat cuts of the very best quality. The side dishes are additional and the prices are...

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
