Grat lunch place. Good and varied wine list. Found Raventós wines from Cataluña. The kind of wines few people in CR know about or appreciate. One draw back: It is a bit out of the way and hard to find.

Our group decided to get lunch here today. The grounds are very lush and the decor is very artsy. The electricity was out but we still had a nice peaceful lunch listening to the rain hit the corrugated roof. The service was a little slow but we were in no hurry and hey it's Costa Rica. The food came out... More

While the service wasn't the fastest, our server Donald tried to please. He forgot a few things but if you asked he was right there with whatever we asked for. We ate 4 dinners and all were outstanding. Pricing was fair. The garden was very pleasant with great background music.

We arrived and had to wait for 20 mins before we got the menus and the place was not even crowded, the waiter passed by several times wihout asking if we needed anything. The restaurant's atmosphere is very good the food is OK and the service awful so overall a 3 out of 5.

Quality and presentation of food was excellent. Quantities spartan. Prices high. My guess is that you are paying to visit the collection of eclectic art in the building as much as the food. Do not expect refills or even offers of refills at a price for iced tea or any other beverage as it probably will not happen. Overall average... More
