The shrimp were large and portion size was more than adequate. My wife really enjoyed it. The Lava Bowl Combo was excellent! Served very hot in a large Lava... More

Had a delicious lunch today! I had the coconut shrimp with mango sauce plus veggies & rice. My husband had the fish hot pot. We'll definitely be going back before our return home.

We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. We kept going back because we enjoyed the fiod so much. The Teliqua Cheese appetizer is out of this world. You also need to try the Hot Stone dishes. Staff was attentive and very friendly. We were 6 people and everyone enjoyed everything we had. Highly recommend this restaurant.

If you are looking for a unique experience stop in. We had the chorizo cheese dip and the table side preparations were wonderful. My husband had one of the stone pot meals which he said was great. I had the fish tacos and could not eat a of it. Service was great. Would highly recommend for a mid budget dining... More

Lunch at this restaurant was part of a guided tour (El arco cruise, tequila tasting, lunch) and we really enjoyed it- great drinks, fajitas were really fresh, hand made tortillas, great salsa and guacamole. Although it was very simple, food came really fast and everything was delicious. We had a group of 12 and everyone loved it!

El Herradero was recommended by our resort. The food here was very authentic and good. I recommend trying one of their stone bowl dishes. We went on a Tuesday night and it was not that busy. It's family friendly and has a nice atmosphere. I highly recommend eating here. It's slightly off the beaten path of downtown San Jose but... More

We have eaten at El Herradero's several times. We have celebrated birthday's here and they have provided a pleasant surprise for the birthday person. We have also enjoyed their breakfast buffet on Sunday mornings which included many Mexican dishes.

We happened upon this place during the Superbowl. It was on our list of places to eat so we were pretty happy. There was only 1 other couple eating when we got there but they were soon gone so we had the whole place to ourselves. I had the fish filet with garlic and it was pretty awesome! The whole... More

The menu offers a nice selection of favorite local seafood and meat dishes but the family's own twist to the usual recipes makes this restaurant a good dining choice. I didn't try their well-loved molcajete seafood dish and opted for the tortilla soup and coconut shrimp. The soup was hearty and full-flavored and the shrimp delicious. While the coconut added...
