Rosti Pollo knows how to roast some moist rotisserie chicken! You can depend on it being good at any of their locations in Costa RIca. Their menu is all around good.

Dinner was ok we had the Quesidilla without chicken as an appetizer it was average and a little soggy, the ensalada were very good and the whole rotisserie chicken was juicy and very good. The fajitas were terrible with plain unseasoned chicken the only good thing was the black beans.

I didnt like the chicken here, very dry, not much flavor. The place is ok, but the food is not that good.

This restaurant is right in front of Hampton Inn next to Denny's. We went there because it was safe to walk there and it was close by. I'm giving it a lower mark because it was somewhat expensive for mid level food. Also, we got the staff randomly walking up to pitch things. That was a good education for my... More

We visited this restaurant a couple of times on our trip. The first time was for lunch and our server did not appear to like serving gringos although the food was quite good.

This was close to our hotel ( The Hampton Inn) and served very good food. Though the menu is mostly chicken dishes, there are a few other things too. It is also quite reasonably priced. The staff is quite helpful and most speak very good English.
