We had a great time at Monteleone we were treated as family. Food was very tasty as well. We had the chimichurri steak and the grilled chicken. Nothing pretentious just honest food.

My boyfriend and I decided to go to this restaurant for our last night in Costa Rica based on all the great reviews we read. The waiter Ronald was extremely friendly and offered us a great service throughout the whole diner. He made two recommendations: the fish (sea bass) and the tenderloin steak. Unfortunately, we went with both of his... More

We were attempting to find some seafood spot people raved about. 10 at night. I slipped crossing the street ripped my toms we settled on this little gem. My friend got the well cooked cod. I settled for guacamole with a cute presentation beer and a quesadilla. Do frills but attentive service and good food.

Ate here for dinner last night and was the only patron in the place. Honestly, I liked it that way. But Ronald (I believe) was an amazing host. He made small talk with me, asked about my trip in C.R., and then, when I told him I was from the U.S., he showed me an incredibly old U.S. coin he... More

First of all I have to point-out the great service of Ronald. He is very friendly and recommended the best food, Tenderloin steaks. Also you shall taste the local beer. You shouldn't miss the visit in this familiar restaurant!

The place is small, yet comfortable. The service was very good, and the food (fish on shrimp sauce) had a great taste, perfect size for the portion and acceptable price for the food quality. The personnel was very accommodating to my especial requests. The place is well located close to parking facilities, and has a bohemian ambiance that makes the... More

We must have visited on a bad night because they had completely run out of steaks - which is why we went there in the first place. The only steak we did get was really tiny - and definitely not worth the price we paid for (even after getting a discount). The kids enjoyed their fish&chips but the rest of... More

Quiet and nice atmosphere plus great quality food, excellent prices and good music. This is the best place around town for dinner and/or a drink.
