My friend and I ordered a “Plato de compartir” of beef, chicken, pork and chorizo sausage. It was the best grilled meat I’ve had in Costa Rica and better than most steakhouses I’ve been to in the USA too. They use Angus beef from the...More

I've eaten here numerous times. Highlight of this meal was a mint lemonade after a long, hot day. Lovely dining in the backyard with a cool breeze framing a flaming pink/red sunset.

Quiet on the patio on a Sunday mid afternoon. Waiter (David) was very friendly and attentive. We had the rib eye steak with salad and vegetables. Very satisfied. Reasonable price for a steak meal. Convenient location just north of the auto mercado.

We stopped here not knowing what to expect as we hadn't researched the place. It turned out to be one of the best meals we had during our week of vacation in Costa Rica. Can totally recommend this place. Excellent food, excellent service.

This is a very good steak and grill restaurant. Prices are slightly higher than other restaurants in the area, but in my opinion they are worth it. I have had many different steaks here and none of them have disappointed. A very good business dinner...More

Situated just outside Alajuela heading north, this restaurant is worth seeking out for great steak. The steaks are huge and full of flavour. My favourite is the Angus, but the sirloin is also excellent. The pitcher of Sangriha is also worth trying-full of fruit and...More
