We had a fantastic meal at this restaurant! The service was quick and friendly. The food was Mexican style at the restaurant. It was a nice break from the traditional Costa Rican cuisine. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant to everyone passing by.

We came on a Monday evening and it was not so busy. But the service was extremely slow. Extremely! We waited for our food for almost 45min and even another 20min just for the bill.

Located conveniently on the main street west of the town center, and boasting a very attractive, open air dining area, we had high hopes for this "Mexican Steak House." The two for one drink special provided good undersized cocktails; okay, no real complaint. My wife...More
