We were staying at the hotel and it was a pleasure to start the day there with breakfast and end it each evening with dinner. The food was beautiful and fresh with great local food and a Tican twist on international dishes.

Over priced for quality and service. Restaurant view is great, nothing else. Hamburger was under cooked, bread was unbeatable. Calamari was good just not great. Service terrible.

We had dinner here on our second to last night in Costa Rica and felt like this has been our favourite restaurant so far. The chef definitely knows what he's doing, the food was delicious. The pork chops are unlike anything you've had before. I also have to say that the drinks were outstanding. More refined flavours and not sugary... More

A beautiful place with an amazing view of the central valley. Very intimate. If you are looking for a place to have a private meeting or a romantic dinner this is the place that you are looking for. The coffee was delicious. On the downside maybe the food portions were kinda little but the taste of it was worth it.

So I wanted to take my dad to a nice place for lunch and remembered this place that had a beautiful garden and view. So we went there and it was pouring rain, we went in and the staff greeted us just fine. We sat inside since it was cozier and ordered a vegetarian wrap and burger. The wrap came... More

Begin your meal with a friendly greeting from Ricardo, Nelson or Natalia while overlooking lush tropical forests and San Jose (without the noise of the city).

We stayed at the Finca Rosa Blanca during the first week of August. We ate all of our breakfasts at El TIgre Vestido and they were yummy. We did have a problem during 1 of the dinners we ate at the restaurant. My 10 year old daughter was served spoiled fish. I enjoyed the same meal that night and thought... More

this is a very nice place up on the mountain. You will see a rustic restaurant, with open spaces, you will get an amazing view of the valley and they have good food. Food is good, not great, but the overall experience is amazing. And its very close, 30 minute drive from downtown Heredia.

We tried just about everything on the menu during our trip, enough local flair to feel included in the culture and enough familiar favorites for discriminating kids to be full. Perfect blend and astoundingly attentive service. I ate the chef special whenever I could, always a win.

We expend our last night here. The food is good and kind a price too. They take around 15 min to take our order and when we finish they don't remove our plates.
