My boyfriend and I visited Z Gastro Bar on my birthday 3/18/17. This was our 1st time in Costa Rica. We absolutely lovedddd this place. Our waiter Warner was excellent. He was pleasant and knowledgeable on every meal. I ordered the shrimp & lobster pasta..it was delicious ! Very Americanized but still a Costa Rica vibe. Great place.
