The manager was very nice and checked on is and made sure everything was good. The food was absolutely amazing. And the sangria was delicious and one of the best. I am from... More

We got here when it opened, and it took almost an hour to get our food. When we got it, it was all deep fried, and very heavy. We would not go there again.

Dissapointing to say the least: the snapper was small, over breaded and dry, lemonade was not natural but powder mix, salads were runny... the only decent thing were the fries. And it was not particularly cheap. The retro music videos from the 80's in the screens were the only thing we enjoyed. Service was kind though and for that I... More

We wanted to find a spot downtown and the reviews on this spot were good, so we went! It's downtown and you can park on the street. The menu is basic Costa Rican with great options. I had the rice with fish mixed in and it was tasty goodness. The rice dish was mahi mahi, clams, and shrimp. Loved it.... More

My husband and I went while on our vacation this past week. When I pointed it out he said, no way, looks expensive. However, after reviewing the menu we noticed the prices were pretty fair and they had a margarita 2 for 1 special. We decided to stay. I ordered the Pez Inglades (fish and fries) and he ordered the... More

We saw the good reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to give this place a try. We were not disappointed. The food and service were really good. The ceviche was delicious and the meals were really good too. I tried the red snapper fillet and it was great. Very tasty. The drinks were good too. The atmosphere and décor were... More

This was a great place for a meal. We were there on a Thursday evening and it was very quiet. The food and service were great. Our server reminded me of the enthusiastic server in the movie office space. Our meal was delightful. The atmosphere is really nice with carved wood, it looked really well maintained!

Great location in downtown; very friendly, helpful staff; and the best part: the food was delightful! My husband had beer-battered fish and I had the cottage pie, both were absolutely wonderful. If you are looking for a nice place to go out for dinner, you've got to check out TICOs, you won't be disappointed!
