My family and I enjoyed a great meal on December 23. There are English menus and the staff speak excellent English.The seafood was fresh and delicious, the service attentive and the decor was attractive. They have something for everyone-fish, meat, poultry, pasta. The wine list is good. Ice cream was legendary. Heartily recommend.

The sushi afterward was ok, nothing special, though. My company was happy with... More

Saga is an immaculate and consistent restaurant offering fusion food with contemporary, artsy ambience. The wine list is excellent and the deserts and bakery are as good as it gets!

This is a top of the line restaurant. The food and service are outstanding. All of the seafood we ordered was terrific. The setting at Avenida Escazu is new and modern. Easy access to everything from here.
