Ever since I lived in SJO, I would drive by the old location for this restaurant and always wanted to go and this was the day to do it. We were going to a movie so we just wanted a drink and an appetizer. We were not disappointed. The service was good and the atmosphere impeccable. Would for sure return... 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.

It has been a long time since I didn't visit Saga in Escazú. Suggest a couple of friends more to meet for lunch. They ordered salmon, which they said it was good. However, I was not very lucky and ordered grilled octopus with quinoa salad. The presentation of all the dishes was very nice. However, my octopus was so cooked... More

I have been to this restaurant many times and today I was blown away by the soup and salad combo we all ordered for lunch. For 8,600 colones (roughly $17) they served to us as a soup and salad combo that should have been an order on the child's menu. I complained about the portion size and the price they... More
