lots of traditional peruvian dishes (not fusion or local inventions), have the chupe de camarones and chicha morara. The pisco sour was OK but not the best.

The place have very different options, there is a lot of seafood, I do not eat seafood but there is also a nice selection of meats. The food is really good as well as the service. It is a little bit expensive.

Food was great - took the recommendation of people we were visiting and tried out some of the more Peruvian dishes and enjoyed them tremendously. Well worth a visit.

I am going to Escazu for Dental work with Dr. Obando staying for 2 weeks. Can you tell me how far away you are from The Courtyard Marriott Escazu as that is where his office is across for the Courtyard. In the plaza also that has Hooters.
