I have this idea that peruvian strategy for World domination is seduction through food and La Divina Comida is certainly a good example. This place is a unique combination of taste, space and environment. Everything I've tried has been great. Don't miss the octopus or the seafood risotto. My favorite drink is the peppermint pisco, a mixture of cultures in... More

We had a customer visiting over, so we considered La Divina Comida. Overall, it is a great place, food is well-served. Presentation of dishes, plus ingredients look and taste delicious and fresh. I do recommend this place; however, if you look for authentic Peruvian food... go else where. Their food is a fusion between Asian and Peruvian cuisines... really good,... More

The food was okay, but the service was really bad. I have been to this restaurant before and had issues with the food. This time it was the service. Our waiter, Cesar, never greeted us. Took our order after a long time and we never saw him again. Another waiter brought our food and seemed annoyed when we asked for... More

Very accommodating staff in terms of your specific requirements for the food and they seem to go the extra mile. Large number of American customers - probably from the numerous US companies nearby. The fish was fresh - the Peruvian desert with condensed milk worth trying again. Overall a pleasant evening and experience.

Was invited for a business lunch at La Divina Comida and found this restaurant to be outstanding. Great atmosphere, knowledgeable / engaged service and outstanding food. The selection of Ceviche and Tiraditos was impressive. They also have a business lunch which is fast and with a great selection. What a treat. Cannot comment on the beverage menu

Staff was great, food was delivered promptly and drinks were always kept full. The food itself was decent but I feel a little overpriced. In all fairness I feel this way about most restaurants in San Jose, they easily have the worst quality dining options of any capital city in Central America. Most countries in Central or South America you... More

Nice option for dinner, kind of fancy place but still need some magic to be the perfect option for a good place, nice service and diverse menu with good options. The place offer both in and outdoors options.
