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.

Love this place. The food is amazing, and the service is great. Prices are in line with what to expect for the zone, and in my opinion, the food is the best on Ave Escazu (I spend on average $30-50 for a dish with a drink and maybe a coffee).

Great restaurant all around. Amazing food, great service, great decor, cool location, good drinks! I've been here twice, once for business and once on a dinner date with my husband and both times had a great dinning experience.

Regular "fusion" Peruvian food at unregular high prices. Setting and service are ok. Not sure why but either they use too much salt or msg but I get real thirsty each time after I eat there...

We are a fine dining restaurant with exquisite unique food, excellent service and a cozy ambient. We have two separate rooms ideal for private events that can accommodate up to 30 people. In addition, we have an outside sitting area for a more informal dinning. We hope to see you soon!
