The place is nice, the service good. The food just average. The "tortilla española" wasn't good. I would say everything else just average.

This is a great environment where you are treated like a king. The waiters made me feel like I was very welcoming and took care of every detail for a great dinner experience. I ordered the spanish barbecue and it could be better although I'm not the best person to judge a barbecue as I am from the very south... More

The service was fantastic as always. The food was okay, I learned a while ago never to order steak in Costa Rica, but the waiter convinced me to do the streak, It we cooked properly however it contain a lot of fun and gristle. The place is very pricey our bill came to approximately $100 for two people.

Thank agflag
