All reviews empanadas steak loin coconut flan salad potatoes chorizo parrillada fries chicken second floor sat upstairs national theatre costa rica argentinian restaurant our waiter great food and service
Went here with really high hopes given the past reviews here and looking forward to a delicious Argentinian steak dinner. Service and decor were great but unfortunately food was extremely disappointing. We ordered the Tomahawk to share, medium-rare, which at 30k colones / $50 isn’t...cheap. Steak came out butterflied (unevenly at that) which meant it was over cooked (well done) on the bottom and rare on the top - we actually had to send it back because parts of the top were refrigerator cold. First time I have ever ever seen such a beautiful steak butterflied - what on earth was the chef thinking?? I’d like to say this was a one off and perhaps we ordered the wrong thing but at $50 per piece of meat the chef should be really nailing this, so I have my doubts. A wide variety of interesting cuts on the menu so replace the chef with someone who knows what they’re doing and I think it’s a winner. Until then, three stars off for a clueless restaurant destroying great cuts of meat.More
Excellent food and drink - especially if you enjoy meat. Great ambience and service. Coustavo speaks English and was happy to explain each dish. Very helpful! Not the cheapest restaurant around, but better than most in that area.
Great place to eat, delicious food and the service is superb, Hugo helped us when we visited and he was amazing. This is our 4th time going to Costa Rica, and we HAVE to stop by at this restaurant every time, sometimes more than once....Highly recommended!!!More
We needed a place for dinner and this popped up on TripAdvisor near our hotel, so we went for it. It was a nice place - we were on the second floor and had a table overlooking the street, and it was great fun to...look out and people watch. We were also lucky that they were running a drink special of aperol spritzes, which happen to be one of our favorite warm weather drinks, so we took full advantage of that. :) Dinner was pretty good: one of us got an unremarkable burger, and the other had vegetable timbales, which were good. It's an extensive menu, for sure. Service was pretty good, but quite frankly, the most obviously attentive bit was the little slip of paper with the "If you had a good time, be sure to leave a comment on TripAdvisor," which our server made sure to give us. Once again, we're reminded about how online reviews can skew perception. We'd say that this is a nice place for a drink or two and a pretty good meal if you're not fussy, but as far as being a top restaurant in San Jose, review quantity has eclipsed food quality.More
We saw this place had 1100 excellent reviews and thought it must be great. I saw a few recent “overrated” posts, but thought they were outliers.
Don’t make my mistake. This is pricey, the chef, if you can call him that, overcooked my steak and...left my girlfriend’s steak still moo’ing. This place is inexpensive by U.S. standards, but that shouldn’t justify the quality or preparation we were subjected to. There are much better steakhouses in San Jose - do yourself a favor and go find one!!More
