The has got to be one of the best, moderately priced restaurants In San Jose Costa Rica. I had medallions of beef smothered in a red wine reduction with mashed potatoes with a side of sliced vegetables. My friend had sea bass on a bed of sliced boiled potatoes a covered with sea food, calamari, shrimp, mussels. The food was... More

There English was ok and we... More

Simple restaurant decor. Most entrees priced between $16-22USD (after conversion.) I ordered a Chicken with Cilantro Rice dish. So delicious, but the portion was very large. I ended up taking it to go (the charge is about $0.50 for the container.) One of my friends ordered the Seafood Risotto. While delicious, not exactly a traditional risotto. The risotto was under...

Excellent service and great food. A bit more expensive but great for a special evening or finale to your trip.

Our booking was for 16 people and our table was in a private room area. The menu was very varied proving something for everyone. Portions were generous. Service was good, as was the efficiency of providing individual bills at the end of the meal. The bathroom was 'interesting' especially the extra large mouthwash. A very pleasant evening and we we...

A good selection of standard Peruvian food, well cooked, and pleasantly served. Bit suspect about the heavy hand with the Nutmeg on my Pisco Sour though !

My cousin and I visited San Jose Costa Rica for the first time. We were looking for more authentic Costa Rican restaurant , yet a front desk agent at the Autentico hotel recommended Machu Picchu. From the moment we walked in , the host was very friendly , the place was clean and classic. The server was very helpful by... More

Lovely little restaurant in San Jose! The menu was absolutely filled with delightful cuisines, but the sea bass menu section just sounded so fantastic, we had to order from that. We were definitely not disappointed. The waiter even helped us select a delicious wine. Would love to go back if ever in San Jose again.

Cozy, elegant restaurant a bit off the beaten track in San Jose. Terrific Peruvian menu, with heavy seafood emphasis -- check out great range of sea bass preparations as well as beef tenderloin and other meat dishes.Overall some very creative combinations (e.g., nice ceviche with sweet potato). As noted by others, runs a bit expensive compared with other local options... More

Have eaten here many times, and the food was still spectacular. The prices are a little high, but if it is a special occasion, it is worth it. All of the dishes with corvina are delicious. Try a Pisco Sour to get started.
