In here, you get the real deal, the ingredients used are real high quality, the food preparation you can tell was done by a Chef that knows his/her menu and how to properly prepare it and most importantly, you don't feel that you are overpaying for your food, you feel the price is right for the quality, the taste and...

After three weeks Costa Rica, this is for me the best. We had two times one antipasta shared by two, each a maincourse and a bottle of wine for 50 EUR. A warm hearted headwaiter senor Luiz, a kitchen staff that prepared with love healthy and tasty food, nicely presented large portions. We felt sorry we did not Discovery this... More

I was in the mood for something different. Not usually a huge Italian fan, but as I said, "something different." They had no issue making a reservation for one person, and in fact responded immediately to my email for a reservation. When I arrived it was quiet for a Friday night, but granted huge rainstorms going on (I am from... More

Very pleasant location for lunch, but just do not understand the necessity to have a large TV viewable from every table. A definite distraction for a high class restaurant, but a feature of every restaurant I dined at in San Jose.

This restaurant serves the best salmon carpaccio, the pastas are great as well, and the panna cotta is excellent, also they give you delicious homemade little bread buns. About 95% of their menu is gluten-free or has a gluten-free option, my dad has celiac disease and we visit this place regularly. The service is great, the waiters are very kind,... More
