Peruvian food at its finest. The Octopus was so spectacular that my husband asked for the recipe. Our waiter kindly brought out the secret marinade so that we could sample it to try to discern the flavours. Wonderful sea bass and accompaniments. Great bar service. You may pay a little more here, but it is great for a special meal... More

We ate at Machu Pichu on the recommendation of staff at the Hotel Grano de Oro where we were staying (make sure not to miss the hotel's own restaurant, reputedly the finest in Costa Rica), and the food was excellent and staff the same. My family and I really enjoyed it. Of course, Peruvian menu with selections that were tasty... More

Great food. If you like seafood there are many different options. Have never been disappointed. It is a little expensive.

Although I had a hankering for steak, the descriptions of the many variations of sea bass got my mouth watering. Dinners come out in piping hot oven dishes with bubbling sauces. So so good! Didn't get to see a wine list, but the waiter's recommended Malbec was fantastic. Map app had trouble finding the restaurant, but got us close enough... More

The restaurant was recommended by someone who lives in San Jose. perhaps we are very spoiled, as we travel all over the world, but I found the food just OK , nothing special . The shock came, when I was charged $8.50 + taxes and services charges for a glass of Argentinian house wine. But probably was one of the... More

This was a pleasant surprise and lived up to what we had been told. Easy access parking close by. This is the 2nd time we have been here and always great. The staff is multi-lingual and very helpful. The meals are perfect size and good value. Well done as the meat came as ordered! Rare was rare and medium was... More

While I had the best marinated thin slices of fish with a magnificent sauce, the Rockefeller Oysters (baked oysters cover with parmesan cheese) were terrible. Just rubber kind. Service was outstanding but dishes were overpriced. I have eaten better and at lower cost in Lima, Peru. Difficult to find the location and decoration of the place is poor.

I ordered steak with fish sauce and it was absolutely delicious. Service is also great. Loved it! Go there when you are in San Jose.
