8 of us had 1 hour for lunch. The waiters are attentive and fast. The menu hasn't changed and serves good food. Closest to the real tacos al pastor. Drink order (sodas and plenty of fruit juices like pineapple, strawberry) was served fast and always they receive you with a large plate of tortilla chips, Pico de gallo and sour... More

I've been alone, with friends, for business or on a date for dinner or lunch. Great all purpose restaurant, true to Mexican cuisine. The best Sopa Azteca I've had in Costa Rica and can't go wrong with their tacos, though their choices are limited to pastor and regular beef and pork without all the variety Mexican tacos have. Yet it... More

You want something like a taco al pastor and where are you going to go? Tacontento? I think not. This place. Pretty quick to serve, reasonable prices, clean and tasty food. Nothing to get overly excited about but hits the spot when you want some meat or beans in a corn tortilla. Acoustically challenged tile and metal interior and traditional... More

My date and I came here for lunch. The service was quick and friendly. The food was average at best and the price was too high considering the food came with no salad or any sides. We did get a small complimentary tortillas plate, but that was it.

I went here for lunch on January 1, 2016. I ordered a burrito. The first ingredient listed for the burrito was "guacamole." After I had a few bites of the burrito I realized it did not have guacamole so I called the winter and told him. He said it had no guacamole because they were out of guacamole. 1)He should... More
