Everytime I travel to San Jose, I make it a must to stop at Terruno. I love their food, especially the Argentinian empanadas. Needless to say their meat is outstanding. Happy customer who'll keep coming back.

Good Argentinian Restaurant. The protions are good and side dishes are really good (specially the ironed yuca). I don't recommend the "Empanadas"... they are really small. Rader than this, all the options are good.

Everything was perfect during this visit. Location, welcome, staff friendliness, food suggestions, food preparation... everything. I tried the traditional Vazio which was absolutely amazing. I indicated to the waiter about my allergies and kept those in mind the whole time.

Basic Argentinian restaurant. We sat on the terrace and had to look for the waitress or waiter a few times. Steak was overcooked and the side dishes (vegetables) cold and a small portion. It was not terrible, but with so many choices in the area,...More

Terruño Restaurante Argentino is one of the few restaurant in Costa Rica to offer up great quality Argentinian steaks in a great atmosphere. After entering through the 20th century wooden door, the atmosphere is a mix of urban and contemporary.If your taste buds desire a tender meat feast, Terruño Restaurante definitely serves us some of the best grilled steaks in San José. Try their exclusive Gaucho steak or perhaps the beef chorizo.Terruño Restaurante also offer fish and seafood in a Mediterranean style and homemade pasta
