The food was very good, the service kind of good but for the fact that for the food it took some 40 minutes to arrive & all waiters disappeared during that time, something that considering that the place was empty at that time was weird....More

Very delicious food and overwhelmingly nice staff! We tried the Empanadas and the Chorizo, because they were recommended by other users, and we loved it. Especially Danny, our waiter, contributed to the positve experience at this restaurant. Definitely worth a visit

If you like steak but haven't spent much time eating meat in Latin America then please take my advice and order the best kept secret they have. Forget the sirloin or ribeye or tasteless fillet steaks. Order Entraña served al punto and prepare to astonish...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
