This is the best place in Santa Teresa. Great food cooked perfectly on the grill. Good wine selection and great service. This place is not to be missed

The place looks nice from the outside, some days have live music, but the food is not that good and prices a little bit high. We had bad luck with the waitress, poor service, we had to wait a lot.

I can’t remember the name of the beer I had but it was delicious. It was the local brew on draft and the wheat/golden beer. Probably one of the best tasting beers I had in Costa Rica! We also got the mozzarella sticks and cheese...More

El Facon had a stand at the food festival and Banana Beach (super fun event) and their sandwich was the best food there that night!

El Falcon was a wonderful dinner. Craft beer, a range of excellent dishes, and great live music. Their Argentinian steaks were mouth watering. The whole experience was fantastic.

The grilled polenta app and grilled veggies main were delicious. We rarely eat meat these days but once in while I’ll have a steak and theirs was excellent. Good charcoal flavor and spices all around.

We enjoyed a very chilled out evening at this laid back and friendly Argentinian restaurant. The beers were excellent, including a selection of chilled real ales which went down well. The burgers were delicious and I would recommend the octopus tacos right off the grill.

I had the grilled vegetable plate (around $11), a passion fruit smoothie, and a bit of a companion's polenta (around $6 I think). The food was absolutely scrumptious and inventive! It wasn't just a plate of grilled veggies: you had purees and sauces and something...More
