This place is great! If you want juicy burgers with a twist, this is the place to go. I've tasted several of their burgers and ribs and it's always top notch quality, excellent flavors and interesting combinations. When in Santiago, this spot is a must go!

Slow cooked Ribs, fall-off-the-bone quality, and definately not overcooked or covered with huge amounts of sauce set this restaurant apart from others. The tostones here are amazing! The prices here are on the high end which doesn't make it a value but you get good Ribs.A real treat. Will be back!

The wife and I pass this little gem a few times a week and decided to stop in. Otherwise seen as a small-space dining experience, Costilla's menu was very diverse. A full bar was available and drinks were prepared exactly and to the table in short order. A special complement goes to our server Ana whose expertise interpreting the menu... More

I went with my boyfriend to have some dinner and try this new restaurant but we didnt like so much. The prices were higher comparing the quality of food. I didnt like the meat (steak) which was too greasy and with no taste at all. In the other hand..I liked their drinks and location because its a quite and private... More

Great service!!! No question but the burgers specially bobby burger, bacon is very thick and too hard, the meat taste was not good, for the price of this burger is not what I expected. I should have ordered the ribs. Not happy with my last meal in DR.

The ribs continue be excellent and the portion size is large. I enjoy the ribs more when I can share them with someone else. I just don't care to eat a whole slab of ribs. Their steak wrap is also excellent- lots of meat and well-prepared. The only negative on this visit was their credit card machine wasn't working. I... More

When I arrived there I met the owner Carlos. He was very friendly and helpful. The ribs were juicy and fell off the bone which made for great taste. I would definitely return here again. The prices were reasonable and the portions were large. Also, I loved that the ribs were served on a wooden board making it easy to... More
