My husband and I have just come from Los Suenos and are spending two nights at the Marriott in San Jose. Does anyone have any recommendations for restaurants or things to do? I know it's super last minute, but I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!

1. Re: Restaurants?

There are a few in the San Jose Centro area that I prefer, Tin Jo for an asian/fusion experience tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g309293-d7… and La Esquina de Buenos Aires for steak and atmosphere tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g309293-d8… (rated #s6 and 7 in SJ on TA) Both are a stones throw from each other, and taxi is a must, with a not-recommend stroll zone when you are done, but the meals will be spot on. Closer to your hotel, just off the hiway in San Rafael/Rhormoser is Los Anonos tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g309293-d8… again for steak but a higher end almost international feel restaurant. Anyone of these for a meal will be great and all taxis (use the hotels recommended, or a red taxi with yellow triangles on the door) will know these places. Enjoy your meal, and thanks for visiting our beautiful country.
