“Delicious standby never disappoints!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

My mother in law lives next door to La Casona and we always eat here as soon as possible after our plane lands! Great tipico food and good prices, lightning-fast service and excellent atmosphere. If you are in Escazu, go!

“Nice atmosphere and great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

La Casona is the best spot in San Jose when it comes to price/quality ratio. The menu includes a long list of typical dishes and all those we tried were excellent: try the cheese cubes, ceviche and rice with calamari! The atmosphere is simple and the place is always crowded with locals and some tourists. Prices are really fair and the service is fast (definitely too fast if you are looking for a romantic dinner :-) ) and accurate.

“Best Local food in Escazu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

This is a local place and very casual and a bargain. Not sure anyone there speaks english, but my meal was outstanding. Its a bit of a restaurant/bar atmosphere, like the Chilis of Costa Rica but better food and cheaper and not a chain.
