“Very genuine”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

We sat down on the terrase just to try the area as it was the first time we had a lunch outside of our hotel. We were really impressed with the food. We had an octopus salad- which was quite big and very delicious and my boyfriend some chicken that he really loved. On top, we got the rissotto to share - it was also delicious, but a bit too much food if you ask me. Or maybe it was my fault as they brought a yammylicious warm bread and butter as a starter and I just couldn't resist it. Overall a very nice experience; and oh, I was about to forget about the service. It was excellent. We will certainly go back.

“Excellent Mediterranean Cuisine”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

Ahhh, the island of Lesvos, Greece. A walk to th eport, A village celebration with fireworks enjoying grilled fresh "pulpo" and wine.

Jump to Maradentro, Escazu, Costa Rica. The memories returned. The octopus was probably even nore flavorful and grilled in the same way. I had is as a hot appitizer, then upon returns that same short week, as a cold saald with grilled octopus, and a meal .

The beef deserave a word, especially for Norte Americanos. Excellent cuts, very flavorful and cooked per order. But, it is high-quality Central American, Argentinian-style beef. If you want here or almost anyplace else "South of the Rio Grande" the high fat content, corn fed, beef, go north my friends, go north.

“Great experience!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

Heard about this new place from a friend. Just a few blocks from where I live. Service is great! Ask for Ronald, he knows his wines. We had Shrimp garlic and mushroom garlic for appetizers, paella, and a bottle of Ruffino Chianti. Everything was great. For dessert, we tried the apple pancake with ice cream and liquor. Nice way to end the night! Best part was the promotion they had where they gave us credit of the amount we spent towards the our next visit!!!! Check them out! Plaza Fresas Curridabat, near Trio and Pops.
