I was surprised to read some negatives about the service. I've eaten here several times and never had a problem with the service. Someone said the wine was sweet. They offer two red house wines, one is sweet and the other is not. Order the vino tinto y seco, if you want a dry red. My husband and I went to Valentine's dinner with some friends. The men had the black angus steak, my friend had a NY steak and I had the beef stroganoff. We were all pleased. I've never seen stroganoff on a menu in Costa Rica and this was delicious. It was served over rice rather than noodles, but otherwise it was as good as any stroganoff I've had anywhere in the States. We were all happy with the quality of the beef, tender, and cooked to order. I'm from California wine country and not too easy to please when it comes to wine, but their dry red is quite drinkable. I can't speak for the sweet or any of their whites.
In the past, we've enjoyed their ribs and their Imperial Chicken (Pollo Imperial). We've never had a bad dinner or bad service. We'll go back soon. Highly recommended!

Had a wonderful dinner at this restaurant located to the west of Alajuelo, the city. It is situated in a small house with both indoor and outdoor seating. Gardens next door and view of sunset through the trees. Very friendly staff and great steaks. i ordered a filet mignon and it took up most of my plate. Huge and delicious. Came with a mushroom wine sauce which surprised me but it added to the meal. Baked potatoe and salad also included. My husband had beef stroganoff which was excellent and plentiful. Sangria was ordered by the glass but each glass came with a little pitcher that gave me at least 3 extra glasses. Filled with fruit and very good. They make their own wine. Cost was 29,000 colones which is less than $60. Highly recommend if you are in the area. Not far off the Pan American Highway.
