“Nice, warm Peruvian decor.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

After several wonderful days spent at the Vistas Hermosa B&B, near Tambor, we overnighted at the Hampton Inn Hotel near San Jose Airport in Alajuela before heading. We decided to eat at the Rosti Pollo, nearby. It was a cool night and we were seated near the open bar-b-que fireplace, which really felt good and added to the charm of the place. We started with drinks and appetizers and were surprised when a waitress offered corn-on-the-cob as well – all very good. The barbecued chicken was delicious and side dishes tasty. The desert tray still makes my mouth water! It was a surprisingly good eating experience.

“Great BBQ chicken with a Latin flair”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

This was one of the best meals I enjoyed in Costa Rica. I was surprised by the great flavor. And the fried plantains were amazing.

“It was better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

This place was better but lately the service declined and also some plates. Specially if there is too much people at the restaurant, they looked like they couldn't manage it.

“Excellent Chicken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

After 9 nights at Los Suenos resort, we spent our last night at the airport Holiday Inn Express to facilitate our early departure. We decided to eat at Rosti Pollo, the barbecued chicken place across the parking lot. The chicken was delicious. The mashed potato side was good; the salad was ok; the rice was dreadful. The price was right. The food was better than the food at the Marriott at 5x the price. The service was fine.
