“Exorbitant”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

The food is OK, but my son and I spent $40 for 2 mediocre burgers. We were staying at the holiday inn next door since a flight delay meant we missed our Interbus van to Monteverde, and the next pickup by greyline was the next morning at the Inn. I would definitely recommend a taxi to Alajuela center for a better cheaper meal at a soda.

“Denny's”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Service was good, but prices exhorbatant. Location was close to hotel and that was convenient. Recommend more local restaurants than US chains.

“Typical Fare - Good Service”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

The food was typical of Denny's but certainly overpriced for Costa Rica. We had a very good server who was helpful and provided an allergen list which was appreciated. Convenient for both Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn airport hotels.

“Insanely pricy!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

We stopped at Denny's after our red-eye arrival to SJO, on our way to Manuel Antonio.
The Slams are $13 US each!!! (6500 CRC).

Since we have just arrived, The exchange rate didn't sink in yet.

We ended up spending $60 US for a breakfast for four. That's crazy.

And the food was not even at Denny's level.

“Just another restaurant”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Quite expensive, but with a lot of dishes to choose.
Clean
The crew wasn't really friendly.
Very useful if you are staying in one of the hotels around.
