I give this restaurant a five star rating with one small trepidation, i.e., that the server had known something about her wines. We live just 15 min. away from this restaurant and have dined out all over the west end of the Central Valley of Costa Rica. This 'hidden' restaurant is heads above any other restaurant in the region in terms of its rustic ambiance and food. The only real competitor it has is La Galeria Restaurant in Grecia. Evidently, people are driving from as far away as San Jose to dine here.

Recently, our party dined on their grilled steaks and a couple of their Italian offerings. All was cooked to perfection and we can still taste it deliciousness. If you don't know where it is, here's directions you can give to a taxi driver: Del cruce de La Garita y Turrucares 800 mts carretera a Atenas mano derecha. Or call for directions: 2487-6086.

Try their selection of Tempranillo wines for an excellent steak or red sauce match.

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.
