“Serendipity!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Walter makes Estres a place to return to - often! He happily welcomes guests and then serves generous portions of very good food. The menu is extensive but if you don't see what you want, Walter will make special dishes,too. The food is fresh and well-prepared, spiced and cooked just right, and served with care.

After my first visit, I was eager to go back, to taste more wonderful flavors. Let's see - the Ceviche de Cameron is fresh and cold, served with some tasty crackers. The Arroz con Pollo is hearty and filling. The Filete Empanizado is just about perfect. I could go on, as everything I tasted was just as it should be!

Sadly, my time in Costa Rica ended and I had to return home, but right now I'm thinking 'I could be there by dinner time-'

This is just the kind of place one hopes to find - good food, warm atmosphere, friendly people. I highly recommend Estres to anyone who is hungry! Tell Walter I sent you.

“Terrific !”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

Loved the Paella dish-very large portion and quite flavorful. Excellent price, great value. Smaller and nicely decorated. Seating available for large families or groups. Looking forward to going back soon.

Walter is warm and welcoming. His food is prepared with love and care. The paella is wonderful as are the fajitas a la plancha. Everthing comes to you fresh and hot. We plan to eat there often!

“Wonderful food, made the way you want it.”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Once we found this small eatery we were hooked. It is now a weekly tradition. Walter the owner does a great job of plating very good meals. If you want something that is not on the menu, breaded fried shrimp for example, Walter will make it for you. The food comes out fresh and hot which is not always the case in many Tico restaurants. Prices are extremely fair for the large portion you get. Walter also speaks english.
