Great location, poor food quality and drinks for such a high price !
Went here because the reviews were good & I'd never been. Needless to say, I will never return. Place was empty, but waitress/(co-owner?) made comment that not to worry b/c it was empty, sometimes it scares people off, but she had a big reservation for 9pm. I wasn't planning on turning around b/c it was empty, but maybe i should have!
Appetizer: Trio de Mariscos Ceviche. The Yucca fries that came on top of this were the best part, the ceviche was so-so (i make better at home!) and it was $11 for a martini glass full. We didn't get any spoons or crackers/bread/chips to eat it with and the yucca fries were thin so you couldn't actually put the ceviche on them
Drinks: I ordered a Mango Margarita to drink: ($7) it came out soooo sour that I had to send it back (tasted like a sh*tload of lime juice or sour mix). It came back diluted with more mango and triplesec. At least it tasted more like mango, not so much like margarita. And it even had some mango skin pieces in it. I couldn't even finish it ~ bleh
Shawn ordered Merlot~ smart choice, since you can't screw that up
Main courses: My bf ordered the Casado (typical Tico dish of meat, rice, beans, yucca, fried plantains, salad )b/c it came with a quality cut of meat, tenderloin. The portions of sides didn't even compare with other places for the price and were not as good as everywhere else we've been. As for the meat he was so excited for, they drenched it in steak sauce, and the meat (i had a bite) itself was less than appetizing. For $15 for a casado this was crap.
I got the seafood pasta (mussels, calamari, clams, shrimp). $25 for a plate, not much food. The sauce was good, but the mussels & calamari were overcooked and rubbery. No sides.
By this time, we definitely did not want to see what was in store for dessert, so we skipped it and got the check. $83 later (!!) we peaced out
This place needs some SERIOUS Quality Control & needs to drop their prices
p.s. We left at 9:20, and the place was still empty...so much for her reservations, or maybe she said that to keep us there
Oh, & they played crappy N*Sync/Backstreet Boys type music :/
