Review of Hacienda El Estribo - CLOSED

Hacienda El Estribo
Cuisines: American
Description: Hacienda El Estribo is located on the old road that runs between Santa Ana and Escazu towns in Costa Rica. These 2 towns have a lot of expats and/or tourists that stay when they have to stay in San Jose area. The bar is run by an American and offers a range of local/import beer, food covers the gamut of American bar fare - hamburgers, wings, quesidillas, nachos, fish & chips, but also has some local Costa Rican flare. The sports bar has multiple plasma TVs and all sports - hockey, basketball, UFC etc are played daily. There is an adjoining restaurant that is more family-oriented.

Reviewed May 11, 2011

My husband and I were traveling in Costa Rica and was staying in the Escazu area. We just happened to stumble upon Estribo while looking for a place to eat. Much to my husband's delight, it's a sports bar! There were a bunch of TV screens with different sports on, typical American food menu (burgers, hot dogs, chicken fingers, etc) and some local fare. We had the pizza which was quite good. Full bar menu with local and imported beer and a pool table. Prices seemed fair for the area (Costa Rica isn't as cheap as some people imagine) There is also a restaurant next door that I think is more for families with children. Met Dave the owner from Texas who was full of info on what to do and where to get what we wanted before we left Costa Rica. He's lived in Costa Rica for years so was very helpful and knowledgeable.
