“lunchtime favorite”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

reasonably priced corner restaurant with lots of charm. we usually share a steak and get a salad and one of their apps. close to the national museum of art and la sabana and around the corner from the Parque de Lago hotel, a great place to stay if you want to be in the city.

“Best dinner of the 2 week trip”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

Great dinner. Live guitarist, fair drink and meal prices. Music was not needlessly loud. Pies were superb, steak, chicken meals also. Spanish menus only, and the server barely spoke English, which was actually very fun and the way it should be.

“Great food, reasonable prices”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

As some of you may have noticed, meal prices in CR are considerably higher when compared to other cities in the region. This restaurant offers great food at reasonable prices, nice casual ambiance for lunch or dinner. One of my new favorite Argentinian restaurants in San Jose.

“Never Disappointing”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

I have been to Aqui Es four times in the past couple of years and it continues to be one of my favorite, funky little restaurants for several reasons. First of all it's just on the edge of the city making it easy to get to, the service has always been 1st rate and the food has never disappointed me. The empanadas delicious, the pizza fantastic and we recently just had the sweetbreads that were really tasty. The food comes out in a timely manner and the prices are fair. And... there is a small bar you can sit at if you so desire. This should be in the top 10 of restaurants in the city of SJO in my opinion.
