Great place. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. You can sit at the bar, eat and chat all night here. Very comfortable upscale place.

Went to dinner last night with a colleague from work. Great ambiance and food, but found it very pricey for what you get.

Hermoso lugar, te transporta a épocas antiguas. Una Casona Costa Ricense preciosa.
La atención buena, no espectacular... normal.
La comida exquisita. Pedimos Solomillo con salsa de Trufa y el Chateaubriand. vienen acompañados de unas verduras al dente y un pure magnifico. Grandes las porciones, se puede pedir un primero para compartir y compartir el segundo.
Sopa de Pejivalle, buenisima.
De entrada el salmón con un aroma de Vainilla. No estaba muy bueno el Pate... era muy artesanal. si os gusta de este tipo perfecto.
Postre Creme Brule.
Tienen muy buenos vinos. Costosos eso si
Beautiful place, transports you to ancient times. A beautiful old house Costa rica.
Attention good, not spectacular ... Normal.
The food exquisite. We took tenderloin with truffle sauce and Chateaubriand. Come with vegetables and mashed potatos magnificent. Large portions, so you can order a first for share and also share the second plate.
Pejivalle soup,very good is typical in Costa Rica.
The salmon with vanilla flavor... delicious. I was not very good the Pate (Foi) ... was very traditional. if you like this kind of will be perfect.
Creme Brule Dessert.
Good Wine ... expensive like in all places in Costa Rica
