Cafe Mundo is located in a old, Victorian house, that has a nice atmosphere. The selection of the food is very tasteful. I also enjoyed the wonderful bread, that they give you. I have dine at Cafe Mundo, serveral times and I recommend eating there.

The rooms are many with interesting mod deco. It's a mixed crowd. The soup and bread makes a good modest meal. We visited three times. A good night place to have a friendly conversation

The place is just beatiful and very well decorated. The food was good as well but the service was initially good but at the end they started to rush us up because they had to shut down (at ten p.m). We recommend to go there at weekends.

There is no other place like Café Mundo in Costa Rica. The best place in one of the emblematic neiborhoods in downtown San Jose. Beautiful gardens, different environments: restaurant, group meetings, and a new wonderfull bar: Shangrila. In all of them you can choose what kind of place you want to stay, indoors or outdoors....
The service is specially good, they are always waiting for your needs. It is also a nice place because of the music: is not loud and from all parts of the world. Wonderfull!!!!
The food is one of the best you can find in Costa Rica. As much of the commets say: first the home-made bread. Delicious!!!! And then all the menu and special foods of the day are awsome. I love rosted tomatoes and black olives pizza, as well the best ceasar salad in town. Meats are also very good, and fishes so fresh and in different and original presentations..
You must look the completly new kitchen, with the maximus standars in quality and hygiene controls, like no other restaurant in the city. Now you don't have to worry of all bad comments they posted in early 2011, when they were building the new kitchen.
Prices are spected for the quality of the food, service and special environmet. Love it!!!!
