“Highly regarded by locals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

twice people I was meeting suggested going there, so it must have a good local reputation. Seemed pleasant rather than wonderful, food and particularly drinks a bit over-priced but you pay for the safe calm atmosphere I guess.

“My favorite place for hanging out with friends!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

Lovely and beautiful restaurant that takes place in an old beautiful house in San José downtown. The food is wonderful and coktails too!!! They have the best desserts and the best bread in San José. Besides you can go to the lounge that is located besides the restaurant called Shangri-la that is the best!!!

“Lovely garden, thoroughly mediocre food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014 via mobile

The location in Barrio Amón is nice, the garden is pleasant. While the food was not bad I do not care to have any more of it...

“Lively and fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

This is an excellent choice if you're staying in or near downtown San Jose. We had a friendly server, and the pace of service was definitely reasonable, given the size of the crowd in the restaurant. The location is in a good neighborhood in San Jose. And they'd got a quite expansive menu, with many standard Tican dishes along side all sorts of other things (e.g., pastas). Overall, it's a lively, friendly place with good, although not spectacular, food.
