This is the type of restaurant, in which if you are backpacking, and can not spend a lot of money but want to have a nice dinner once in a while, you can go to.

As a backpacker, it's always about "panini" and fruits lol..but I would love to find this type of restaurant when I'm travelling around.

The service is really good, the prices not so bad, and the food is really good. The atmosphere it's what I love the most, this is an old house made it into a good taste restaurant.

The location is great, as is in the middle of San Jose, but a nice area though :)

I always have taken my national and international friends there, and I haven't heard a complaint ( Thank Baby Jesus lol)

So, YES, totally recommend it!

Cheers!

We often eat out at Café Mundo, especially when we have something to celebrate! It's located in the old sector and has lovely surroundings and décor so you feel you're part of a rambling old house and the stories that go with it!

Café Mundo is close to Hotel Aranjuez, our favorite San Jose hotel, that happens to NOT have a dining service so we often stroll down to Café Mundo, hoping it won't be too busy! We enjoy the varied menu though the prices are definitely a bit above average. However, given the location and the attention to clientele by having a good number of waiters, this is probably understandable.

Romantic and artsy! Always a good night out!

I enjoy Café Mundo a lot. I have dined there several times and find the daily lunch specials to be very pleasing. The dinners are also very fine. The location is perfect and the ambiance of Café Mundo is hard to beat. A good choice for San Jose dining.
