“How much meat can you really eat?”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

It's definitely one of the best restaurants of its kind. Service was good, salad bar offered sushi. Meat was fine but not extraordinary.

“Excellent food but pricey”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

Amazing selection of meats, and variety of cold dishes and salads. A bit on the pricey side compared to cheap meals that can be obtained at Mercado Central in San Jose .... but a worthy experience. Waiters are very helpful to explain the meat cuts. Excellently grilled.

“The Place to Splurge”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

it's true, the $56US(+/-) price tag is stiff, especially for lunch, but I had a craving for the amazing salad bar that puts all others in Costa Rica to shame. All veggies were fresh and well presented, with a selection of sushi rolls that were very flavorful. I could have just had the salad, but there is not adjusting the price, the Brazillian style meats were the feature. Tried several pieces, but really enjoyed the garlic beef, very tender and delicious, lamb and chicken were OK, the sausage was a mystery, didn't enjoy it. The wait staff were very attentive, brought a small dessert for the 3 of us to try, then loitered after the bill was presented (probably to grab the tip) which I didn't appreciate. Overall a place I like to go when just any old salad won't do, just have to save my allowance to make the trip. Been here a few times, good place to show off who you are with, this time was business, and the restaurant has it's fair share of business people. Will go back despite the price.
