This restaurant used to be one of the best in Costa Rica by many people's accounts. Don't know why, but over the last 5 years the quality as waned, and the food is not superior as it once was. We adore peruvian food, however the food here is not even close to as good as it used to be. You can get an OK meal here now, but the seasoning and balance of flavors is lacking and could be much much better. We didn't have a bad experience, but the food in the last 3-4 years has just been ho-hum. Not the treat that it used to be.

We walked to this restaurant from Grand d'Oro hotel. The food was excellent and we lover our Pisco Sours. It reminded us of our Peruvian travels. We had a fish dish and grilled octopus appetizer, both of which were great.
