“Los Anonos, Great "tico" cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

Despite the title, "Tico Cuisine" is a bit of an exaggeration. But Los Anonos is an exelent restaurant. In any case. We were referred informally by staff at our hotel. Thanks to the gps, we had no problem in driving into the ample parking lot. Obviously it is a place where well-to-do locals go frequently, but there was also a large, happy table celebrating a birthday or an office outing. The place is so big that this party, while loud as we walked by, didn't interfere at all with the rest.

Their beef and fish are of great quality and that's most of what's on the menu. Some nice appetizers and a good wine selection. The waitresses cover a big range in ages and it shows that they are comfortable doing their job, showing that this place is traditional. Not cheap but what it's what you would expect. You won't faint.

While close to San José downtown, you might want to go by taxi if you are not comfortable driving. In any case, GO.

“Anonos is a Costa Rican Original”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2012

This restaurant is very good. It was originally a carne (meat) stand that catered to passerbys. I love the New York Strip (national) done medium. My wife loves the tenderloin Fajitas. We stick to national meats and stay away from US and Imported beef. The service is excellent and the waitresses have years of experience. We go frequently and usually choose to sit in The Original Dining Room.

“Steak and more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2012

Medium priced steakhouse. There were many different cuts offered, and our party tried several. I heard no complaints from anyone. Mine was cooked to my prederence, and was excellent.
