“Great settle on top of mountain. Must see Bar and chapel.”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Food is not inexpensive but setting is wonderful and food is great especially around Holidays. The bar downstairs is great too. One of my favorites and most of my friends.

This was the first restaurant that my husband and I went to on our honeymoon in Costa Rica. The views were tremendous, food was excellent and the staff was wonderful. I would highly recommend!

“Amazing view”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Romantic! Great food. Haven't been there in a long time though. I remember it was pricey, but it;s worth it because the view on a clear day is breath taking

“Good food!”

It is located in a very nice place. NIce view of the city. The food and service are very good. The portions are a little small and prices are high.
