“This is one of my favorite restaurants in Costa Rica!”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

The food is really special. The presentation and the flavor are unique. They have options that I have not found in other places in Costa Rica. The options for wine are also very good. The service is outstanding. I recommend it.

“Best high end restaurant in town”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

Jurgen has been in the business for several decades and has owned the premier restaurants in San Jose.
Excellent food, varied menu, superb service.

Highly recommended, premier business restaurant in the east side of San Jose. Expensive, but reasonable for what you get.

“Stuck in the 70th”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

Stuffy atmosphere and food stuck in the 70's. Heavy gravies,
and arrogant service.

“Excellent”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

We strolled in expecting very little. We were exhausted from having traveled up from the Caribbean that day. However, we were blown away with the overall quality of our dining experience. The food was outstanding. The service was superb. The presentation was world class. There we were in our baggy fishermen's pants, sandals, and anything but elegant attire, but we were treated like royalty. We didn't even come in planning to eat a full dinner. However, wait staff, the appetizers they enticed us with, the ambiance, the food we saw coming out of the kitchen all seduced us into having a full 3 course dinner, which was superb. Yes, it was expensive, but worth every colones. We have eaten at fine restaurants in many parts of the world, and this place is truly world class. We recommend this place heartily.
