The best french cuisine in San José. We've dined here a number of times and it is one of my favorite restaurants. The atmosphere is warm, dim lit, and sophisticated. You can tell this is not a coincidence and expert interior design was involved. The same about the food. You can savour the wisdom behind your plate. French tradition along Costa Rican ingredients create such a rich fusion. Try the tropical fish, DAMN! and the desserts...to die for. I think the crème bruleé is not on the menu, but they'll make it for you. Also the wine, they have a wide international sellection of reds and whites slightly chilled to the perfect temperature to drink.
In terms of pricing, it's a bit steep, but you'll know where that money went after your first bite.

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.

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.

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