Argentines seem to dominate the scene in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. El Facon is one of those places where they speak with an Argentine accent and grill their beef properly. I went for the fish, and it was fantastic. On top of that they had some very nice mixed drinks and a decent selection of beers. I would certainly return the next time I'm in that area.

Had the catch of the day, Mahi Mahi and it was one of the best meals I’ve had, ever! Purée pumpkin was delicious and the grilled veggies were done perfectly!

Beautiful place, great service, good music, amazing beers and excellent food.
I’ve been at El Facon several times and I never get tired. Every plate is thought of in detail, looks incredible and tastes even better. Definitely my favorite restaurant in town.

Disappointing sadly.. looked great.
Beef short ribs chewy and randomly some meat on tge rib still cold in places?. And chicken meat had to be cooked for a second time as served still very pink and raw.. the place looked great.. menu sounded good.. but sadly not upto others in the area..maybe just a bad night.

Our party of four opted for burgers and steak sandwiches which all came with a mix of plantain and potato chips. Tasty, well filled and good portion sizes. Cocktails were also great. Desserts were ok but not outstanding as coffee on the affagatos wasn't very hot and dulce de leche flan was actually a creme brulee with a separate pour over sauce.

Service was friendly and reasonably efficient. Nice relaxed ambience with decent background music. Bill for four with our mains, dessert and 8 cocktails totalled around £95.
