    If you enjoy spicy food there are some great choices for you here.

  • Jenny L.

    Didn't eat, but the Tico Sours were very good. Looked more upscale and catered to tourists.

    Tom Yum soup is fantastic! Even found it spicy and I am Indian!

    Try the Casado as main course. And los ceviches as first course. Excellent!

    Great place to watch the Independence Day Parade

    Ordered Rib Eye, it's very poor and doesn't worth trying.

    I rate fillet mignon 4 out of 5, a bit overdone for medium, but still quite juicy!

    I had the #40 and it was mad decent. The ceviche appetizer was just so-so. good quality food overall. Everyone in our party happy with their meals.

    Lemon scented Tilapia with crab and red pepper risotto is amazing. And it pairs well with a fresh Caiparinah and the Cevicé starter.

    Great place to sit at the bar looking towards the street. It has a diverse menu but not your best best for authentic Costa Rican food. You can see more tourists eating here than locals.

    The mushroom lasagne is the best one I've ever had. This meal has been the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica.

    Quite possibly the best ribeye I've ever had. Tuna tartar was outstanding as well. Order your steak one temp under what you actually want it to be. Best meal we had in Costa Rica.

    La verdad es que no nos gustó mucho. Quizás nos equivocamos al pedir, pero la parrillada de marisco era un poco justa y el ceviche no estaba muy fresco.. El postre estuvo bien y la atención también.
