    Got tilapia and crab risotto, the tomato flavor was super tasty with chunks in it. Nice ambience, generous portion, and more pricey than other Costa Rican restaurants.

    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.

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

    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.

    The risotto with squash was great, you should try it! Chicken breast was ok. Next time i would take more Risotto and quit the chicken.

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

    Está es un grata sorpresa, todo lo que pedí fue un contraste de sabores acompanados de un buen vino y de un risotto que en la carta parecía la típica gringada....pero al llegar era refinado y sabroso

    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.
