Everything about this evening was perfect at this contemporary Steak House located just outside San Jose. The steaks were well aged, well seasoned, and perfectly cooked. Warning: The portions are large so go easy on the side dishes. We finished the night with a really great Panna Cotta.

Everything was great, starting with the place and the atmosphere, the attention to details and the food. Recommended if you are looking for a well cooked piece of meat.

Visited for second time a few years after the first. Didn't impress as much as first time but still a good place for decent upmarket steaks and well-prepared accompaniments with solid, reasonably-priced wine list. Went for the Brazilian-style Picanha which was full of flavour but struggled to finish it due to rich flavour. Would recommend sharing one between two. Comes... More

Great steak house in Santa Ana, where not only the meat is delicious but their salads and fish dishes. My last visit I ordered the corvina, so fresh and tender. Service is good, bar scene can be good during weekends. Don’t skip the warm bread and the roasted eggplant with tejina, an Israeli dish that wins over anything in their... More

Great food and decor. Nice relaxed setting to enjoy a nice conversation. Definitely the chef knows what he is doing. Well trained staff. One of the top restaurants in Costa Rica for sure.

A place to be said pricey but the meat is outstanding. We recommend meat above all! and the bread is also delicious! Also, its wine menu is very good.

I came to this restaurant looking for the best place to celebrate my mother's birthday. I couldn't have chosen a better place. The service that we received was the top of its class. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. The food was exquisite! I was blown away by the plate that I ordered (Chateaubriand). It came with a wonderful green salad... More

Went with my wife with a fine dining experience in mind. They did not disappoint. The food was amazing and the service was above par. It is not for the budget minded, so maybe you can save this place for those special occasions. I ordered the New York steak and it was huge! The wine list is really nice and... More

With a keen focus on quality meats, Doris pushes the bar higher than most restaurants with similar fare. The quality menu and 5-star hospitality are topped only by the passion of their chef and his staff to produce succulent steaks and amazing accompaniments. Please continue your great tradition and accept my thanks for a wonderful experience.
