We really liked this restaurant. The chicken entrees were excellent. I also had the back bean soup & added chicken to my soup. Super yummy. The guacamole was super good and made fresh.

Four of us stayed at the Holiday Inn Express which had only 3 restaurants in walking distance. We overlooked Denny's, walked out of the Casino Sports Bar and settled for Rosti Pollos. It is very near the noisy highway and airport but that is the price you pay for location. We chose to sit outside as the indoor area was... More

We enjoyed the chicken and the location of this restaurant. I would go back if given the chance. The atmosphere was loud and crowded but was enjoyable.

The title says it all, really. Even with the 10% discount coupon from our hotel, the prices are a bit high for a Denny-level restaurant. The food itself is good but unmemorable. The main advantage of this place is its convenience to the hotels. For the tired traveler, this is a good choice, but it's not for the gourmet.

This is a very old Costa Rican restaurant chain. I don't know how old it is, but it has been around as long as I have been in the country. The restaurants are clean, the service is usually good, and the portions are big (Costa Ricans like to see a lot of food on their plate when they eat out.)... More

As a visiting American and fan of grilled food, this was very good. The grilled chicken was nice, a 1/2 dozen sides to choose from. Yuca Smashed plantains Beans Papa fritas (fries) Salad (fresh) Many fresh toppings and tortillas

When we arrived they were very nice greeting us, sitting us quickly, we had somebody to take our drink orders and her name was Wendolyn, she was very nice to us. The food is traditional Costa Rican food so that's what you have to expect to eat here. My meal had a little bit of everything in these little cups... More

The restaurant is attractively designed and there's additional seating on two patios. The wait staff is professional and personable. The meals are all typical Costa Rican chicken dishes. There are several variations of the national dish, "casado." All were enjoyed by our group of four. We returned to this restaurant four times during our 7-day day stay in Costa Rica.... More
