We had dinner take out from Denny's and it was good. They were quick with the order and the food tasted great. It really hit the spot.

I eat here frequently and did so this morning with a friend. We both ordered Senior Starters. The invoice was presented with a price for an Egg with Cheese Slam, which is about 2,000 colones more for each of us. When I saw this, I questioned our server. All of a sudden she could not speak English. The manager presented... More

very close to the Hampton Inn, offers a wide variety of food. Rather overpriced, but this is Costa Rica and the colones does not go very far. Good service, good food.

Great service and really great food. Delicious big 100% REAL beef burger. Don't go here though if cost is a factor, prices are nuts, crazy high, but oddly not that horrible once you eat the food, its that good! Nothing like what an American would think a Denny's is. Opposite in every way - amazing friendly service, incredible fresh big... More

... they do what they can. The place is worn down, but seemed clean. What is served is not really worth being called food, but I guess that's what you can expect from a Denny's. I only ate here cause my flight was delayed 24h and Condor checked us in the the adjacent BW hotel and gave us food coupons... More

Just okay but it was convenient. Typical Dennys food and seemed expensive but I don't eat at Denny's in US so I have no idea what to expect. Service was good, place was clean. Be aware that they include tip/service fee on bill.

Stopped at Dennys early on my way to the airport. Very bilingual staff and nice enough. The food however was not even average....lots and lots of grease - even more than normal. Prices were twice as high as in the US and 3x or more higher than local. Just a sad welcome or departure to the country. Suggest you plan... More

No matter what Denny's you visit it's the spot for breakfast. The San Jose Airport location is pricey but has a good variety. Very clean with great service.
