I have been to many Tony Romas all over the world. I get pretty much the same thing all the time. This was the most expensive one by far. The food was mediocre. I got the ribs and they came out overcooked. No where near fall off the bone that I like. Service was decent.

10 years ago this was a good place to eat with some good servers. Was there this spring and had a long talk with the manager. He agreed with all I said and suggested but it has gotten worse. We will never go back again. Carpets were dirty and coming apart. Service was slow. Food was only fair and my... More

My family went to lunch and we all ordered difrent things. The onion loaf is great and ribs are great too. Everybody enjoyed the food until we got the bill. It was to expensive especially the drinks 2200 colones for a coke with no refill. The price makes you think twice in going back.

The restaurant needs some updating - carpets are stained, tables are wobbly, and all smells a bit musky. Our order was brought wrong several times. I ordered a salad that was supposed to have blue cheese, mushrooms, and beef tenderloin (no cheese, no mushrooms, and severely overlooked meat that definitely was not Tender loin). When I informed the waiter he... More

You get what you expect: a nice bar / restaurant environment, family friendly and with very good service. Good meats and burgers, especially ribs. It's expensive for what it is, but it's still a nice choice when you're around.

Yesterday I took friends here for a taste of American food. We started with an Onion Loaf. I asked for an extra sauce and was surprised by a charge of 750 colones for this. They were very pleased with food but shocked at the bill. One friend ordered a Chicken Panini sandwich, another ordered Beef Ribs and I had Florentine... More

We chose this place on a whim. We were disappointed with the food and the price of the evening. Probably will not be back.
