Had a late afternoon lunch. Our server, Michael was prompt, polite and friendly. The appetizers were very tasty. Our entrees were cooked perfectly (Tuna steak and Chicken Breast). The wine list is extensive and the atmosphere is very good.

The tintos y blancos is in a great area, right outside the multiplaza mall. The wine selection was pretty good and the food very good as well. The patio was great to have dinner at. The only downside perhaps is the space itself is kind of small. Other than that, good restaurant to try out.

This place is a very nice one to try good food and wine. It is Spanish "tapas" style. The wine selection is amazing, with several wines from everywhere around the world. It also has a very nice wine store

In the multiplaza shopping center (near the movie house), this is a worthwhile alternative to the pricey Intercontinental hotel fare. Considers itself a wine bar with food, so wine selections are as good as you would expect, and the food is also very good, particularly the fish. The small outdoor patio is a pleasant experience.

Saw Tintos y Blancos after eating at a different restaurant and decided it looked good. It's both a restaurant and wine shop so the Vinod are good 😀 plus the food, service and atmosphere are excellent. We lucked in on a Friday evening and had the added bonus of 2 guys who played some 80/90s classics and were excellent. Well... More

Terrific little wine bar with superb tapas and wine offerings in the Multiplaza mall outside of San Jose. Specials vary by night, ranging from paella to bbq to assorted tapas -- we were there on tapas night, and every dish was fresh, delicious, and beautifully presented (octopus, salmon, Spanish chorizo, etc.). A nice array of wines (emphasizing Spain/Chilean provenance) is... More

Weenjoyed a great dinner time in family. Local area is very nice, we took a table out in the sidewalk. The attention was very nice and service was very quick. We tried Sangrias, the seafood cazuela and salmon ceviche. We will be glad to come back again.
