As many have said, the food here may not be what you'd get in Mexico but everything we had was delicious. Portions were good, and the margarita we split was spot on. Very friendly, welcoming staff completed the experience, turning what started out as a "let's just get something quick and get back to the hotel" into a memorable meal... More

Our party of 14 went for lunch. The food was good, and the service was great by Costa Rica standards, but many of the flavors, spices and sauces were sweet. The prices were equivalent to other restaurants in San Jose, so 8 to 18 dollars per plate for lunch.

This is a chain restaurant; my husband and I went to the one in sud Sabana. It is a commercial area, so it was really busy during lunch hour. We were impressed with the prompt service, considering the crowd. Our order of drinks was taken immediately and we got them promptly. The same with the food and in between requests.... More

Service was very good. We had the lunch specials which were priced very reasonably. The lunch tasted fantastic. It's sets outside the door of the Holiday Inn.

The service was friendly but average. It reminds you of a typical mall eatery with no atmosphere. The food is average and the portions generous. If you don't speak Spanish they have an English menu if you request it (it was not offered initially). The prices were above average by American standards and especially for being in Costa Rica in...

We ate at this restaurant last night and the food was very poor. We had two main course dishes which were pretty tasteless, even though a reviewer had highly praised one of them. The food was bland and in one case overcooked. Given the size (and quality) of the dishes and local prices we felt that the restaurant was somewhat... More

The food was very good, the grill for 2 persons were as big to feed 2 adults starving, and everything tasted very good. The attention was fast and efficient, and there were many options on price so you can eat for around usd10. Free wifi was a plus, and side by side there are 3 or 4 more restaurants just... More
