I was at multiplaza in escazu on Sunday. Decided to have some coffee. The place was packed the servers were slammed with work. The server was very kind and tried her best to supply good service, but it was too crowded. The EXPRESSO coffee I had was excellent, but croissant wasn't as good as it could. Would go back and...

I guess that because of the location, this restaurant is quite expensive in comparisson to the food they serve, when you see the menu you really expect hgh quality food, but the reality is a little different, the ingredients are just average quality and the flavor it´s just ok.

If you like good coffee you should try this place. They have a large variety of desserts and delicious paninis. Also, the salads are great, very tasty. Service is great and the decoration of the place is nice.

There are a few reasons why I like coming back to this place. The service... More

If you want to overpay for regular food this is the place to go. A sandwich that would be $5 elsewhere is $10-12 here. Small chocolate $4 and its gone in 2 zips. I ordered the fried calamari ($10) and got 10 so so pieces so you do the math. My wife ordered a smoked salmon sandwich and it was... More
