Everything was great in Grano de Oro Restaurant. The food is creative, original (not easy to find this in San Jose). The service is excellent (you can see there is "school" there). The atmosphere is elegant, and warm. Fully recommended

One of the best meals in San José. The courtyard is lovely and quiet. The restaurant is part of a hotel which doesn’t always bode well for quality but the steaks were excellent, great cocktails and very nice service.

We especially enjoyed lunch in the lovely atrium outdoor restaurant at the Grano de Oro in San Jose. Crepes and salad, then crème Brule for dessert. Such a relaxed atmosphere and excellent service.

I asked them about this when I had breakfast today. They have 2 lunch menus. The first starts at 11AM. Then at 2:30 they switch to a "mid afternoon" menu. They use that until 3 or 4 PM.
