An outstanding meal! Our server, Roman, was a very classy waiter who took extra effort in all things to make our dinner a fabulous experience. He made excellent recommendations on local and regional beers, which we thoroughly enjoyed.

I ordered the grilled octopus and completely loved it. It was tender and flavorful. My colleague ordered the squid ink risotto which was outstanding. Dessert was the flaming chocolate cupcake.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.

Thank Dennis H

Waited 20mins to order though the place was naturally not busy at 5pm on Sat. Then waited 15mins to be able to ask for the bill. Pricy. Food was good, but experience not.

Really enjoyed our evening dining in a balmy climate, convivial company and great dishes. Ordered the tuna tartare, yucca fries and conchitas Parmesan scallops done on their shells at gratin - fresh and delightful tasting variations of spices and herbs. For mains we ordered the grilled seafood which had octopus, squid, scallops, clams, lobster, mussels, shrimp on a layer of yucca - excellent! A crispy Catena Argentinian Chardonnay was excellent match for the seafood. Other dishes served were lobster brochettes and prawn in panko. Lemon suspiro and mousse naracuya
cream desserts finished us off! Excellent service by Jesus and great dining ambiance in this elegant but not overdone decor restaurant. The final bill was close to $270 which included no drinks, one bottle of wine, three starters, four main courses, two desserts, 13% TVA tax and automatically included 10% service, somewhat pricey in the general scheme of the Costa Rica economy!

A good friend of mine who is an resident and business owner in San Jose took me there for dinner while I was in town doing business. Very happy I went there! Delicious seafood pasta and exceptional wine list

Great Food. Good selection of Peruvian style Ceveiches. Seafood is the specialty here. Our group of 15 was nicely accommodated on a large outdoor (covered) patio. Service was spot on; we never starved for attention from the waitstaff.

Try Ceviche and any of the Seabass selections. You will not be disappointed.
Wine list is average to above average. Prices a bit high for Costa Rica but restaurant is upscale enough and food quality oustanding so it supports the price point.

I would return here every opportunity I get.
