I try to visit the place if in San Jose. This particular iteration, while the food was still good, their signature options (like the pork ribs or chicharrón), were not as good as they used to be. Expensive for this kind of restaurants but our waitress (Wendy) made the difference...

We went here for a group dinner while attending a team meeting in San Jose, Costa Rica. While it is more expensive than our normal meal, the quality of meats were outstanding. The service was also very good with friendly staff and responsive service. The desert table is another attraction though we were all too full to eat more desert.

The open dining area was bright and welcoming. They offer a salad bar that has everything you need for a salad and more; breads, salad fixings, sushi. At the table, when you are ready for meat, flip your coin from red to green and within mere moments a server comes by with a cut of meat that they slice off a cut onto your plate. The meat is tender and the seasonings delicious. Before I could finish one cut, another server was there with another cut of meat. We were served chicken, sausage, steaks of all cuts. Ever single offering was amazing. If you want a specialty drink, a server will come by on a cart and hand mix your drink with fresh ingredients at your table. After the salad and meat gorge, a dessert cart is available for you to peruse as well. The server was willing to cut two options in half for me so that I could try two options, I could not make up my mind. Both were tasty!

The best meat I have ever tasted outside of Brazil, fine cuts, unparalleled flavor, extensive salad buffet and many options, excellent service and an education of envy, I recommend to Brazilians who come for a trip to Costa Rica and feel like eating an excellent BBQ.
