Stopped in for a bite to eat before a long day of sight seeing. We ordered the French toast, pancakes, cafe latte and cafe Americana. Really liked the design of the place and will want to come back for dinner the next time we're in town. The food was good as well as the coffee. Definitely recommend.

Our favorite place to visit in Costa Rica! Excellent food in a romantic setting with excellent service! They've gone out of their way to make sure I wouldn't receive any food containing my food allergies.

Good tacos at a reasonable price. Fresh ingredients, fast service, salad/condiment bar was also a great addition.

Casual dining - you place your order at the front and they deliver it to your table. The salad bar has many choices and everything is fresh. Super prices - a real deal for the San Jose, Santa Ana area!

Tacobar is always one of my favorite choices for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The environment is charming, the food is always taste and helpful staff. They always have new and good options in the menu! Also, one of my favorite galo pinto in CR!

Several good craft beer options to choose from! I had fish tacos, my husband had the chicken. You receive the basic plate with your protein and then you build it from there at the taco station. Great concept. Food was pretty good. The service wasn't all that great which is why I gave it a 3 rating. Perhaps is was... More

The place is dirty. The service I experienced was shocking as the employees seemed to be unhappy with their jobs. The food lost it's traction, plates are no longer well presented, portions are smaller. Parking lot was also dirty.
