Very expensive for small portions. The food itself was tasty and nicely presented, but not worth the cost - especially for the tiny portion sizes. Pleasant atmosphere, especially at the bar. Not very consistent quality. The first margarita I had was the best one I've ever tasted, the second (and last one I had there) was not good at all.... More

The courtyard setting for this restaurant is stunning. The menu is not extensive but still offers a good variety of options including seafood, pastas, and grilled or roasted meats. Service was prompt. The fine oyster bar adds a whole new dimension to the restaurant. This is a great spot for a romantic repast or for fine dining with friends.

Slow on the coffee and food delivery, but lovely setting and excellent staff and tasty breakfast options. Intimate family wedding the day before and we took over the restaurant on Sunday morning. Just the most welcoming and lovely staff, it's hard to give the service bad marks. I think we overwhelmed the kitchen and that the slow food delivery table... More

Thank you so much for sharing your comment and we are pleased that you had a nice experience overall ...even so they were a little slow on the service. The wedding night from the night before was certainly a little part of them being slower but we hope we will see you again soon! Muchas Gracias Nathalie Buchler & staff More

We love the food, service and atmosphere at Mi Cocina. This is a must do while in San Jose! The grilled ceasar salad and the beet salad are terrific. Also iced the catch of the day.

This open air restaurant was in our hotel (Casa Natalia). It occupies an outdoor patio with views of the palm tree garden and the sound of the waterfalls. While the food is not top notch it is fine and the staff are excellent. A fine place to relax and enjoy the evening.

Casa Natalia's restaurant gave us among the best meals we've had in Mexico. A beautiful outdoor courtyard setting with attentive and very skilled staff.

While visiting San Jose, we came here for lunch with another family. It was a Monday and very quiet. The service was incredibly slow but the food and margaritas were good. Not really much else to say.
