We stopped here on our final night in Costa Rica due to staying near by with an early am flight. The food is absolutely horrible. I got the tacos which were said to have a secret hot sauce- they were smothered in soggy lettuce and mayonnaise. The taco shells were very burnt and the portions extremely small. I told the... More

It's got a fun, open-air atmosphere. It's in a mall and you can walk between it and the several other restaurants in the mall. Small tequila section, but good representation. A little pricey ($20 USD for a shot of Patron). Then, after we'd bought a round of shots at $20 USD per shot, they offered us a special on the... More

Our party of 4 adults and 2 small children were met by a gentleman with a large umbrella to shield us from the hot midday sun. (The ladies and children got to enjoy that shade for the short walk to the entrance. I enjoyed Camerónes de la Diable. When the waitress asked if I wanted the sauce on the side,... More

The food is good, not great. Service is pretty good. Recommended! Try the gringa and the horchata. Very good! The spicy sauces are not that spicy

San José is very expensive for a city that lives way behind many things. The price is an issue here.

I visited the Tacontento restaurant a few days a go, I went for a late lunch and enjoyed the visit.
