Quiet on the patio on a Sunday mid afternoon. Waiter (David) was very friendly and attentive. We had the rib eye steak with salad and vegetables. Very satisfied. Reasonable price for a steak meal. Convenient location just north of the auto mercado.

This is a steakhouse located near Alajuela downtown. Their menu is focused on steak but offer some dishes for those who want to have something different from steak. For me, it is one of the best steakhouses in the country. I would like to see...More

We stopped here not knowing what to expect as we hadn't researched the place. It turned out to be one of the best meals we had during our week of vacation in Costa Rica. Can totally recommend this place. Excellent food, excellent service.

Situated just outside Alajuela heading north, this restaurant is worth seeking out for great steak. The steaks are huge and full of flavour. My favourite is the Angus, but the sirloin is also excellent. The pitcher of Sangriha is also worth trying-full of fruit and...More

I went to this place 3 years ago or so when they were in their old, small location. Wow, they have really picked up the service. Absolutely the best grill spot in Alajuela now. Take a taxi to it if you are staying in town...More

Loved it! Sent there by the nearby Pura Vida Hotel, had a great first dinner in Costa Rica. We ordered a special parilla plate for two that had chicken, ribs, steak, and chorizo along with a salad with brilliant dressing and some roast potatoes. We...More
