Great seafood and ceviche. Courteous and helpful staff. Well worth a visit if you stay in one of the hotels nearby (with restaurants that have less good food and are in the same price range.

I was concerned that It might be challenging to find wonderful food choices for my mostly vegetarian spouse during our recent trip to Costa Rica. We found the perfect place. Great service and suggestions from our waiter, Wilbur. We ordered salmon carpaccio, chef's ceviche and parihuela soup, topped off by a vanilla creme passionfruit chocolate cup! Highly recommend you give... More

We went there with big expectations, sadly the food was quite average, The leche de tigre didn't convince me at all, the octopus was overcooked and the sweet and sour tuna didn't do tit for me either. On the bright side we had a good waiter and some nice and red wines. Overall, I might add that I found it... More

Good afternoon Mr. Albert J F, First of all let me apologize if the experience is not satisfactory. We do take great pride on what offer (both food and service) saying that I must insist on why you didn't say anything to your waiter (which by protocol should approach the table and see if everything is fine). We have no... More

Like many great restaurants in San Jose, Restaurante Pescatore is in a weird location in a small mall area close to the Multiplaza. Once inside, it is tastefully designed and serves great food. I opted for a selection of appetizers - grilled octopus (which was wonderfully prepared -- soft and flavorful on the inside and crispy and charred on the... More

The food is great, specially the tiraditos. Nice environment and the best of all the service. Fast, friendly and amazing attention from all the waitresses. Price is very fair for the quality.

The food is literally incredible, the courtesy of the staff and the creativity of the chef are terrific. I think the location might use some improvement and the position is not super easy to reach from San Jose center and from airport/business area - but worth the 10 dollars uber ride for such dishes

Please note: Cevice Piangua is absolutely the best one can ever have. Ceviche a la piedra was also great. Octapus and tuna tartare were four stars each.

Excellent food and super friendly staff. We were seated in a more of an outdoor space, unfortunately the dining room was filled with nothing but men. BUT the food was very delicious . Portions were great. The risotto with sea bass and lobster was wonderful. So tasty! Highly recommend the Lima salad with octopus and shrimp..just excellent. My friend had... More

I was recommended this Restaurant by a renowned Chef in London...it didn't disappoint, we went on a Sunday night only to find it buzzing with plenty of locals(always a good sign), the owner gave a very slick but attentive front of house service and his staff were excellent. Not only were there plenty of delicious dishes on the menu but... More
