I'm not entirely sure what the 3 star reviews are about.....I will tell you how we saw it: 1. Incredible setting - where can you get that view of San Jose? Few restaurants in the world offer a setting like this. And RUSTIC, not just some 5-star lodge. 2. Incredible food - Don Roberto was right there in the kitchen... More

I came here with customers for dinner and it is obvious that this place gets lots of its income from tour groups, whose meal is included in the cost of their evening and sip on a glass of water while gorping at the extremely average dance show. The views of the city are stunning, the restaurant itself is al fresco... More

After a long day of work in Heredia, my local colleagues told us that there's a restaurant in the mountains that they'd like to take us. The views turned out to be amazing, and so did the food. The cooks in the kitchen make everything fresh, and it definitely has local flavors. Everything we all tried was really tasty, I... More

Second time here and no disappointment. Great Tico food in a perfect setting. The only thing missing was a pad for the chairwhich the owner quickly provided.

We read about the highly recommended Miradors in San Jose and it didn't disappoint! We were greeted by the owner of the restaurant who graciously offered to show us around and shared some of the history of the area including a tour of the kitchen. We heard Tiquicia has the best view.....it was unbelievable! You can see the entire city... More

Adventurous drive to the restaurant with views worth the drive. Good local flavor. New open air deck with table heater. We had great wait staff.

As others on Trip Advisor had said- the view is fabulous. Just don't go there for the food or cocktails. Take the taxi ride up, have a beer, take some photos and get out. The kids in charge of making drinks have no clue what they are doing, the wait staff is decent but can't overcome the average, bland food.... More

This is a wonderful place for typical Costa Rican food and the floor show of folkloric dances is very entertaining. It is a little far up in the hills but worth the drive. The owner is especially friendly and happy to help whatever the need is. We attended a pre-wedding dinner and everyone enjoyed the experience.

You'll be hard pressed to find a better view of San Jose from this typical Costa Rican restaurant. The service is pretty good and the prices are easy on the wallet. It is primarily Costa Rican food, but it is delicious and the portions are good. Bring your appetite and your camera!

My amiga and I were there on a Saturday and thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant. Certainly not a tourist trap as at least 90% of the customers were ticos. The waiter was attentive and courteous. We each had a tamarind steak and they were excellent, with an appetizer and a bottle of wine. The prices were fair for the value that... More
