Only there for one dinner, so it's hard to make a judgement on only one experience. Located in the Intercontinental Hotel, so really convenient for dinner after a tiring day. Two adult couples, all very satisfied with the food. Ceviche, tuna, carpaccio, club sandwich, salads, all prepared and presented beautifully. So why only a "very good" rating? The service was...

The best thing about this place is it's open 24 hours. Food is average. My first two visits resulted in me sending back my food 3 times.

Great place, even better service! Ask for a table in the terrace if you want a nice view. The Brie salad with extra salmon is a must. Trying something new from the menu is always a good idea.

The Market offered a tremendous breakfast buffet. The food was fresh and plentiful. The wait staff were very friendly. I also had lunch at the restaurant and it was delicious. I would recommend the Market if staying at the Intercontinental.

The Intercontinental hotel is superb, amazing, well located, many restaurants, best spa, gym, view and service. The Market was not as good. I ordered Pasta with seafood spice and was not spicy and not to good. I rarely drink bloody mary; but wanted one.../do not try. No ice, probably from a pre-done one, no celery, not spicy...was a Saturday and... More

The only place in Avenida Escazu to buy groceries, this place has all the basics, from cereal to cheese and ham to frozen foods to wine. You can also get a good hot lunch or build a salad. Very popular with local workers.
