Very accommodating staff in terms of your specific requirements for the food and they seem to go the extra mile. Large number of American customers - probably from the numerous US companies nearby. The fish was fresh - the Peruvian desert with condensed milk worth trying again. Overall a pleasant evening and experience.

Was invited for a business lunch at La Divina Comida and found this restaurant to be outstanding. Great atmosphere, knowledgeable / engaged service and outstanding food. The selection of Ceviche and Tiraditos was impressive. They also have a business lunch which is fast and with a great selection. What a treat. Cannot comment on the beverage menu

Staff was great, food was delivered promptly and drinks were always kept full. The food itself was decent but I feel a little overpriced. In all fairness I feel this way about most restaurants in San Jose, they easily have the worst quality dining options of any capital city in Central America. Most countries in Central or South America you... More

Love this place. The food is amazing, and the service is great. Prices are in line with what to expect for the zone, and in my opinion, the food is the best on Ave Escazu (I spend on average $30-50 for a dish with a drink and maybe a coffee).

Great restaurant all around. Amazing food, great service, great decor, cool location, good drinks! I've been here twice, once for business and once on a dinner date with my husband and both times had a great dinning experience.
