Don Manuel opened my 22 year old bottle of Spanish Wine (Reserva Navarro) with great care, explaining in detail the particulars of removing an aged cork. Proceeded by pouring wine into two decanters, thereby allowing sediment (due to aging) to settle at the bottom of one decanter. Excellent explanation of the nuances of the wine its "legs" and the reason... More

Slightly over priced. Food is good, but considering you can get equally great food for a fraction of the price at the bottom of the hill, you have to accept that your paying for the view.

Fantastic view of the city, excellent positioning of the tables, made more enjoyable by opening the sliding windows. Manuel explained the incoming fog and how it would dissipate with the breeze, allowing the enjoyment of the panoramic view. We enjoyed the Mixed Antipasto, along with a fine bottle of Merlot. All in all, a very enjoyable experience...

I visited this restaurant with my date. The view was amazing and the service great. The dinner was great too, although I paid $100+ for a dinner for two it's a bit too much. We definitely had a blast here.

Great view from this restaurant. Had lunch which was very good. The prices were on the high side but the service was good. Little advice.... If you are driving up there, make sure you have a 4 wheel drive under you. We're talking 45 degree inclines.

This is for sure one of the best views we ever head in restaurant. The whole city San Jose is lying in front of you, it doesn't matter if you come at day when you can see the volcanoes or at night when you see all the lights. If you expect a high class restaurant this is maybe not the... More

Took visiting family members here, and as all reviews say... the view is outstanding! I recommend getting a reservation for 5:30pm, so you can see the Central Valley views while the sun is still up, and then quickly transforms by 6pm to a beautiful, twinkling light panoramic night-time view. Service was very friendly (Manuel was outstanding), and the abbreviated menu... More

I had the lobster bisque, and the reputation stands true. Great! The filet mignon was a bit overdone but still tasty.
