Great selection of wines, nice atmosphere & the food was delicious. The prices are reasonable and the service was excellent. I ordered the caprina salad (really yummy) and rose sangria (ok) , my colleages ordered the salmon on parmentier and the beef tenderloin medallions with veggies.

Went there for dinner. The place is very nice, clean, classy and well decorated. Have a very armonized atmosphere. The customer service is just perfect, they are friendly, professional and quick. They had a mistake with the terms of cooking the steak..so it took 3 times to get the right point, so it was kind of annoying and at the... More

This is a very pleasant restaurant with an outstanding patio. It is a great place to enjoy a glass or bottle of wine with a friend(s). I have been to Tintos y Blancos many times as I travel to Costa Rica at least 3 times a year. I am writing this review to bring attention to two separate incidents that... More

This place is awesome 1. Service is great. 2. Food is delicious ( during the week from 3 to 7 pm they have a nice tapa and glass of wine) 3. Despite being in the shopping mall, it's a bit isolated from the hustle and bustle so you don't need a reservation and there are no issues with the parking... More

Excellent Italian menu, extensive wine selection, superbly crafted food. This gem is tucked away on the side of the Multiplaza mall in Escazu. Highly recommended!

Had a late afternoon lunch. Our server, Michael was prompt, polite and friendly. The appetizers were very tasty. Our entrees were cooked perfectly (Tuna steak and Chicken Breast). The wine list is extensive and the atmosphere is very good.

The tintos y blancos is in a great area, right outside the multiplaza mall. The wine selection was pretty good and the food very good as well. The patio was great to have dinner at. The only downside perhaps is the space itself is kind of small. Other than that, good restaurant to try out.

This place is a very nice one to try good food and wine. It is Spanish "tapas" style. The wine selection is amazing, with several wines from everywhere around the world. It also has a very nice wine store

In the multiplaza shopping center (near the movie house), this is a worthwhile alternative to the pricey Intercontinental hotel fare. Considers itself a wine bar with food, so wine selections are as good as you would expect, and the food is also very good, particularly the fish. The small outdoor patio is a pleasant experience.

Saw Tintos y Blancos after eating at a different restaurant and decided it looked good. It's both a restaurant and wine shop so the Vinod are good 😀 plus the food, service and atmosphere are excellent. We lucked in on a Friday evening and had the added bonus of 2 guys who played some 80/90s classics and were excellent. Well... More
