We only stopped here for drinks, but we loved the international cuisine options. They're generous with their pours, and the service was fantastic.

El Abasto Mercado Gastronomico has only been open a few months. It has a good variety of food and excellent service. We really enjoyed our experience. Jordan the waiter even gave us a complimentary bar of chocolate to take away with us!

El Abasto Mercado Gastronómico is a route where you can feel a gastronomic adventure without leaving San José. 5 concepts: Pizza Pasta (Italian), Puerto Barcelona (Spanish), Lubnan (Lebanese), Milanesa Concept (Argentine) and El Viejo Almacen (Cafeteria and Desserts). In addition to our variety of wines, cocktails and other drinks. Definitely a place to enjoy loaded with art and flavor
