Between us we shared the Street Ceviche, Octopus Carpaccio and a sharing platter. Each dish was delicious, prepared brilliantly and presented pretty well too. I'd recommend any of them, but the...

Was almost closing, and no problem coming in. Got a beer, with a ice cold glass, beef tenderloin with shrimp. Soo good! Massive prawn/shrimp things, tender beef and tasty veggies, nothing over cooked. Had a yummy pesto sauce on side.

First time visitor. Had a wonderful dinner with friends at Machu Picchu and I highly recommend the restaurant. The service was very attentive and the seafood some of the best in the city. The area is a little run down but the restaurant is great and I would say it is a must do in San Jose when you are... More

We stopped here for lunch one day and went a little crazy ordering. The food was fantastic! We both had appetizers and main courses. There is lots of room in the restaurant. The service was very good. Did I mention that the food was amazing!!!

I visited after reading the reviews here. It's truly the best. I don't see much night activities in San Jose so as family we return to hotel everyday around 4pm. ( lots of stores close as early as 3pm). Finally this restaurant came up and it turned out really great. The staff speak English well and they recommend the right... More

Warning--there are two review sites for this restaurant on Trip Advisor and they are the same restaurant! In any event, this is very convenient to Hotel Gran del Oro, where we stayed. About a 10-15 minute walk. The food was very good and the Pisco Sours could have been flown in from Peru. Definitely recommend if you are staying in... More
