Excellent service and food here. The staff were welcoming and attentive. Ours was a late lunch/early dinner and we were assisted by Nelson in particular who suggested salmon as a great choice, he explained it was fresh in that day and particularly good. We were...after a steak however, and he helped us choose two excellent dishes. Both steaks were cooked to perfection, and were tasty with delicious accompaniments. We’d happily return and would highly recommend The Patio to others for a good, relaxing meal away from the noise, hustle and bustle on the streets.More

Karlay, Steven, and Marco were sooo very nice, welcoming, and friendly during my stay at Hotel Barmoral and during meals at El Patio inside the hotel. I felt at home being around them and they made my visit to your beautiful country of Costa Rica...even more wonderful than it was already. Thank you so much!! These people deserve hugs from management, and also pay raises!:-)More

Close to Avenue Central and our hotel. A lovely get-away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We had the Fusion San José and the New York steak - generous portions & good quality food. Decent prices too. Our server Karla was very friendly
