We did not know what to order! Méat, fish or chicken? Finally decided for a speciality: Parrill Camp for 2: mix of méats, Pinto gallo, salsa and tortillais, and more than enough. Easily for 3 people.

Restaurant recommended by a local. Wonderful typical Costa Rican food but this place is not a soda (roadside food stand). . . . the prices will reflect this. Fish was excellent, drinks great and large servings for the hungry. Waiter spoke English easily and service was good.

I usually do not do reviews but I find it important to share. I took some clients, a press team from Hong Kong, thought the place was nice and typical. At first impressed of how expensive it is which then found out from a colleague that they charge more to foreigners. But what really got me upset was the fact... More

Had the flank steak with veggies and fries, two juices and the wife had pasta for almost $60 US. Steak was quite good but the rest was simply not worth the $$

Good food and local flavors. Tried the chicken and it was flavorful . The plantain pancakes were dry but interesting. Chicken was moist and flavorful.

We grabbed dinner here our one night in San Jose. You got a lot of food for the money; the wait staff was attentive; and the food was very good.

I've eaten breakfast here twice. It's best described as touristy kitsch with "comida típico" (typical Costa Rican cuisine). The cool thing is that it is a touristy restaurant primarily for Costa Rican tourists (though you'll see foreigners there too). Think Cracker Barrel in Chepe. The breakfast is good. I like the "desayuno completo".

The wait staff were very helpful in guiding us through the large menu. The waiter spoke excellent English and recommended several local dishes that were very tasty. Portions are large. As always the chicken, rice and beans were top of the list along with some tasty appetizers and Bavaria Blonde beer. The decor is as eclectic as it gets with... More

This is a good place if you are on a budget. The food is always fresh. They have a wide variety of dishes. I did not like the fact that restrooms are too close to sitting areas. Great location for one day tours of San José as a safe base.
