Everything was perfect during this visit. Location, welcome, staff friendliness, food suggestions, food preparation... everything. I tried the traditional Vazio which was absolutely amazing. I indicated to the waiter about my allergies and kept those in mind the whole time.

Basic Argentinian restaurant. We sat on the terrace and had to look for the waitress or waiter a few times. Steak was overcooked and the side dishes (vegetables) cold and a small portion. It was not terrible, but with so many choices in the area, i will choose another restaurant next time.

I went with my friends, 2 locals (ticos), and we were treated to some excellent steak and wine. Don't have too much to say other than that the service was very professional & prompt, the food was delicious, and the portions were huge. Definitely recommend for fine dining in San Jose.

Visited on an off day, and were the only customers for an hour. The service was exceptional, and while I speak no Spanish, The waiter was fluent in English. Very helpful! The stake I ordered was cooked to perfection and was tender throughout. I like that the meal was served on a "board" with a groove around the outside to... More

We frequently eat at one of the myriad restaurant choices at Plaza Itskatzu and last weekend chose to try the Argentinian restaurant. Since the steak in Costa Rica, where we live, is so tough, we wanted a good one and were willing to pay the $33 each for the special main course or "Plate de Mes" (plate of the month)... More

This was my second visit. The steak is excellent as was the chorizo appetizer. I wish they still had the fried plantain with chorizo appetizer.

The food was very good, the service kind of good but for the fact that for the food it took some 40 minutes to arrive & all waiters disappeared during that time, something that considering that the place was empty at that time was weird. The best part of the dinning experience would be the dessert.

So we are staying at the Marriott here I Eszacu SJ - we wanted to go into the city to another restaurant which really was only 2 miles away but it was going to take an hour because of traffic. So we decided to eat at this little restaurant here by our hotel. Wow what a great find. Impeccable service... More

I was travelling to Costa Rica and was craving for having a good Stake. After learning about Terruño, I immediately booked it for dinner and ordered "bife de chorizo con papas y ensalada". I can say that the stake was delicious, the papas were crisp and very similar to what I had in Buenos Aires. The waiters were nice and... More

I really wish I could have tried it, but the schedule they posted on tripasvisor is WAY off. It says they close at midnight. I showed up at 10:30 and kitchen was already closed. When I let the person know that they had the wrong posted on tripadvisor I was expecting them to at least say "we'll check it out... More

Description
Terruño Restaurante Argentino is one of the few restaurant in Costa Rica to offer up great quality Argentinian steaks in a great atmosphere. After entering through the 20th century wooden door, the atmosphere is a mix of urban and contemporary.If your taste buds desire a tender meat feast, Terruño Restaurante definitely serves us some of the best grilled steaks in San José. Try their exclusive Gaucho steak or perhaps the beef chorizo.Terruño Restaurante also offer fish and seafood in a Mediterranean style and homemade pasta
