I just returned from a Father’s Day dinner in this beautiful restaurant and all I can say is I had one of the most wonderful dining experiences I’ve ever had. The place is beautiful, the service is great and the food is delicious, and if you order the 7-course tasting menu, you also get a whole dining experience that keeps you engaged and looking forward to what’s next on you table. The tasting menu is changed every 3 months so you get a totally different experience on a later visit. My kids were also totally into the experience and left the place with a big smile, despite we had our doubts about how much they would enjoy a more upscale place like this. I’m already willing to come back. Totally recommended

Definitely go for the tasting menu. Not only delicious but full of gastronomy combined with history and tales. Tasting menu changes frequently so you will be surprised every time.
An amazing way to match excellent dinner and local costumes.
This is the place to go in Costa Rica for an outstanding evening or night !!! Congratulations to chef and team !!!

Very good food with a strong local influence which is welcomed in a town where the food scene is dominated by French cuisine.

Service was prompt and very helpful in deciding our options.

Price per person: USD 55.

New option on costarican food. I love the fact of an old retored house in the most beautiful downtown area, barrio Amon. Loved the restaurant, service, experience and food. It’ s awesome to learn more on costarican gastronomy and traditions when also merged with new ingredients creating an artistic tasting menu. Kuddos to the chef!!

As our last night in Costa Rica we thought we’d go for a special meal and this was the perfect choice.

We had the 7 course tasting menu based on Costa Rican street food from the 7 regions in the country. We also had the accompanying wines. Each course was delicious and I would highly recommend it.
