It was not so easy to find, and we had a bit of a walk along a road with lots of traffic. We only saw the sign, but when we got in we saw there was a nice little backyard. We had a great sharing taco board, and of course the experience was even more enjoyable due to the old tequila drinking fellow with the sombrero.

First night in San Jose (and Costa Rica); looked at a couple of other restaurants nearby but glad we came across this one. Excellent value for money and delicious food. We were there on a mid week night and it was quiet. Good service - would certainly eat there again in back in San Jose

I have been to San Jose on many occasions and have always been left disappointed in the food department. I was lucky to find mananitas this trip and was left super satisfied. Definitely a diamond in the rough.

What a surprise! Amazing mexican food off of the beaten path with quite a large menu and superb margs and unique guac. They have some small kittens running around too that add to the atmosphere. The prices were a bit high, but it is in San Jose so that is probably why. Nice private back patio.

Come here for tasty Mexican food at good prices. We stayed in San Jose for a few days and returned twice and consistently good quality and taste. Recommend the Taco platter, perfect for two. Wide selection of other options. Good selection of sauces - mole, homemade guacamole, and some others including a spicy coriander one. Wine was good too (is a glass and not a 'pint' as menu suggests!). Mexican owner was friendly and cosy setting just off the main road. Come and try it, cocktails good too.
