Nice atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating. The food and drinks are a little pricey, but the portions are decent and sometimes there's specials.

This is one of my favourites in Costa Rica and used to be a regular almost since they first opened in Ciudad Colon. The place is run by a lovely German-Costa Rican couple. The chef, Dirk, is a pro and cooks a variety of European and Asian menus. Their steaks and salads are my favourites and they offer excellent hamburger... More

This weekend we were looking for something different and delicious for a late lunch, and we found it!! The place is nice, family oriented, very casual and the food is out of this world. My husband is German, and he found it to be “as good as mom´s cooking”. My brother in law ordered the ribs, and he almost liked... More

Maya lounge in Ciudad Colon is a great, relaxed restaurant. Dirk, the chef, sources great ingredients locally and creates hearty fusion dishes. The signature burger is excellent but so are the more German dishes. The staff are always friendly and attentive and the beer garden is a great place to spend an afternoon drinking Erdinger and watching some sport. Very... More

Since it's located in Ciudad Colon, it got a very nice environment, we were outside in the terrace and it was perfect. Good music with a nice volume, people can talk and have long conversations. Also the dish I ordered was FANTASTIC!!! Awesome cuisine and lots of complements to the Chef. The Delmonico with species crust and portobello, simply DELICIOUS!... More

They were a good choice to eat something nice, cheap and good, different to many classic options. Recently they chance to introduce new food and drinks however they lose the main idea to be something different to be a classic cantine with dishes not different from cantines around the corner.

I had a very good tuna salad with freshly grilled tuna and tasty vegetables. Nicely served, and the staff is super friendly! I highly recommend this place...I should also mention that it is very reasonably priced.

This small, entirely pleasant and welcoming restaurant perfectly fills a huge vacuum in this town near San Jose. For the university crowd who attend nearby University For Peace, it's exactly what they've long needed. Tables are comfortable, food is casual but very good, prices are far from the heights hit by too many San Jose restaurants these days, and service... More
