After our third visit I confirmed they service is really poor and the food is pretty average. I gave the restaurant 3 opportunities but the service went down every time I return. Our food was cold and took over 30 minutes to be served the last ocassion. There are other mexican restaurants that definitely deserved a try in San Jose,... More

It's got a fun, open-air atmosphere. It's in a mall and you can walk between it and the several other restaurants in the mall. Small tequila section, but good representation. A little pricey ($20 USD for a shot of Patron). Then, after we'd bought a round of shots at $20 USD per shot, they offered us a special on the... More

Our party of 4 adults and 2 small children were met by a gentleman with a large umbrella to shield us from the hot midday sun. (The ladies and children got to enjoy that shade for the short walk to the entrance. I enjoyed Camerónes de la Diable. When the waitress asked if I wanted the sauce on the side,... More

The food is good, not great. Service is pretty good. Recommended! Try the gringa and the horchata. Very good! The spicy sauces are not that spicy

San José is very expensive for a city that lives way behind many things. The price is an issue here.

I visited the Tacontento restaurant a few days a go, I went for a late lunch and enjoyed the visit. The restaurant is well located, in the inside of the Antares food-mall offers an ok selection of seats in the first or second floor (that was closed that day) and even a small deck at the entrance but the deck...

This Tacontento is part of the Tacontento Mexican restaurant chain. In San Jose Metro there are 3 locations I know about - Escazu, Heredia and this one in Plaza Antares in San Pedro. The restaurant is a two story affair, located inside the Plaza's main entrance. Food is plentiful and of acceptable quality - not outstanding but not as terrible... More
