We came to this place by recommendation from the hotel as we were looking for a grill place. It has a nice wooden decor. Starter was really good. Aubergine with tomato sauce and cheese. For mains we ordered mixed grill platter and it was disappointing. Beef steak was chewy and with lots of fat. Pork and chicken were ok. Margarita... More

We stopped by and found the food okay but very pricey. An average meal was $50.00 each and did not include wine. Much cheaper options in the same area. Service was good and friendly, just could not get over the prices for the food we got.

It was in a closet with other restaurants and stores. A good choice of restaurants in that Plaza. Cocktails were really overpriced.

I came to this restaurant some time ago. I ordered steak and it was probably one of the best I've ever had. It's a quiet restaurant, close to Alajuela downtown.

I have visited this restaurant several times. The service is always great, the meat is fantastic, excelent flavor and always cooked right, however, the sides are not exactly great, they should improve it. Prices are not exactly accesible but it is a worth! Highly reccommended!

#19 of 119? Really!? Hadn't read reviews, just went by the driver's recommendation. Excellent Sangria. Empanadas for the app. But the killer was the main event. Mixed grill for two. Came with grilled veg cooked really nice. Steak, chicken cutlet, home made sausage, and gigantic pork rib, all charcoal grilled. Came also with steamed fresh veg in butter sauce, rice... More

Lovely owner, had the mixed grill. Excellent and very fresh chicken. highly recommend. Excellent service - lots of locals who seem to be frequent dinners. Free shuttle from The Hampton Inn takes you here as the options around the hotel are limited. Would go again!

Really good food, price is about right. The service is great but a bit slow, it all depends on what you order, certain plates take longer than others to be ready and also depends on the amount of people you go with and how full the restaurant is. But overall a good experience.

We took a free shuttle from the Holiday Inn Express to this nearby mall with a selection of restaurants around the car park. My wife fancied steak so we ended up here. The meat was pretty reasonable, though not grade A, the prices seem to me to be quite steep for Costa Rica (70 USD for 2 steaks, 2 glasses... More
