A beautiful view of the Costa Rican sceneries, including green mountain and the bluest sky to accompany the Latin music in the background with traditionally dressed waiters. Sweet drinks along with the robust steak of the house... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times and enjoyed the restaurant several times as well. We had typical Costa Rican dishes and they were delicious! My husband enjoys their rice pudding dessert! Our waitress was enjoyable and very helpful in our food selections.

Ate dinner at the restaurant in our hotel (Hotel Aeropuerto) and was even more impressed with dinner than when we arrived in Costa Rica and had the breakfast buffet. We had the mixed ceviche, the seafood soup, and the crema soup which that day was pumpkin. Everything was superb but the seafood soup was the absolute best. The broth alone... More

Very good ceviche and steaks. Ice cold beer at the bar. Great Costa Rican authenticity to the food and the ambiance. Beautiful veranda.

Good steak house that is close to the airport. The restaurant is located in the same property of Hotel Airport. The location is not the best because there is not turn to the left (return to Alajuela or airport) so the driver must be carefully when drive back. The quality is very good and prices acceptable. the y also have... More
