I live and San Jose and come back here everytime for the gnocchi and drinks. The food and fruit based drinks are so fresh. The balcony is a nice spot to spend a quiet evening.

We've been there 2 times. Chicken in mustard sauce was one of the best meals my husband had in Costa Rica. I ate fish which was also very good. And drinks are amazing, coco mojito is a must!

This restaurant offers a great variety of dishes and cocktails that you can enjoy with the sound of the sea in the back, or with live music if you are lucky.
