Argentina has a long recognized tradition for quality meat cuts and dishes, which Las Piedras delivers on. The establishment was started more than 20 years ago by an Argentinian that moved to Costa Rica and started selling empanadas in the town of... More

The food here was so incredibly delicious and flavorful. Friendly staff and great service. One of the best steaks I have ever had. Make sure to try the mixed plate. It gives you a little bit of everything to try. Amazing quality meats and just a great restaurant.

We had five chickens done for take out and they were superb. Charming owner/chef and the staff was very friendly. Mal Pais can be hot so be sure to sit as far away from the open grill as you can. Great atmosphere though we were not there when it was dry and therefore dusty--as most of the places do--it sits... More

We were craving meat after a week of seafood. We had the sampler for 2. Great steak (hard to come by since we are from Alberta :). Awesome service and one of our favorite dinners!

Las Piedras is the perfect place to have a layer back dinner, it's mainly meat but the tuna was excellent and so were the vegetables. Great ambiance too.

This was well worth the trip. The beef is one of the best steaks i have had in Costa Rica..we had a side of their homemade sausage which was tasty. Cooked to perfection on an open fire. Wish i had rom for dessert. Will have to go back one day.

We have been going to Costa for years and the steak at this restaurant is probably the best steak we have had.... fresh and cooked to order over a hot flaming grill. There was a group of us and we also had the chicken and sausage and it was all wonderful, including the mashed potatoes and other sides! A definite... More

This place was so good. The power had gone out and they still served us a meal that was fantastic. We had grilled vegetables, grilled steak, tuna, and pork ribs. A real treat this little place was to find!!

Simple Restaurant with an open fire for the BBQ. The first time we had fresh grilled Tuna. The second time Tuna was out so we had fish of the day. Both meals were very delicious. Service was fast and very friendly. Nice place!
