Basically, I used to live in Escazu and still return at least monthly. Outback just did a large remodel, but the menu lost one of their go-to items, chicken-fried chicken. The quality of some dishes is excellent, such as salmon, in any form. I recommend Salmon over a house salad. The Churrasco is really excellent. The other steaks, not so... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant as it was close to our hotel. Found it a bit pricey but service was great and the food was delicious.

I walked in with several friends who wanted to eat here, However, when we sat down in the bar area to look over the menu the prices are way too expensive. We all 4 agreed we could eat somewhere else cheaper.

Save your money. Ordered the ribeye medium-red, sent it back TWICE. First time was way over cooked. I politely showed the runner, and she replied "Oh, so u want it just a couple seconds on each side" with a cocky attitude... I replied, "No, I want it medium red". She took my plate back. Next time, it came back way... More

I like outback in the USA, Mexico, Puerto Rico , Brazil,... I hated it in Costa Rica ... the service is terrible and the food is expensive considering what you are getting ... last time I got a blooming onion and it has more OIL than onion... I even called it a OILING onion, and the meat was not cooked... More

I guess i had always thought of The Outback as just another chain restaurant. They have their gimmick items but in spite of that they have really good steaks. Wonderful meal and steak is not always good in Costa Rica.
