This restaurant exists mostly to service people waiting at the movie theater. It's a nice bar with an extensive snack menu. We had a quick snack before a movie and the service was good and very fast. The food and prices are pretty average.

It's the typical sports bar. Is a good place to watch a game, or share some drinks after office, as it has a good location. You can also share with friends after/before a movie, as it is located near the only IMAX in Costa Rica. Food quality is average, as well as service and price.

Thank Alonso M
