Stumbled(climbed) up to this friendly restaurant/ bar above Escazu to find a mind boggling serving and view. One of the highlights of our whole trip! Meet owner, Roberto, up there and he will set you up.

We have been going to Tiquicia for many years and it is always like the first time when you get up there and see the city lights. The food is always very good and the staff very pleasant.

Visited on a Sunday. A challenging drive from the city but the superb views from the restaurant made the trip very worthwhile. We ate from the buffet - the food was very good. Lovely restaurant.

Restaurant with an excellent view of what they call locally the "Great Metropolitan Area", with local shows and dances before 8 pm, so get there early and a great variety of typical food.

Drive here was terrible. Took a cab which was $20 from city center at rush hour. Up steep hills, in mud, ruts. Come down the mountain was terrifying. BUT, view was amazing.
