Costa Rica is not a great place for wine lovers, however Tintos y Blancos is the best spot. They have happy hour from 3 to 7:00 PM where you can get the wine by glass. They have very inventive Tapas combining Mediterranean with local exotic ingredients. Management and services are great. Special activities you can plan here: Wine tasting sessions... More

My group of friends decided to get together at the mall and then have lunch. Tintos y blancos was a very nice surprise with a nice menu but also a set of feature lunch for us.

We went for dinner last night. The place wasn’t packed, but we were 2 adults and most empty tables were for bigger parties. Only small table available was literally on stage. We asked the waiter if we could have a table on the second floor, however he stated it was closed (there were a few people dinning upstairs, but we... More

Went there for a business meal with a mix of Ticos and Gringos - myself being one of the latter. The staff was very good at handling the needs of our large group. It was my first time with a major wine list in Costa Rica and I was a bit overwhelmed by the heavy skew towards Argentine and Chilean... More

Excellent service & good food. Was recommended by our hotel & was no disappointment. The "entraña" steak ( churrasco/skirt steak ) served with mushroom risotto was excellent & the Grilled Salmon very good! Nicely located.

Tourist trap!!! They will charge you extra if they think you're drunk- so fake it! Great environment, but it sucks that they are not responsible enough to review before they charge

My girlfriend and I like to visit this place between Mon-Friday because they have 3 different menu options (everyday) (all week) for a great price ( $12-18). Not only you enjoy a different dish every time you visit but the special includes: - Entry - Drink (Sangria, Wine or Fruit Juice) - Italian bread (if you ask) - Main Course... More

Despite a slow start the service made this experience with interest and good advice.excellent food with meat in particular being good the wine list is excellent but best enjoyed with friends as the carafe selection is slightly pedestrian. If you can see past the car park setting it's a great place.

Was a table for 5, all but one main plate were served ok, however it took almost 1 hrs for a Risotto, the excuse was that the plate was broken. As with such delay I would expect a big discount or something but was not the case.
