Well I never complain about places I visited; but this specific place was in my top ten list of the restaurants not to go. Let's start with the basics. Furnitures; all the tables and chairs are damaged. The place looks a little messy and ruined, sadly cuz the restaurant it's located in an old beautiful house in front La Sabana... More

My wife and I were staying nearby and decided to eat here. We ordered cervix he which was very bad. We then ordered Filet mignon and a rib eye. The steaks that were bought to the table were neither...in fact they both resembled round steak or flank steak. We bought this to the attention of our waiter and he became... More

We went to this restaurant because we were staying at a nearby hotel and that there are not many options around. I can only confirm the overall bad comments on trip advisor about this place. The only good things were the friendly waiters and that we did not wait too long (there were not many customers though, and most of... More

This place looked fancy from the outside and had a cute looking patio, but as it was windy we opted to sit inside. We were shown to a different seating area than we had seen from the outside that was very no frills. The menu was extensive, but also very expensive. The server that sat us and took our order...

Beso is a beautiful outdoor cafe across from the Sabana Park. The chicken wings were really good, portion size was truly economical, and sauce you can have the sauce on the side so they aren't sloppy. Don't do the Sunday brunch it is expensive and not really special - more beans and rice! The atmosphere is good and it is... More

This place is totally awful!!! Seriously, I arrived with my wife hoping to enjoy a nice dinner and it was like going to a worn down bar. By all means stay away from this place. The prices were overly expensive and we were seated at some clumsy wooden chairs and table. I regret every penny I spent and wish I... More

This place used to be okay, but now it kinda sucks. The food isn't bad, and the place still looks kinda nice, but the service is terrible and the menu seems to be going downhill.

We dined at the covered patio, large and comfortable and we all found what we needed to eat with their lunch buffet. They do... More

My wife and I decided to take a stroll on our first night in San Jose. We passed by Beso and noticed a number of people sitting on their patio and enjoying drinks and company.
