Wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner and it was amazing. Great cocktails & amazing appetizers. Main course was delish and the desert was gourmet all the way and made in front of you. Very cool ambiance to match the quality of food. Already recommended it to friends.

The best restaurant I have eaten at. I have travelled the world and the food and presentation here was amazing. If you land in San Jose, Costa Rica or are flying out, make sure you stop for dinner or lunch. You won't be disappointed. Everything we sampled was an artful presentation with the perfect blend of texture and flavour.

We recently visited El Punto and we were impressed.

The array of flavors and textures that came from the fun fusion of familiar ingredients with more adventurous ones made this an incredibly unique dining experience.

The food is impeccable and perfectly balanced (plus amazing breads and spreads). Their paired wine is absolutely delicious as well.

The preparations are distinctive from what is commonly served everywhere else.

We had the calamari salad, the octopus and the Cochinita tacos (don’t forget to order “los chiles de la casa”) and from start to finish, our experience was outstanding.

The hardest part was deciding what to get, as so many items sounded delicious. But leave room for dessert, as they are just amazing!

Definitely, my favorite restaurant in Costa Rica.

We went to try the restaurant and really had no expectations and no idea type of cuisine. We got really got excited when we were told all the recipes are originally created by the chef using all local products, most produce from there own orchard. The best part was the restaurants enthusiasm for you to try the whole menu and making plates into split orders so the whole table can try diferente dishes, everything was so different and delicious. Please go and try this original and different restaurant. Please leave room for desert because they are all fenomenal. Excelente food, attentive staff, wide original drinks menu and long wine list and abundant amount of spirits and cocktails.
