We found this place in lonely planet and it didn't disappoint! We both wanted something light as we had had a late lunch and the small plates were spot on. Amazing cocktails too and the churros were lovely to finish with! Would come here again!

The place is really lovely, is a mixture of contemporary and industrial design, located in San José downtown! The food is really delicious, the portions are perfect but the service is really bad, you'll have to wait a lot even for a simply ceviche (raw fish cooked with lemon), that's because it was only one waiter for 40 or 50 people, they need to improved that to become a greater restaurant!!

We went to this restaurant based on reviews and it was connected to our hotel. It was a lovely experience and the food was great. Good choices for vegetarians, good service and good sized portions.
The atmosphere was nice, quiet but buzzing, interesting decor. By far the best food we've had in San Jose.

Alma de Amon was a surprising and wonderful find in downtown San Jose. Wait staff was very attentive and food was very good, and portion size were more North American... highly recommended!

The best is the friendly atmosphere and the nice decorations.
Place is cozy and well located.
Perfect for chilling on nice afternoon.
Food and coffee is really nice! The restaurant is Cuban influenced but there is a nice variety of sweet options.
No parking places, you most leave the car on the street ( be careful since there is a lot of policemen controlling the parked cars)
