This was one of the best restaurants in Costa Rica, receantly I went with my husband and ordered seasonal burger, I can tell you it was a greasy not tasty burger. The service was very bad, the shortened the menu, the decoration is the same old and boring one. Do not recommend it at all.

Famous for their palmito (hearts of palm) salad. Perhaps the best lobster in the Central Valley. Shrimp the size of Donald trump's hands. Great selection of steaks. They bring them out on a cart so you can pick the ones you want. Delicious.

Every time I go to San Jose I like to stop by La Cascada for a good steak with rice, beans and platano maduro. The foods takes me back to my childhood years.

We arrived here early on a week afternoon and there wasn't a soul inside the restaurant. The staff were friendly and welcoming, we were celebrating good news so decided to try some place different. We ordered two drinks and two different main courses. The mojitos were okay nothing special, but was looking forward to the meal as we heard the... More

Not a fancy place, not a big place, a small well kept Resturant who's de core is a little dated but you don't go to a Resturant for the looks alone you go for the food, and defiantly this is one of those restaurants. Specializing in steaks, they show you and allow you to select the cut of steak you... More

Decoration and walls look a bit old. Staff is very friendly. I find the prices expensive and food is ok, nothing special or exceptional, it was just ok.

I heard about this restaurant as the place to go for steaks in Costa Rica for years.. Maybe I am spoiled (just returned from a two week trip to Denver and points west) but I was totally unimpressed.. The steak was sliced half way through in a pattern before cooking which means that medium was medium or well, but not... More

I have tried many steak places since it is one of my favorite meals, but this one is the best one since a long time ago. I go an average of once a week and it is totally worth it. The prices are perfect for the quality of food you get. Highly recommended!
