We expected to dine in a Peruvian restaurant, but it's much more Fusion than Latin-American/Peruvian. Could also be that the menu during the day offers more (Peruvian?) choices, but for dinner they only serve two optional set menus. Which both are very good: we had a very tasty carrot soup as well as grilled squids (the sauce had too much... More

The owner welcomed us and explained his background, which inspired the fusion of Spanish, Italian, and Peruvian dining at his restaurant. It was very apparent that his restaurant is a labor of love. Everything that touched our lips was delicious. Each part of our meals appeared and tasted like it was made fresh from high quality ingredients. The service was... More

My family, friends, business associates and I have loved this restaurant ever since it opened several years ago at its old location. Now, in the heart of Avenida Escazú, the food is better than ever. We went two weeks ago at my son's request for his 18th birthday. We all enjoyed different ceviches and tiraditas - for me, the Ceviche... More

The service was excellent. The food taste and quality was regular. But the real problem was that the dinner did not sit well with my body. I can´t say this with 100% certainty, but I believe the lomito saltado was handled improperly, which caused me food poisoning. Not the best way to spend your days visiting Costa Rica. Look elsewhere.

Friends and I went here before going to a movie and we enjoyed it, but it wasn't "divina." Between the three of us we got a chicken stir fry, beef stir fry, and tuna but none of them were outstanding, just somewhere between average and good. The prices weren't outrageous fortunately and they did have a nice beer selection so... More

Definitely one of the best restaurants in the area. Fusion style leads to some very unique dishes. Nice place to go for special occasions when you're not looking for the same old "casado".

It was very close of our hotel. I loved the red, soft big napkins and the water glasses. Also big table. The restaurant wasn't busy because it was Monday lunchtime. Delicious Peruvian food. Amazing. Great service. I hope we can come back. Maria

We both had a layer salad to start. It was layered with vegetables and octopus Then I went on and had a great seafood soup. There were large piece of mussels, shrimp, squid and octopus. The wine was Crane Lake Pinot Giorgio (8861 Costa Rica). We also had Chocolate Bananas Bread pudding which was moisture and flavourful. The bill came... More

İ have tried everything in Costa Rica and finally found it: this the one. İ had believe it or not, four dishes before desert. Also tasted four other dishes of my friends. Just excellent without exception. İ will come back.
