restaurant near the airport

We will have a few hours to kill, beyond the time that we need at the SJO airport. In a prior thread, someone suggested that we could take a taxi to Alajuela and walk around or get something to eat. That sounds like a good idea. How long should the taxi ride be from SJO to the center of town in Alajuela? How much should this taxi cost? Is there a (casual) restaurant you would recommend, for an early lunch? Thank you.

A taxi ride to the center of Alajuela will take 10-15 minutes, depending on traffic. It should cost $5-7.

There are a number of restaurants. I would ask the driver to take you to the Cathedral (very near the Central Park) and just walk around from there. One restaurant that I like near the park is Coffee Dreams.
