1. The check was 92.000 colones and I payed with my credit card.
2. Hans, the owner, came back with a voucher for 184 dollars.
3. The legal exchange rate in Costa Rica is between 536 and 551 colones, so the check should have been between 167 and 172 dollars and therefore I asked him nicely to charge me in colones.
4. He refused with the excuse that the machine (that belongs to the Banco Nacional de Costa Rica) only works with dollars.
5. I asked him then to use a normal (legal) exchange rate (I'd have been OK with him using 536 for his advantage).
6. He responded that Ylang Ylang exchange rate was 500 colones.
7. I live in San José and I often visit Ojochal, but I'm never ever coming back to this restaurant.
8. I will complain to "La defensoría del consumidor" this week, for what his does is completely illegal.
9. The food was OK.
