“Argentine Restaurant in Costa Rica”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

First, Yerlin is a fantastic waiter. The food was good, priced moderately. The restaurant was casual and relaxing. Enjoyed the meal, as did the family. Definitely worth a visit in you're in Alajuela.

“Argentinian food too good to pass”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

This is the the third time I've eaten at this wonderful place and I've never been disappointed! We've had empanadas, blood sausage and mushroom soup appetizers, all fantastic! Our meals were various steak cuts--my daughter raved about the rump steak--and the pork rib. Never disappointed!! Too full to have dessert so can't review that. Fantastic Chilean and Argentinian wine selections. The service is above and beyond what should be expected. Will eat here every time we are in San Jose/Alajuela.

“Great food, albeit a little pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

This Argentinian restaurant is, in my opinion, one of the very few high points (for dining, at least) in downtown Alajuela. I have lived there most of my life, and this is usually the first place that comes to mind when I want to have a moderately fancy dinner without driving too far. Service is prompt and courteous, although not terribly familiar with the dishes or how they're prepared. Food is varied enough, with the main focus being meat (beef) and pasta. Some seafood dishes and salads, along with Argentinian appetizers and desserts round up the menu. Food quality has always been excellent. The only two minor complaints I have are the prices and the atmosphere. It's not incredibly expensive, and I'd say both the quality and quantity of the food match the price, but just barely; and it's definitely on the pricey side. It can also be hard to justify the price on a slow night, when the place has almost no ambiance, except for very low volume music playing in the background. Still, for a nice, semi-formal dinner with family, business partners or a significant other, this is a very good choice.

“A little Argentinian flavour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

We enjoyed a nice chilean wine with some great beef fajitas. The service and atmosphere were great. It was a nice place to have a quiet dinner however we did feel the prices were a bit steep.
