We were hoping to find a tapas restaurant for some light snacks in the evening after a busy day. We gave this place a shot because of the live music advertised. The music was fun and entertaining but the menu was not too impressive. Instead of tapas, my husband and I shared an entree because nothing stood out. It was good, but not worth the fancy price tag. Service was slow and unorganized.

We ate at La Cantana BBQ tonight and it was just ok. The atmosphere was nice. The service was the first that I would rate as poor in our visit to Costa Rica- - waiter was slow, unfriendly and disengaged. The main course for all six in our party was bland, the desserts were fair. The live music was good, but we were sitting too close so it was very loud.

We visited this place because it seemed cousy withe the wooden fire and the classic train downstairs, we where not wrong. The people where amusing and there was a live band playing some Latin and other more known songs. An ideal mix with the food we ate.
My friends where enthousistic about the grilled meat on the wooden fire. I decided to order the days special: a pinapple filled with a fish stew. It was delicious and felt original. We all enjoyed some nice Gin tonics to end this wonderfull experience!

I had the Cantina Salad and the Beef Tenderloin. Holy YUMTOWN! The service was great, the atmosphere was very welcoming and relaxing. Be prepared to take your time eating here, though. Its a longer, "European Style" meal.
