Fun place to take a group that wants to see an average typical dance show. Food is not good, but it's typical. The view is great.

When in Central America I love to eat the local dishes, and hate to eat boring French, or Italian, Chinese, etc, esp US type of food which seems to be everywhere in CR. So this place was attractive because it serves typical CR dishes.

This restaurant is in a 100 or so year old farmhouse type of building. Great atmosphere, and has outdoor and indoor eating.

The food was great. I had for starters yucca balls stuffed with cheese, and smashed plantain with a bean type of dip (better than it sounds) and impossible to get where I come from (Oz)
Costa Rican tenderloin and it was great, served with plantains, refried beans, salad, and a potato hash that was great tasting, better than it looked. Was really nice with the beer. Service on the night we went (a Tuesday) was fast and courteous. The view is a knockout, and with the clouds drifting in and out, proved spectacular.

I though prices were OK, cheaper than some other restaurants which don't have the atmosphere, or view.

I would recommend this place a lot.

Early in the week, bookings are prob not required but the local guy who took me there said that on Wed on it's packed on account of local entertainers, dancers etc

One of the most spectacular views from a restaurant in the San Jose area, food Is great not fantastic! Super cost effective and the service is not that great specially if you get there and you find a few tour groups, this gets the waiters very busy.
The shows are fun and colorful done by college and high school kids.

Great views in the dry season, but below average food and awful service. Definitely not handicap friendly! Cold.
