“Something unique”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 via mobile

We were there for dinner (8 adults) and had the place to ourselves. It is a complete experience and not just food. Old remodeled house in barrio Amon converted into a cozy french restaurant where owners cook and serve tables in a warm friendly atmosphere. Very good french cuisine and good value for money. Reservation are a must.

“A perfect ending to our Costa Rica trip...”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

In a nutshell it felt like we were invited over for dinner to our friends beautifully designed home, where Gerald entertained us with stories about France and Costa Rica whilst Patricia worked her magic in the kitchen to prepare an absolutely delicious meal. All this to the sound of Motown classics playing in the background. By far the best meal we had in Costa Rica!

“Amazing”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

My wife and I truly adored our dining experience here! The food, service and ambiance were all top notch. There are about 6 tables inside the beautifully decorated house which means you get very personal attention. The husband and wife team go all out to ensure you have a great experience. Our best meal in Costa Rica.
