“might be ok with low expectations”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

thing i hated most, out of a few locations I tried, it seems this restaurant is plagued by flies. I've noticed too many cleanliness issues to ever consider trying them again. If the tables and bathrooms are disgusting, can you imagine their kitchen?

Anyhow the food is mediocre, maybe one par above fast food. Typical bad service for costa rica.

“Save your money and run the other way!”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

We had the unfortunate experience of dining at this restaurant in Multiplaza Escazu. The food was awful. We ordered the falafel wraps which had uncooked pieces of eggplant and no flavor whatsoever. This place again doesn't live up to the reviews it has previously received as the food doesn't seem to be fresh. I would avoid this place and find something else to eat if you are visiting the location that they have at the mall.

“Average”
Reviewed 8 April 2013 via mobile

The place is good for breakfast, lunch is not bad but is not that good more like an average thing. Smoothies and desserts are good! I would recommend to go for breakfast or coffee break!

“To many better alternatives to return”
Reviewed 25 March 2013

Food not bad, but not impressive. Definitely expensive for the value... Small lasagna without ricotta= lasagna noodles covered with bolognesa sauce and a large glob of mozzarella melted over it (almost melted), for $10 with a small salad is definitely not a value.. The sandwiches and rollups looked good at other tables, but I can only report on what we had.

Not a good thing when I am a "little hungry", spend $10 for a lunch and leave a "little hungry." Seems like the purpose of eating here was lost as was the $10...

Service- They respond to what it is that you ask for, but do not expect them to bring you normal things like water, refills on water, silverware, etc. without pushing the button on the little "call your waitress" thing on the table. One button is for the "cuenta only". After 5 minutes the waitress arrived and we had to ask for "la cuenta".

Definitely not my choice of restaurant and I see no need to return.
