“Overall good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

Non pretentious, pleasant restaurant in downtown San José. Nice place to eat after a visit to the markets. Good sample of typical Costa Rican food, including one of my favorites, picadillo de arracache. Excellent café chorreado. Very good value.

“BBQ in San Jose”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2013

You won't miss this old looking red, white and blue house at the corner of Calle 10 and Ave 2 it stands out like a sore thumb. You will find all the typical food here but what they specialize in is BBQ right in the heart of the old city. Once you step inside you will think you are in the farming and jungle communities way outside of the city.
