We stay at the hotel as well. As soon as the driver to this hotel had his moment, hè told us that we have to eat here. He was the second one who advised us, so we did.

We had lamb and tenderloin (in a crust of pistache and macedamia foam). They gave us steak knives, but the meat was so tender that you've could cut it with a spoon! I also recommend you to take the tres leche as a desert.

The place is very beautyfull and the staff very friendly.

We had both dinner and breakfast here. While both were good, I believe the breakfast experience is exceptional.

With it's open courtyard and old world decor, the restaurant complements the Gran de Oro hotel very well. The service was both attentive and excellent. Freshly (right at the bar) squeezed juices, great coffee and a wide choice of both Costa Rican and all American breakfasts.

I prefer the Costa Rican breakfast with eggs. The price is reasonable given the environment, food and service. I would eat here again in a flash.

Pura Vida!

Everything was great in Grano de Oro Restaurant. The food is creative, original (not easy to find this in San Jose). The service is excellent (you can see there is "school" there). The atmosphere is elegant, and warm. Fully recommended
