“Great food and environment”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Luv this place a lot. The only thing was that want to have a seat inside but it seems that every spot was reserved. Need to try going in the afternoon.

“Beautiful setting in the city”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We were looking for a dinner place and this place was recommended. We took a taxi there and glad we did. The cafe is in a huge corner house. You might not notice it walking there. Spanish is their first language, so be prepared, we had pasta for dinner with wine. Very good and reasonably priced. If you want pizza go after 9 PM. The artwork in the numerous rooms is beautiful. We'd go back here next time in San Jose.

“IN AN OLD HOUSE IN THE OLD BARRIO”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

In years gone by, Barrio Amon, where this is, was probably the wealthiest in S.J. About 10 years ago, this owner fixed this old big house up to like it was back then. busy place at lunch with the Tico office crowd, busy at night with a mix of ticos and tourists. Not cheap. Good food, location, service, presentation, over priced.
