Nau Lounge is a Japanese restaurant inside Intercontinental Hotel within de Escasú area of San José. Here you can experience a very decent Japanese meal at a nice and cosy atmosphere. It is worth mentioning de good quality of the fish here. I definitely suggest the sashimi & nigiri combos, definitely worth trying one of them. For a couple I... More

Excellent quality sushi! Fantastic service! Lovely restaurant. I was unsure to try sushi here....just because it's Costa Rica, which does not seem like a sushi kinda place. Happy I did. Yum!

This is the kind of sushi restaurant where you can sit back, relax, enjoy the cool atmosphere and have a drink with good Japanese food. Menu is not very diverse but you can find the basic Japanese food. This restaurant is located inside the Intercontinental Hotel. They offer parking for a fee. Service is just ok, My salmon teriyaki was... More

I highly recommend Nau for a business lunch or just a casual meal/dinner. There are some options on the menu that are average, but feel free to ask any staff member their recommendations and trust me you won't be disappointed, they are one of the 3 main restaurants in our best city hotel and not for nothing.

Unfortunately we experienced the same bad service as "Barak K" on 1/20... we had to wait for service so we could place our order. Also never had follow-up service to offer additional drinks or dessert. On the upside, food was very good. For me service is at least 1/2 the experience. Three stars may be pushing the review.

Was disappointed this time, food did not seem as fresh, service was poor, it seems difficult to get Servers to return to fill drinks.....we left and went to a sports bar instead.
