This is by far my favorite restaurant in the city when visiting. The appetizers are amazing. I didn't even know I liked Octopus. The risotto and sea bass were amazing and the desserts have a costa rican flare that make them to die for. The service was fabulous. Not speaking much english, we were offered some assistance but managed without... More

It was recommended to me by a friend that lives in San Jose, the place is really well set up and very nicely decorated. Service was excellent but food was a disappointment, may be too high expectations. I asked for a starter for a dish that was maid up of crispy grilled octopus and quinoa, for me quinoa is a... More

La Divina Comida is one of my favorite restaurants in Escazu, for a couple of reasons, just walk in and you will start to feel it is a sensory experience, the seats, the tables, everything is done with an amazing taste. However the food is definitely to die for, everything is done with finesse. My favorite dish is the Tuna... More

We chose La Divina Comida for several reasons. The proximity to our hotel was key; given the inclement weather. In addition, the focus on Peruvian flavors. After a week in Jaco, Costa Rica, we had become accustomed to minimal language barriers. The food and ambiance was clearly the highlight despite some language difficulties. There were 5 of us and we... More

seafood is excellent (try the "pulpo" as a starter), wine selection is very decent and the friendly, professional service makes your stay yet a little better - make sure to book upfront. I'd definitely come again

Their tuna tartare is the best! Last time I had a tuna sashimi with toasted red quinoa that was out of this world! A bit expensive but well worth it!

La Divina Comida is a classic must go in Escazú. The Peruvian inspiration is in all dishes and my favorite is the Corvina a la Huancaina. The ceviches are incredible! This is a place to go for a business meal as well as a family reunion.

I was a fan of Divina Comida in its first location and it has only gotten better since their move. Excellent dining and lounging atmosphere. It is a great place to go on a date as well as out with your friends. The Ceviche Limeno is my favorite, but there are too many fabulous things to choose from. The wine... More
