I waited to be seated for like 4 mins, 4 staff members went by, looked over and did not help. Finally an angry lady came over and asked for my name and sat us down (even though there... More

Last Saturday we visited La Adelita in their new location in Santa Ana with a group of 9. The view was great and the food also. The 'enmolados' (enchiladas with mexican mole-sauce) was almost perfect. However, the service was a disaster. The waiters seemed disorganized, didn´t attend us in time. The kitchen didn´t deliver all the food at the same... More

Now in a new location on the Old Escazu Road between Escazu and Santa Ana. The views are great! Be sure to arrive early to select a good table at this small venue. Romantic booths are available. Loud and bustling, the food is above average and prepared by Mexican cooks. Hard to spot from the road. A great place for... More

Unorganized and they didn't have the decency to change our order and charges us for the error anyway after ordering 6 other items. Seems like they could've afford losing 3 tortillas.

The writings on the wall attest to a wonderful experience. These must be old. Like the taquitos served. or gone off wine. You can make better Mexican food at home--yes, you. This was one of our worst meals in Costa Rica, one of our worst "mexican" meals (you;re betteroff at atco bell... way better off) and actually one of our... More

The owner looked like a drunk street bum and was annoying. He comes up to the table and starts mumbling. The food was disgusting and too expensive.
