The grano de oro restaurant is well know for its fine cuisine. We went there and had a great meal. The meat was superb. The cut was a delmonico. The chef certainly knew what they were doing. It was a masterpiece.

Costa Rica is a very informal place. He will not need a jacket but I would not go there in shorts during dinner. But otherwise no one will bother you if you wear jeans or other informal wear.
