one of the worst restaurant/bars i've been to in costa rica. the food is terrible, the services is worse, and there's very loud music in the background. could not finish the highly greasy and overpriced meal, and the waiters have attitudes towards the costumers. not recommended at all.

Hate the fact that they charge for a parking space. Besides, the food is not that good and it's way overpriced IMO

Pollo Cervecero is a nice place. Many costa rican people likes to go there after work. The palce is visit for people between 25-40 years old, nice music and the prices are similar to the rest of bars in San Jose, but the quality of (bocas) entrees or small dishes is not so good.

I don't usually eat in bars but Patacones at Pollo Cervecero are worth the visit.

It's a bar. Period. Greasy, smelly, the furniture is horrible. Nothing impressive. Oh wait, yes, the prices were impressive!
