I went here with some colleagues from work and expected to pay more than I usually pay for dinner. In the end, you do get what you pay for. I was very pleasantly surprised that, while the prices were not "low," they were also not outrageous. I have read reviews in which people complained that their steaks were tough. That... More

My wife and I walked over from the Courtyard Marriott - easy walk. Dinner was tasty, but the meat was tough and had too much gristle. Service was okay. At times, server conversed with an Asian family who spoke Spanish and ignored us. Next time, we will try another restaurant.

I tried this restaurant twice. The first time was just ok, found the sirloin steak to be tough, everything else was great. Went back a second time with people who had a great experience with ordering the Skirt steak. If you plan to have the steak, stick with the skirt, it comes in two sizes.

Good Argentinian Restaurant. The protions are good and side dishes are really good (specially the ironed yuca). I don't recommend the "Empanadas"... they are really small. Rader than this, all the options are good.

Everything was perfect during this visit. Location, welcome, staff friendliness, food suggestions, food preparation... everything. I tried the traditional Vazio which was absolutely amazing. I indicated to the waiter about my allergies and kept those in mind the whole time.

Basic Argentinian restaurant. We sat on the terrace and had to look for the waitress or waiter a few times. Steak was overcooked and the side dishes (vegetables) cold and a small portion. It was not terrible, but with so many choices in the area, i will choose another restaurant next time.

I went with my friends, 2 locals (ticos), and we were treated to some excellent steak and wine. Don't have too much to say other than that the service was very professional & prompt, the food was delicious, and the portions were huge. Definitely recommend for fine dining in San Jose.

Visited on an off day, and were the only customers for an hour. The service was exceptional, and while I speak no Spanish, The waiter was fluent in English. Very helpful! The stake I ordered was cooked to perfection and was tender throughout. I like that the meal was served on a "board" with a groove around the outside to... More

Terruño Restaurante Argentino is one of the few restaurant in Costa Rica to offer up great quality Argentinian steaks in a great atmosphere. After entering through the 20th century wooden door, the atmosphere is a mix of urban and contemporary.If your taste buds desire a tender meat feast, Terruño Restaurante definitely serves us some of the best grilled steaks in San José. Try their exclusive Gaucho steak or perhaps the beef chorizo.Terruño Restaurante also offer fish and seafood in a Mediterranean style and homemade pasta
