We ended up in Don Luis because where we intended to go was closed, and it was the happiest accident you can imagine. Then we turned around and went again -- a few days later -- because it was just *that* delicious and just *that*...great of an experience. My sister, niece and I are vegetarian, and we had the vegetarian "burger" -- a delicious creation of stacked veggies and grilled pineapple, the plantain soup, and the salad. The second time they got pizzas and I had the veg quesadilla (which is two solid meals by itself). My brother in law had the pork chop the first time and the flatiron steak the next, and loved both. The drinks are also great -- the cocktail list is not to be missed. I don't remember our server's name the first time, but the second time we had Mario, and he was simply wonderful. Attentive, helpful, engaging, and prompt. Really a delightful experience.More

Mario and Andres were so lovely. They were kind and helped us with anything. Even helped us practice our Spanish. The food and drinks were divine and I would 100% recommend this to everyone

Came here with some friends after a night hike and was taken aback with the kind service and warm atmosphere. I had the lobster and it was DELICIOUS! Our server, Mario, was so helpful and friendly; he really made our experience wonderful. Highly recommend ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a very nice resource in Costa Rica as we were trying to find a place to eat, we had the pizza and a glass of wine and an after latte. A great place to chill and watch the rain as you try to...get dry.More

Our family stayed in a rental house nearby and chose this restaurant simply for the location. But it exceeded our expectations! Service was fabulous. Our waiter Luis was excellent. The food was a perfect combination of creativity, fresh ingredients, flavor and execution. Although this menu...was not traditional Costa Rican food, the ingredients seemed very local and it added a nice variety for our trip. Also great vegetarian options for those interested. The restaurant was very clean and nice ambience.More

We had dinner here at Don Luis….it was A very creative take on vegetarian burger and the flavors worked impeccably! The bruschetta pan was very delicious and the avocado salad was exceptional …..made with cucumber slices for the salad bowl! Luis was a gracious waiter...and helped us with our Spanish! Terrific dinner & good sized portions for reasonable price.More
