Amazing food and wonderful service! We had a wonderful meal including tapas and wine. Better than Barcelona and Madrid! Highly recommend. View from balcony was beautiful. Able to see the lights of San Jose'. Service was superb! We will be back!

The view from the place is beautiful, the attention is incredible. They offer very good Spanish wine at a very good price and the food is good as well. I recommend it!

Very nice place, a gateway close to the city in a really rustic but fine environment. Food was awesome, however it needs more descriptions for those who do not know that much about Spanish food. Morcilla is the best I have tried. Prices some good, some off, but overall worth for a special occasion

We went based on the ratings I looked at on TA. This is a mediterranean look place with lots of character, but not overly classy and that is in a good way. The wait staff (Jennifer) was excellent and we ordered two tapas and two medium sized dishes to share. The chorizo was very good and the potato tortilla was only average. The octopus dish was really good and the prawns were in second place as they were very slightly over-cooked so a tiny bit tough but still good. This would be a great place for a party or group dinner. Will go back for sure. Good value for money.

Thank Terry W
