The food is just amazing, I loved everything I tried and the staff was very friendly and fast. And the ambience was very nice too. The food was Latin with a very Mexican touch that makes the food new and surprising.
Even the cocktails were very good and creative.
Thank you very much to all the staff we had a great night!
I will definitely come back.

With one night in San Jose, we chose to dine at this an upscale restaurant. This place had great food, professional service and over the top presentation! Every dish came out with a mini show, my croquettes were swirling in dry ice! Very cool experience.

We also visited just before closing and they took our party of 6 anyway!

I have a kind of large experience in restaurants worldwide .. I was waiting to return in one place since a year , this is the gastro bar #elpunto in #costarica. If you go to #sanjose please don’t miss this AMAZING small restaurant, the food is an unbelievable experience! Perfect ambient and service, fair prices. I never recommend places but this one is out of this world, try it! #elpunto guys, muy buen trabajo!! Felicitaciones!! Voy a volver siempre que visite San José!!!

It’s beautiful venue with an exquisite decoration elegant and minimalistic. The culinary proposal is reach with a measured Mexican accent due to the roots of talented chef and owner Rodrigo. Elegant tacos and and Octopus and the managed of flavors is balance and delicate.... as Arnold said:I will be back.
