We had a wonderful evening. This is a beautiful restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. Food was fantastic with great wine pairing. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Reasonably priced $128 for 2 people for the tasting menu with wine pairing.

It's not just about the food - which is AMAZING, every flavor is unexpected, fulfilling and simply delicious! The arquitecture and taste on the decorations, full of details in every corner, in every nook... This is quite an experience in every sense, with well prepared staff which will guide you through the menu, from an appetizer, main course and my personal favorite DESSERTS!!

From the outside you see an old building that has been remodeled. From the inside you find an oasis.

Service, med by Andy is amazing.

The food.... wow!

The menu is small, but you will want it all. My friend and I decided to try all appetizers to share. The octupus, Trout, Fish and the lamb.... amazing! The lamb was my favorite.

Desserts.... The sphere, a perfectly made ball of chocolate is amazing. The churros made of plantain... are a delight.

You cant leave San José without treating your senses here at Silvestre.

I had host a regional meeting and because for most of visitors was their first time in Costa Rica I choose this restaurant based on a recommendation from other friends.

The restaurant is located in one of the oldest neighborhood of san jose famous among the locals for the European architect influence. The restaurant is small but very nice and cozy. We reserve the terrace and we had 6 plater/wine food sampling inspired in the costa rican typical villages fairs.

As local was great to have local food but in a fantastic new presentation. For the visitors was excellent opportunities to experience a bit of the Costa Rica cuisine in one night. We all enjoyed it!!!

Since then I have been quite a few times with my family and friends and every time they exceed my expectation. Fully recommend for casual or business dinners
