Now in a new location on the Old Escazu Road between Escazu and Santa Ana. The views are great! Be sure to arrive early to select a good table at this small venue. Romantic booths are available. Loud and bustling, the food is above average and prepared by Mexican cooks. Hard to spot from the road. A great place for tequila, beer, and appetizers at sunset? My girlfriend wants to go back as soon as possible.

Unorganized and they didn't have the decency to change our order and charges us for the error anyway after ordering 6 other items. Seems like they could've afford losing 3 tortillas.

The writings on the wall attest to a wonderful experience. These must be old. Like the taquitos served. or gone off wine. You can make better Mexican food at home--yes, you. This was one of our worst meals in Costa Rica, one of our worst "mexican" meals (you;re betteroff at atco bell... way better off) and actually one of our worst meals ever. At least it wasn't also stupidly overpriced! Started off with a NICE hot salsa, okay totopos (chips)... Cold XX beer from Mexico.... but the comida... disappointing! Beyong disappointing. Tacontento has less inspired food (but better wine) and higher prices (and arguably better service), but even that is at least from-frozen pub-style pseudo tex mex. This was just crap.

The owner looked like a drunk street bum and was annoying. He comes up to the table and starts mumbling. The food was disgusting and too expensive.
