Visited with a group of friends during a short stay in Escazu following a recommendation from someone who knows the area. The restaurant does not seem like one you would come across unless you knew where to go. We were all tired after arriving from England the previous day and due to the rain were seated inside, but the design of the interior has a lovely contemporary feel with some cool arty pieces. Although the outside terrace area looks like it would be lovely in nicer weather. The menu was a great mix of salads, burgers, pizzas and pastas which worked well for our group. The service was also great despite our Spanglish!

Thank Newcastle76

The service was great, food was fresh but average, good smoothies. Not a bad option for a lunch before you head to the airport.

The place is amazingly well decorated, such a relaxing, comfy and quite environment with nice music. They do have parking space and also wifi. The customer service is just PERFECT, they are taking care of every single detail, nice attitude and friendly, super polite. They have a very nice menu, quite mediterranean food. Food extremely good, tasty and well cooked. It is not a cheap place, but..the food quality, taste, also the service and the place make a marvelous all-in that the prices at the end are more than worthy!
Super recommended!

This place really disappointed!! Such a beautiful place with such bad food...the appetizer was a huge disappointment...the main course was worse...stay away from the pizza!! Salads are the least worst. The sangria was the worst served in Costa Rica. A huge NO NO!
