As this restaurant was walking distance from my hotel and the interior caught my eye, I decided to check it out.
the menu is mainly local Costa Rican food with vegetarian options of ceviche. since I was by myself, I couldn't order the main dishes that served 2 to 3 persons, which was the only thing "negative"; but the palm hearts ceviche as well as mango salad were delicious and the Churros are just amazing!!! Great service, good selection of cocktails.

This restaurant was our first experience in Costa Rica and in San Jose and we were not disappointed. The set up of the place is very nice, the music was great as well.
We ordered ceviches, cocktails and churros and it was a very experience! We enjoyed very much our time and we're going back next time we stop by San Jose.

Unfortunately not a great experience for us. There were several items not available which they didn't mention until after we ordered drinks and tried to order them. So the the alternative dishes we got were not up to it. The beef tacos were tasteless, dry and chewy, the guacamole had too much Parmesan no bread or chips to eat with it and the yucca was tasteless which was recommended by staff!! The staff were very pleasant but overall a very disappointing culinary experience

The place is nicely decorated and offers alternative latin American and costa rican dishes which are all beautifully presented. A great option if you are in the neighboorhood and even worth a D-tour. At noon time (weekdays) you can choose on of the 2 options for the day menu, which includes drink, starter, main dish and desert, which is more then you can eat! Check on their facebook page for the details
