The strips of chicken can be used in everything because they have no flavor. All dishes look and probably taste alike and are barely warm. Easy to walk to from three airport hotels so they have a captive audience. Take a shuttle elsewhere.

One of the few things Costa Ricans can cook well is chicken. Rosti Pollos is no exception. There are several locations and the cleanliness varies accordingly. Fresh corn on the cob is a treat here, the local Patacones have much to be desired regardless of where you eat them. The flan is quite good whether you like it with coconut... More

This place was close to our hotel. It was a quiet atmosphere for dinner. The menu had a good selection. I was impressed with the guy that came around with a dessert and corn on the cob cart. Yes---I will have a corn on the cob appetizer!!! The roasted chicken was delicious. The patacones con frijoles (fried plantains with beans)... More

If we had fast food like this at home....! Great staff. Nice menu selection with nice, consistently good food. Their fried cheese is so good, as is the chicken of course! We enjoyed fresh cooked corn on the cob on our visit tonight. And the coconut flan is so delicious. Great place in walking distance to the Hampton Inn.

You have nice ads, and lots of people (mostly tourists) coming in, but place is totally a wack inside. Tables were not clean fast enough. Bathroom was clean. Kitchen did not looked clean. Food was poor quality and that is very disappointing considering is just fried food in most cases (not elaborated dishes) . Drinks not natural and bad. Service... More

Rosti Pollo knows how to roast some moist rotisserie chicken! You can depend on it being good at any of their locations in Costa RIca. Their menu is all around good.

Dinner was ok we had the Quesidilla without chicken as an appetizer it was average and a little soggy, the ensalada were very good and the whole rotisserie chicken was juicy and very good. The fajitas were terrible with plain unseasoned chicken the only good thing was the black beans.

I didnt like the chicken here, very dry, not much flavor. The place is ok, but the food is not that good.

This restaurant is right in front of Hampton Inn next to Denny's. We went there because it was safe to walk there and it was close by. I'm giving it a lower mark because it was somewhat expensive for mid level food. Also, we got the staff randomly walking up to pitch things. That was a good education for my... More
