Our flight arrived late, and we were ravenous. Was recommended this place by the hotel and LOVED IT. Relaxed environment, super attentive staff, tasty food. What more could you ask for?

There's a good ambiance for young people. The music may be a little loud sometimes, but it's good if you are there to have fun with a group of friends. There are reasonable appetizers and the cocktails are really good. I loved the strawberry margarita. Any time I'm in Liberia, I like to go to Palermo and have a good... More

Palermo was recommended by one of the staff members at the Hilton Liberia. He was right on: a very nice menu of local options and the service was excellent. There are different areas you can sit in (close to the large screen, quieter areas, by the bar, etc.) We were able to relax and hang for a couple of hours... More

I go to Palermo every Wednesday evening for a free English-Spanish event put on by Instituto Estelar Bilingue and it is always a good time! There is a great selection of drinks that are all well-priced, the food is usually really good and reasonably priced, and the service is good. There are usually a lot of people in the restaurant...

Great place to hangout in the evening. Food is simple but very tasty, everything is very fresh. The waiter spoke a little English, but he was trying to help us to understand the menu and offered really great dishes. We tried few drinks they were tasteful, not too strong which was perfect after long day walking in the park. The... More

Great vibe! Great prices! They have indoor and outdoor sections with big screens for soccer and music videos. This is more of a hangout place as opposed to a disco so keep that on mind when choosing your venue.

The food was great and affordable..the service was five star and way better than other restaurant we've been to in the area. I enjoyed everything.

They have the best food and cocktails in Liberia Costa Rica. Very tourist friendly. Very clean and sanitary conditions.
A combination of local Costa Rican cuisine combined with American cuisine.
Very nice Bar, nice patio restaurant and garden area witha nice little water fall. Two different music athmospheres with nice videos.
I would highly reccomend this place to everyone.
Thomas dinarte the general manager very customer service oriented. I was impressed.
