Had a business lunch here today. The staff was attentive and knowledgeable. The steak was as good as legend tells, and the prices are fair. Highly recommended.

Quality still good, taste still good but used to be awesome. Prices are similar to El Novillo Alegre while quality at El Novillo is probably one notch above, so on a relative basis I think the decision is simple. The place looks old so not a great experience on that end. You can probably spend USD35-50 per person (no wine).... More

great food and service. Great childhood memories in this restaurant. Meat is the best but if you have people in your party looking for other options - no problem they will find a great variety to choose from.

La Cascada it's a tradition in Costa Rica. This is Costa Rica style steak house, different than you traditional steak house in the USA. the flavor of the meat it's amazing!. The sides are included in the price and you can customize them as well. However for a traditional meal stick to the standard black beans, baked potato and sweet... More

Without a doubt this was the best meal in Costa Rica; the food quality and service was exceptional and on par with any if the top restaurants I've experienced anywhere. The ambiance is lacking but the trade off is the costs are considerably lower to a more formal restaurant. The steak I had was tender and tasty. My wife had... More
