Priced right, big portions, busy all day, gringo fave, Barrio Amon area. It's a soda so don't expect fancy place.

Both were excellent. I went on a Saturday which was not busy, had a ceviche de corvina and Pepsi light. Cost was 4,400 colones. The ceviche was really good. I asked for it picante and it came with some red aji (chile) that was lethal. Plenty of fish, a piece of yuca, a piece of corn and som squash rounded... More

I'm not a seafood lover, but the seabass with fried plantains and veggies I had here last week was unbelievably good. For 5 dollars the amount of food you get is considerable, to the point I couldn't finish my plate. They also have natural fruit shakes to die for. You can tell it's popular with the local office crowd because... More

I still cannot believe I have been going to Costa Rica since '99 and have just recently discovered this hidden gem near the Holiday Inn Aurola and Parque Morazon. Don't go before 1:15 since all of the civil servants at the INS building know it is the best restaurant in the area. The seafood soups are very good, despite the... More

It is located near the Holiday Inn in San Jose and is open for lunch only. Most of the clientele are Costa Rican Government... More

Located near the downtown Holiday Inn and recommended by the concierge for "local" food, I tried it out. The first night, it was closed so I'm not certain if it has dinner service, as the entire area near the restaurant seems to shut down at night. I went for lunch, and the small restaurant was packed with locals. I had... More

This is a great local restaurant about one block from the Holiday Inn downtown San Jose. All the food is cooked from scratch. Seafood is their speciality. Its a lunch only restaurant and does a great business crowd. So go early or late as they get busy during the lunch hour. My favorite is Corvina with galic. This is an... More
