This was my third visit to this restaurant and the food never disappoints, though the portions are rather small and pricey. Service was just OK, the staff probably need to organize a bit better and communicate among themselves, but they get the job done in the end. Don´t leave without trying one of their desserts; the pears with blackberry sauce... More

By far, this is the best Spanish restaurant in Costa Rica. I've visited this place several times and in all of them, quality and service was very good. You must try the roasted pork, is just awesome. Their wine list has enough for every taste. It is not cheap, but worth it .

Excellent menu and wine list. We surprised Eduardo the waiter with an unbooked group of 11 people and they exceeded every expectation. Wonderful and attentive service, food prepared and presented to a high level. Not inexpensive, but worth it.

Came here, looking for a place to eat on our last night in Costa Rica before flying out the next morning. Specifically came here looking for a place that was vegetarian-friendly for myself. My husband and I ordered sangria and 4 different tapas. Firstly, the sangria was pretty good... probably one of the best I've ever had. For tapas, I... More

I started with a Pulpo Pimenton which was a sauted/grilled octopus but with a strong papirka overtone. The seafood was tender but the dry taste of paprika was less interesting. I tried the Corvina (Sea Bass) Mediterrano which was a flavorful tender fish with a very strong sauce of tomatos, olives , onions... To me, the sauce detracted due to... More

Small but good selection of tapas. Main dishes are really good too! I love going there with my family or friends and ordering a bunch of tapas. It's great, we all get to try every dish. What I like the most, is that they have dishes I don't see often around Costa Rica, like the pork cheekbones and fresh Bacalao!... More

Their menu of Tapas isn’t as large as other Spanish restaurants but their main course have abundant flavor! They have everything from their pork "cochinillo", rabbit, fish, and beef options. Of course, a Spanish restaurant can’t "be" without the famous Paella! Estación Atocha offers savory paella for two or more persons!
