Family and grandpa wen for Sunday lunch. Though the food was really good and the service prompt and professional. We had steak, pasta, chicken and all tasted good and potion size was above average for Costa Rica. Recommended if you want something more than a traditional casado. The ambience is rustic--like a steakhouse should be!

Although a steakhouse, I chose the lasagna. It came with bread and a side salad. I had key lime pie for dessert. The service here was more attentive than what we had experienced on our trip to CR. This was the only restaurant that checked back on us once the food was served. They had a wine list and other... More

I took my wife, son, daughter-in-law, and three children for an anniversary celebration. We ordered two types of steak, grilled shrimp and pasta-- choices from all over the menu. Each item was perfectly cooked--not over or undercooked--presented well, with attentive service. The steaks were oversized for the price, and aged just right for tenderness. Our party ordered the filet mignon... More

We were referred here after the restaurant we went to was closed. It is touted as one of the better restaurants in San Ramon. We were extremely disappointed by the food and service. Granted, we are Americans and speak very little Spanish, but have gotten great service all over CR. The BBQ was awful! I am not sure what they... More

We've been here probably 5 times. The food is always decent, no matter what we've ordered. Staff is friendly and attentive.

We have been both consistently pleased and somewhat disappointed in various trips to Mario's over the past 2-3 years. Sometimes the food is delicious, with a quite varied menu, and sometimes it is just so-so. Hamburgers and pizza are good, some of the seafood dishes and salads can be very good, but chef turnover has been cited as a problem.... More

On my way to a business meeting coming from San Jose I stopped at this Steak House to have a quick lunch. Curiously enough they had a great selection of seafood and fish. My Tuna Steak was great. Service was slow. There was construction work done inside with lots of noise. Probable the best place in san Ramon.

Myself and 4 of my friends went to this restaurant for dinner on a saturday evening and it was one of the most terrible places we have ever eaten. We sat down and ordered a round of drinks. 1 of my friends asked for a glass of red wine and he told us it tasted like blackcurrant juice. When he... More

I am orginally from Florida and have lived in San Ramon for quite a few years.. Without any doubt, Marios "El Establo" is the best you can find for steaks in Costa Rica.This does not exclude anything on his varied menu. Everything is quality and his professional staff is always at your beckoning. His experience living in the states and... More

One of the very best values I'm had in Costa Rica in a very long time. Ordering off the lunch menu, the chicken Marsala was a generous portion and very tasty, accompanied by roasted potatoes, green salad, lots of warm bread with a seasoned butter spread (almost unheard of here in CR), as well as a cold beverage. Also included... More
