A very nice restaurant with seats inside or outside. The service is perfect and the meat was amazing. Good price for value!

Loved it! Sent there by the nearby Pura Vida Hotel, had a great first dinner in Costa Rica. We ordered a special parilla plate for two that had chicken, ribs, steak, and chorizo along with a salad with brilliant dressing and some roast potatoes. We ordered a Chicken Empanada for an app - one of our favorite things we had the whole trip. Helpful waiter who was patient with my terrible Spanish. A nice local place with good outdoor seating.

This restaurant is on the road to volcan poas not far from Alajuela. We chose the " bbq costillas" it was really great meat and the service was excellent !! We returned later and tested their empanadas which were delicious. They have good free wifi. I definetively recommend this restaurant.

We have a hotel not far from Carnes. Our guests love the place and we eat there from time to time. The mixed grill and a glass of excellent sangria make for a perfect dinner. Good steaks and sausage are hard to find in Costa Rica - Carnes gets it right every time. The service is excellent and the cooking is to perfection, thanks!

We had an empanada (good!) and the Parrillada mixta for 3 (chicken, steak, chorizo, salad, pork, potatoes/veggies, ...). Plus some individual steaks. Everything was great! I like the parrilladas mixtas; you can try a lot of different meats. Be sure to get some wine to go with it. The sangria was good!
