Our Easter Sunday 2021 dinner at Don Rufino was one of the best meals we've had in several years. The appetizers were distinctive and good. My tuna entree was excellent. My wife's octopus entree was even better -- a perfect preparation. Our older daughter had a pork chop, which was tender and tasty.
Staff was attentive but not intrusive. Our daughters were amused by the servers shooing away a local dog that REALLY wanted some of the lamb chop that a nearby table ordered (which looked and smelled delicious).
Constructive criticism: We saw on our way out there there were some kid-friendly options not listed on the menu, but we didn't know about them. Although fine dining restaurants don't really cater to kids, it would have been nice to know that for our younger daughter.
Our bill was about half of what we would have expected for a meal of this quality back home in the midwestern U.S. If we're able to take another trip to Costa Rica, we will be sure to include a dinner here.
