the place is beautiful, a restored house with an amazing garden and lighting. It is a treat to see the decorations. The food is tasty, but mostly organic and very healthy.

Great for fresh soups, saladas and in house made tea infussions that are fantastic.

Leave room for dessert... theyvare the best in San Jose.

We love this special, welcoming restaurant. With it's diverse selections, from vegetarian, fish and desserts,you can't go wrong.
The service is is excellent, yet non invasive. We haven't had a bad meal or experience yet. In fact we come every morning for lattes and a wee treat.
It is hip, yet relax, do yourself a favour and give it a try, you won't be disappointed!

My husband and I visited straight from our flight from the UK and just went here as it was nearby to our hotel. We were both a bit scruffy and tired looking, and when we looked around realised that everyone else looked quite smart so we felt a bit awkward! Food was nice though, we both had fish tacos. Cost wise it was slightly pricey but based on the other guests I presume it is more upmarket than other local places.

Camille Ratton is an inspired chef who has created another varied and attractive menu. She and her partner have created a welcoming space with some quiet corners, in spite of the hustle and bustle of their popularity. It is not inexpensive but I would like to return.

After being ignored multiple times by waiters, finally got to order, food came out, and was as bad as service. Undercooked fish tacos, batter was saturated with oil, not cooked all the way through. We were really unimpressed, very high prices for the food/ service you get.
