The bilingual wait staff provides professional and friendly service. Service is offered throughout the day from 7 am to 10 pm. Restaurant, patio and bar are non-smoking

The pizza here was the best we have ever had! it was large enough to last for 2 days and it tasted just as good the second day. We were here with a group of 14 people and everyone's food was cooked and presented to perfection. The service was excellent and the prices reasonable for this quality restaurant. Our group liked it so much that we decided to reserve a meal for a second time. I am from Canada and I will surely miss the pizza in this restaurant.

Bienvenido a La Esquina de Buenos Aires Cuando llegas a esta casa centenaria del centro del San José de antes, es como llegar al Buenos Aires de mediados del siglo pasado. En su menú no solo encontrará, platos como la típica parrilla Argentina con sus cortes de carnes ya conocidos, sino también, excelentes pastas caseras donde se nota el aporte culinario que tuvo la gran inmigración Italiana. Dentro de sus entradas se destacan, las rabas (calamares fritos) camarones al ajillo, marlín ahumado y sus ocho diferentes tipos de empanadas. De la parrilla se destaca la entraña, punta de cuadril y la tapa de asado; sus pastas más pedidas o más buscadas son, los tres tipos de Canelones, los sorrentinos capresse y los ravioles de espinaca y gorgonzola. En los postres encontramos los infaltables, panqueque de dulce leche, de manzana y la elaboración artesanal de la Mouse de chocolate, helado de dulce de leche, higo con nuez y sambayon. Todo creado por el chef argentino Mauricio Cabado.
While on a business trip we got this place recommended by a local colleague and indeed this was the perfect choice for high quality meat, great atmosphere and very friendly and knowledgable staff. We had steaks which were perfectly to the point we had ordered (medium, medium rare, etc) and the Deserts (volcano cake eg) were very delicious too. Great place to spent a nice evening. Reservations absolutely required (easy via whatsapp).

This has been a restaurant with long time in business, I heard lots of great comments but first time experience it. The place feels great cozy, relax, don't know why but transport me to the 70's . The waitress and general service was very professional and the same time friendly, food was well served, I tried the month menu and was happy, wines were good price. I told them we were celebrating a birthday and as surprise they brought a dessert and was quite nice. Prices were reasonable. A fully recomendant restaurant in the east.

We work with small producers and venders supporting our local economy. We have outdoor and indoor Seating, take large groups with or without reservation.
We opted for this place after it being recommended in our Lonely Planet guide, and also because it happened to be really close to the hotel we were hosted. The neighbourhood is a lovely area with lots of independent cafes, restaurants and beer places.
We were in Mantras for lunch and opted for a big bowl (Fajitas Locas) and a Tico Sandwich with the soup of the day. The food was delicious and the size of the bowl was really big (but so good I finished everything!).
Then we tried a couple of the vegan cakes (one made of fruits and the other being the Tarta Chilena, and both were really good.
The price is quite honest for the quality you get as well, so I would definitely recommend it.

The restaurant La Terrasse French Cuisine is a concept of table d'hôtes of 12 covers. A private and personalized restaurant that offers you a unique experience to share with generosity the French gastronomy. An elegant place, chic ventage and romantic. The conviviality in the restaurant La Terrasse constitutes a tradition. The chef Patricia Richer receives you in a house of 1925 from Tuesday to Saturday with reservation and will have the pleasure to share with her clients a creative and contemporary French cuisine realized around organic products and the season.
Amazing. Dishes from Ardennes to Provence expertly crafted in Central America. Our respect goes to Chef Patricia Richer. Also to Gerald for his hospitality.
In discussing the absence of aperitifs and digestifs, Gerald said there are components of French cuisine that are just not available in quality in Costa Rica. I assume that this applies to many other ingredients, which makes it all the more amazing that Chef Patricia can put together the harmonious cuisine française that graces this establishment. The chef does not overstep what is permissible and our meal delivered what the menu promised.
Gerald successfully convinced my wife not to order scallops cooked to whiteness all the way through - some thing I have tried to do for years. Instead, he encouraged her to try the salmon. It was cooked through to her preference and had good taste, set off nicely against the pistachio garnish and served with a mild orange/turmeric sauce.
Besides the salmon, our meal consisted of chevre cheesecake, lamb shank, creme brulee and fondant de chocolate. We needed one wine to accompany all of these courses and complement or, ay least, not clash with them and Gerald came up with a light, fruity red, Gamay, I believe, that was a excellent companion to the whole meal. The entire wine list impressed me as being reasonably priced.
The chevre cheesecake appetizer had an uniform creaminess and a good mild lactic dairy taste nicely complemented by the tomatoes.
The honey and rosemary worked magic upon the perfectly done lamb shank and its gravy.
The caramel-throughout creme brulee was very good but,even so, we prefer the classic caramelized sugar crust with the vanilla custard.
The fondant de chocolate was absolutely delicious. We could not guess if the chocolate/cocoa was Guittard, Callebaut, or Valrhona. Turns out to be a local Costa Rican chocolate, and it was delicious.
Notable: it was not possible for my wife, for whom English is a second language, to communicate with Gerald, for whom English is also a second language, over the long-distance telephone to arrange, weeks in advance, an available time for our reservation; the understanding was just not there. No problem. The affable front desk of the Holiday Inn Aurola in San Jose called for us two nights before our desired date and got us our reservation.
