    We came here on a whim for our last night in Costa Rica and we loved it!! We wanted to try a lot of different items, so we asked for the best ones. The octopus ceviche tostada, the fish tacos, the birria short ribs were our favorite of what we had. We also got the side order of cauliflower and it was INCREDIBLE!!! Don't miss out bc the sauce and char is elite. For dessert, we got the cheesecake in a berry sauce with caramel popcorn on top—such great flavors all melded together!! The cheesecake was so light and fluffy. We also tried 2 gin and tonics and they were huge and delicious! We loved the berry one of the best. This place is also hella cute. Great for big groups and pics!

    We had a nice experience dining on the patio. The food was wonderful but don’t waste your money on the cocktails. They are watered down. The grilled pineapple mojito I had was the worst mojito I’ve ever had. There was so much mint shoved in the glass, add a couple of large ice cubes, and your left with very little liquid and a horrible drink. My wife’s cocktail wasn’t much better. The ambience and food made the meal.

    Strongly recommend visiting this restaurant! The staff were friendly and accommodating (we arrived slightly late due to traffic), the food was exceptional and unique, and the location itself is a gorgeous, historic building.
