Then please tell the owner for me, that his gringo food is overpriced, his onion rings are undercooked, but his bucket beer prices are just right. :D


He says thanks for your input, prices will stay the same (because NOT Expensive) and onion rings are great. And I say I agree. I'm curious as what is expensive? Also, 9 monster flat screens with 3 different states feeds. You won't get that anywhere else. I'll be down there Sunday night, and I believe the main man will be there as well. Come on down and let him know what you think.

Au coutaire; the onion rings I received were undercooked and greasy, although admittadly, onion rings are greasy as a rule. I reviewed the entire menu and noticed pretty much gringo pricing on the food that is why I decided on a relatively inexpensive item, but I did notice that a bucket of beer was competitively priced, but if he thinks he is competitive with the local gringo watering holes because of the flat screens then have at it. I have sampled the place and would probably return if it happened to be Sunday and the NE Pats were playing. Cheers. :D

Now to complement the Philly cheesesteaks, they need to offer Casino Dogs. Yummy!

Great place that I like to eat comdia chino is in Plaza Viquez called Kim Kom. They have several fish (Corvina) dinners that are delicious. It's right in front of Banco de Costa Rica.

My 2 CRC's. The best meal I had in san Jose was at the little open Colombian place right next to Bar Poas. Had the Pescado entero-whole bass(Corvina) delicately fries with very lightly seasoned bread crumbs. Great salad with a tangy dressing and some of the most perfectly cooked and high quality fluffy white rice I ever had. < 2000 colones.

Thanks Sky, I have walked by that place many times, but never went in. Will put it on my list. Do you happen to remember when it opens for lunch?

Sorry I'm not sure but I believe it's open by 11:30-12:00 hope you like it. By the way I forgot to mention the meal also came with a bowl of chicken /potato soup which was also really good.

If you mean to non-guests the way it used to be, the consensus here is, "Probably not." I'd love to be mistaken in this.

There was nothing like relaxing and watching the world go by in the morning!

You can recapture some of that feeling at the street-side part of El Patio at the Balmoral, across from El Presidente. More of a hustle type atmosphere though. Tell the waiter you're waiting for a business partner to show up.

Restaurante Doris near Santa Ana is great for steaks, atmosphere,etc. with lots of hanging aged beef in the see-in coolers. Best place I've found in 20 years and, yes, a little pricey but top shelf all around.

Nice looking place there. I checked out the website. Not a cheapskate when the food is good. Just for reference would you get out of there $50 or under for 1 person for a good steak, a salad and a decent glass of red wine?
