Bacchus

¡Do a culinary trip through Italy in a rural late XIX century house! We are specialists in artisanal italian cuisine. We cook with classic and fresh ingredients that give unique flavors to our plates. Inside the restaurant, walls vibrate with art collections, which create different spaces that fill the house with color.

The 5 of us had a nice lunch with good wine and nice carpaccio (beef & salmon) as appetizers and the Margherita Pizzas were perfect - thin and tasty. We ask for the CAVA location in the restaurant and I highly recommend it for a group of up to 6 people in a nice and private space.

Doris Metropolitan

Reviewed By Rob C - Santa Ana, Costa Rica

Been there 4 times already because the food is always on point. I have had some of the best wine and dine experiences there except for the service.
As a person who lived in Paris, I must recognize that the service in Doris is on par to the one in Paris... which is a terrible thing to say. There is only one waiter who has been kind in that restaurant; the rest have been constant nay-sayers with condescending tones.
If the administration someday decides to reconsider its staff etiquette, I will be happy to increase the rating.

On the plus side the skirt steak, the New York Steak, the eggplant entrée, the carcioffi caldi, and the OMG the bread... best house bread. Seriously.

Da Marco Italian Restaurant

Fantastic food and nice atmosphere. A little hard to find but worth the effort!

Reviewed By Yoli C - Bogota, Colombia

What a joy is was to go for lunch or dinner to Da Marco´s Restaurant. The friendly atmosphere started with a lovely welcoming of the kind waiters guiding guests to the spotless tables. The menu has an excellent selection of delicious dishes prepared with great quality and good care, including warm homemade bread and pastas, steaks were particularly tender with exceptionally flavour as well as the fish and pastas. Marco the kind owner and cheff is always there to greet you ready to please you! ! His desserts and puddings are also so creative and tasty. We went to Da Marco at least six times and always very well looked after, professionally with superb quality. They made our visit remarkable and worthwhile. So onto the next time!

Andiamo La

Reviewed By Luv2Go56 - Atlanta, GA

Andiamo La is a fantastically beautiful restaurant with excellent Italian food and a vast wine selection. Our business partner treated us to dinner on our last night in Santa Ana. The ambiance was immediate with the first step into the place with the high ceilings and glorious wine cellar to the right! We were given the choice of either patio - one on the front and one of the left back - as we eat early and it was still daylight. Enjoyed the fresh air and view from the front patio as we enjoyed a pre-dinner drink.
All of the lighting and decoration is breathtaking - got to experience it with natural daylight and later as we left after dark. Adds to the ambiance and experience. Place was hopping and people were pouring in as we left - a sign of a great restaurant.
Everything ordered was perfectly cooked and delicious for the 4 of us. Can't say enough about the food and the service. Wine was exceptional and perfect temperature. Service was impeccable and attentive. Will certainly return on future trips!

Porky's Bar-B-Q

Reviewed By gr8xracer

We visited Porky’s for the first time yesterday with another couple. I’ll start with the beer selection......WOW! They had the LARGEST selection of imported and craft beers I have found anywhere in Costa Rica. I’m not sure how many beers they had on tap but I would guess 20....maybe 30! I had one that was Domingo something.....it was fabulous! I would have loved to have sampled all of their beers on tap!
Now for the burger....as my title suggests....this was one BIG burger. I had the hamburguesa Mexicano....it was loaded with guacamole, pico de Gallo, and chips and more. It was a little messy but I don’t mind that. It was so large that I could only eat 3/4 of it. I also had the onion rings....delicious. They also bring a variety of special sauces to your table. We tried a bit of each of them. All were excellent but I particularly enjoyed the green salsa and the garlic mayonnaise. Overall, this is going to be on our list of go to places to eat when we’re in the Lindora área.

Reviewed By Mauricio V

Besides they’re delicious India style food made by real Indian people, I must highlight they’re consistent quality. We keep going there because they have never let us down.
Dining at they beautiful Terrace, next to several other good restaurants, is a delight. We also celebrated my wife’s birthday in a private room with a table that accommodates about 12 people.
Our last experiences were trying the Delivery service with Apetito 24. There is of course the loss in ambience, service, appearance and cutlery, but the food is jus as delicious.
One odd drawback: they only speak English! No Spanish!

alTAPAS

Tapas bar and wines by the glass. Warm and contemporary atmosphere, free wifi, Terrace

Reviewed By Tom C - Irvine, California

The food here is very good and quite authentic. We happened across this place randomly (it was near the AirBnB we had rented and we were in the mood for something non-Costa Rican to end our trip) and were quite pleased. We were ravenous and ordered a lot of tapas... the highlights were the seafood paella, the pork trotters with chickpeas and the octopus with garlic sauce, although all the food was solid. Sangria was good not great, but overall, the restaurant had good service, ambiance and food. A great way to end our trip to Costa Rica.

Aroi Thai

Reviewed By Max L

This is a restaurant to enjoy a meal without haste, if you want to be eating in 15 minutes, go to McDonalds.
They have outstanding made dishes, they do them by order, nothing but is precoocked. So yes, it may take a but longer to get the food, but is well worth it, besides the did put a lot of effort ensuring a nice ambiance for you to enjoy that time. Service is good, quite good actually, they respect your space but they promptly fulfill any need you may have when asked to do so.

Dropped in without booking with 2 kids and just had s selection of starters but all were excellent at a reasonable price. Nice service also and very welcoming. Great little local place and much more than a pizza place.
