Delightful Places to Eat
Con pan y vino, se anda el camino.
With bread and wine you can walk your road.
~ Spanish proverb
If nothing else, San José offers a great variety of eating establishments
for all tastes. One of the most enjoyable things we do on our vacation is
to find new “favorite” places to eat. Our personal criteria are quite flexible
– sometimes we look for ambiance, service, the character of the place, or
even the characters in the place. On other days we search for the best view
or value. In every case we look for quality food. Don’t forget, several of the
hotels above have very fine dining rooms for all three meals; we also mention
some good places to nosh in the Nightlife section. The following eateries
should provide you with a pleasing combination of good food, good
vibes and good times.
Except where noted, reservations are not usually necessary unless you
have a large party or specific needs.
Although we made every effort to be
as thorough, complete and as accurate
as possible, things change in
Costa Rica – sometimes muy rapido.
Prices change faster than anything,
so we indicate relative price levels
here, using dollar signs.
