Las Planchas Steakhouse & Bar

Reviewed By Greivin S

Good steak house that is close to the airport. The restaurant is located in the same property of Hotel Airport. The location is not the best because there is not turn to the left (return to Alajuela or airport) so the driver must be carefully when drive back. The quality is very good and prices acceptable.the y also have a big salon for meetings in case some company or group need to do something special.

I am living in Alajuela for a year, and of all the places I have been in Costa Rica, La Hendija is one of my favorite food places and definitely my favorite in Alajuela. They have the best tortilla de queso and crema sorbetera I have had in Costa Rica, and overall incredibly delicious typical food. I highly recommend this place! Look no further- it is truly a hole in the wall, very cultural, typical, centrally located near the cathedral, and an incredible deal for incredible food! My favorite! YUM.Hi Rachel, thank you very much for your comments, we work everyday to offer the most typical costarrican food to our clients...We hope to see you again...

Cafe Delicias

Reviewed By CobaltConnection

You know a place is bad when the locals are complaining. Our family is Tico and we decided to try this place for brunch. Bad decision. No welcome. No smiles. No talking. Nothing. The Tico family next to us complained as well. Food was edible. Would not return.

El Novillo Alegre

Reviewed By Ayub S

Great place for when you have that feeling of have the best steak ever, because they will serve you that. The sides and desserts are as good as the main dishes. It combines Argentinian and International grilling styles that will satisfy any need you may have. It's worth trying, but the price is something to consider

Centro Restaurant

Reviewed By Otherguru

I went there for diner on a Sunday evening. This was the easiest option as I was staying at the Courtyard hotel. This was the Super Bowl 50 night, the TV sound was so loud that I had to sit at the very end of the restaurant. I ordered a pizza for $14, which was decent.Contrary to other reviewers, I have not been amazed by the service. There were many waiters and waitresses walking around but none of them seemed to care about me. I had to call them a couple of times to get more water, a coffee and the bill. Next time, I would go outside in the mall just opposite the hotel.

Fresco

Reviewed By aannafred

My friend and I visited for lunch - we both had the daily special - she had the fish I had the chicken. Both very good. It came with some of the BEST falafels i have ever had. And my friend raved about the (included) salad and dressing (and she doesn't usually like salads) The daily special is reasonable priced - the other items might be a little bit high. I would say try it - especially the falafels!

Happy Land

Reviewed By Barry S

The folks at the Tree Houses hotel recommended Happy Land to us for dinner. It's a typical Costa Rican restaurant but in addition to the typical Costa Rican dishes, the menu includes, surprisingly, some Chinese dishes and Ceviche. Two members of our party had the "grande" Ceviche for dinner and found it to be delicious and certainly very "grande" (more than they could eat). I had a "lomo" (beef steak) dish which also came with a small tasty salad and side dishes. My wife had a shrimp dish with rice and beans. The food was quite good. The Margaritas were excellent. And the service provided by the super friendly, efficient and thoughtful Marco was excellent. We enjoyed dinner so much that we came back for lunch the next day!

Reviewed By anyone4tea1

The food in here is small by American standards, but delightfully presented, and perfectly cooked. We ate breakfast twice here, and dinner, and every meal was beautiful, tender, and cooked to perfection .Jorge is particular skilled in service - I don't often come across people to his standards. The other staff were wonderful, but he deserved a particular mention.We ordered breakfast on our second morning, and I specially ordered a croissant. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven when I'd finished it, and a couple of minutes later two more warm croissants appeared quietly beside me.

Reviewed By 907feliped

In this restaurant prices are high and service is terrible(slow and not courteous) and the food is not that good. I can't say it is bad but for the price you pay it should better. When I went there I ordered an appetizer, the restaurant was empty, and I wait over 20min then I called the waiter and complaint his response was: - it is not my fault it is the kitchen's fault. The main course took over 30min to arrive. I have not reason to return to this place ever.
