Things to Know
- Definitely make reservations ahead of time. There's a link right on the main website. Expect to have to plan a few weeks in advance for prime weekend meal times. It just gives you something to look forward to.
- Order a cocktail. They are priced respectably at $9 and just as thoughtful as the meal you're about to eat. If you like lemon-based drinks, I would recommend the Ladybird, but the cocktail menu rotates weekly.
- Order a few plates to share. Honestly unless you are starving, dinner for two sharing 3 small plates would be plenty. If you are ordering a large plate each, you really don't need any additional small plates, again unless you have a really large appetite.
- No need to dress up -- this place is a little outside of the main downtown area and has a decidedly low-key vibe. Jeans and bed hair wouldn't put you amiss in the local crowd.
- Save room for desert, Your bill comes with a small piece of dark chocolate from Escazu next door -- a little hint to drop by before you head to your car for more artisanal delights.
