Restaurante Grano De Oro
This upscale establishment in the heart of San José delivers a fine dining experience without sacrificing personal warmth. The staff will kindly walk you through the menu as you decide between the roasted pork with yucca croquettes and the sea bass with coconut sauce. The seared scalloped appetizer, topped with crisp duck prosciutto and served on a bed of turmeric-spiced fennel, is not to be missed. Reserve an inside table for a more posh experience, or sit in the courtyard for an equally elegant but more relaxed vibe. Guests of Hotel Grano de Oro are lucky enough to make nightly visits to the bar and sample the extensive wine and cocktail options, imbibing to their hearts' content while enjoying the full dining menu. Every meal here is truly special.
