    This is about 5 years too late but the answer is yes!

    For cheap! At the Key Largo about 7-7:30pm they bring out some food for $7.50! They have, depending on the night, pork chops, chicken or fish, rice beans and a salad! When we went they had white marlin!

I ordered the mash potatos with it and a green salad. I'm a big guy but for some reason, I could no finish it all. What a meal. For those who are staying there all inclusive, you got to try this. If you are not staying there and you are in the San Jose area, stop by. It's a great deal.

    Barrio Amon restaurants

    I love Soda Peru for lunch time. Good portion, fair price, and tasty. HLH has a very good selection of good too. I heard they added some stuff like burrito. Can anyone confirm? Dunn Inn is hit and miss for me. Unfortunate that they have a good setup, but the food is inconsistent. Mona Lisa? Bad. They need a new cook. How can they screw up casado? Chicken was so tough. I had hard te cutting with a knife. Colombian place around the corner from Soda Peru is decent for breakfast and lunch. Cheap too.

    Food at the Sportsman Lodge

    Let me just say that Bill at the Sportsman's has good food as well. The prices are right and the food is good. Try the BLT or the Beef Burrito. There daily Casado is good too. Includes rice, beans, salad and choice of chicken, bistake or pork chop for around $6. I usually get the port chop. You know how doggs like bones.

The coffee is strong and fabulous, the best I've had in CR, and the dessert menu is excellent as well. A great place to take a lady.

    They run half price specials all the time, it's the only time one should go. Be prepared to eat the saltiest meat ever as well.

    La Princesa Marina

    The best ceviche that I've had anywhere. Its about 10-15 minutes from downtown in Sabana or a little further in Moravia. My all time favorite is the whole sea bass, without bones. It was surprisingly half empty last Saturday night, and prices have gone up a bit, which may play a role, as well.

    Still The Best

    The carpaccio was great as well, and this is coming from someone who lived in Italy for almost 5 yrs.

    Esquina is a must go!
    Always go at least twice during my stay-Tin Ho down the block is also excellent for oriental cuisine.

All taxi drivers will know where one of those three is located.

    We also hit the Hotel Costa Rica, just across from the Teatro, also easy walking distance & pretty safe even at night. The Corvina de Ajo is very good. (Ave Central/Ave Segundo @ Calle 3)

    We usually hit the Hotel Grano de Oro in the Paseo Colon area as well. You'll need a taxi for that one but it's usually only about C2,000. Again, the Corvina is excellent.

    The Balcon de Marisco in the Curridibad area is simple but good food. Expect a C5,000 taxi ride outbound M-F because of traffic and half that for the return. Lobster is good as is the Corvina.

    After the issues at the Princess Marina restaurants my friend has no interest in returning, though it wouldn't bother me a bit. There are several in town & I believe they have all reopened (after having sickened hundreds...). Similar to El Balcon de Marisco these are simple affairs with good sea food.

    Finally, Jurgens near the Mall San Pedro is very good. It's a German restaurant & the pricing is about the same - maybe a little less - that the two hotels. If the taxi driver doesn't know where it is, have him turn left at the Suburu dealer on the was to the mall, then left again (I believe). It's easy walking distance from the Suburu though I wouldn't recommend it at night.

    The French restaurant (Hotel Belvedere?) and the Italian restaurant (in the Italian building) were, to us, simply okay and not really worth a return. the French restaurant was a little too pricey in my opinion.

    Any other suggestions for **fine** dining in the Centro area? Nuestra Terra on Avenida Segundo was - to me - over priced & we'll likely not return.

    Oh...if you're a Starbucks fan the Caffe Lattes at the Spoon restaurants (Ave Central just a few hundred feet West of Hotel Presidente, opposite side & in the Mall San Pedro, 2nd floor I believe) are a good substitute for the Starbucks Frappucinos and is usually all I have for lunch while my gal gets lasagna or a sandwich.
