For excellent seafood, La Fuente is the place. Overlooking a busy parking lot and highway, it's perhaps not where one may expect to find delicious ceviche and stand=out langosta (lobster) but indeed it is. The inside is so small you'll be rubbing shoulders with the wait staff and bartender, but the outside tables are accommodating enough, and once the food arrives, it won't matter that there are no candles or fancy tablecloths. Though seafood is clearly the specialty, the menu includes a fine selection of other options, from filet mignon to cheeseburgers, everyone can find something to feast on here. Portions are generous and if it takes awhile for your plate to arrive, all the more time to work up an appetite to savor the flavors that won't disappoint. And, there is a full bar.
Centro Commercial de San Jose, 2000
- Best for Seafood Because: Lobster and fried calamari are among the many favorites.
- Best for Lunch Because: Sushi or mussels for starters followed by canoli for desert make Saga's lunch menu extra special.
- Best for Local Flavor Because: There's something about traditional Costa Rican style ceviche that tastes extra special.
