I visited here to have lunch on a Sunday afternoon. It's proximity to Cima Hospital and escazu, CR made it a convenient choice for a special meal. The staff gets 5 stars. Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. Going above and beyond to make the visit special. The steak was a glorious cut of meal. Prettily prepared although unseasoned. Veggies were tasty and the cocktails were utter perfection. Prepared by a master.

Tintos and Blancos is an upperclass restaurant in Costa Rica. The prices are higher than normal for Costa Rica, and for a USA restaurant they would be too high. But the food is worth the price. I've been to other restaurants in Costa Rica that have similar prices, but are very disappointing. This one is not. You will be very happy trying their vast wine selection, and the food will be a nice reminder of home and civilization. Lol just kidding, but not really. If you have been to Costa Rica then you know what I mean.

While part of a chain operation the quality of food and service is excellent. We have eaten here on multiple occasions and it has never been disappointing. Depending on the noise level inside and the cool evening temperatures there is comfortable outdoor seating with a lovely fountain and passersby.

We went to Tintos y Blancos at the Terra mall with about 6 other couples – a large group of friends – because we had heard wonderful things about this restaurant and some of our group had good experiences there previously. To be honest we were a little disappointed but perhaps that was because we had high expectations. The food was good but not great, and fairly expensive (as was the wine but they had a good selection). The service was also OK, but just. It seemed that they brought the food out randomly such that some members of our group were finished their plate while others were still waiting to be served. The best part was that were seated on the upper level with a great view of a duo below playing authentic Costa Rica and Central American music and doing it very well. I will probably go back at some point to give it another chance, and maybe with lower expectations and a smaller group they will do better.
