“Really good meat!”
Review of Toro Tinto

Toro Tinto
Ranked #3 of 52 Restaurants in Santa Elena
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$15 - US$30
Description: Our specialty is a small variety of grilled delicious beef cuts, from grass-fed cattle (more flavorful and healthy steaks), you will also find a small selection of red wines (mainly from South America) to accompany your steak. All carefully selected to go very well together in a great dinner or lunch. We also cook on the grill some other dishes like chicken, salmon or papillon tilapia.

Wow - this was an unexpected treat in a town with so-so food. Great steaks, perfectly cooked and lovely service.

It is a beautiful restaurant and has a great menu with options for all tastes, the presentation of the dishes is super detailed, the order and efficiency of the customer service are exemplary.

My friends and I went to dinner here quite late after the night tour (9:15pm) and the restaurant was empty (low season). We were greeted warmly and welcomed. We decided to share a bottle of wine and our waiter was very helpful- and he continued to be very helpful and kept up conversation with us most of the night (didn’t speak English but one of us could speak Spanish pretty well). The food was pretty good - the steaks were a little under cooked but otherwise delicious. After desert our waiter made us a local cocktail on the house and took us to a secret ancient tree grove which was absolutely amazing!!! Costa Rica has the most amazing people and Toro Tinto was no exception.

If you like meat, this is your place in Santa Elena.
Few choices but all so good that you can't complain.
Meat is great, the only thing that could be improve is the service, just a little bit slow (but you can have a glass of one red wine waiting for the main course).

We got in after a Nightwalk in Santa Elena, just before closing time. The waiter was very kind. Nice restaurant with amazing food. We got dishes with beef and chicken, both very tasteful! Not the cheapest restaurant but probably one of the best in town.
