Adriana picked us up at our hotel and drove to our first stop. We had so much fun all evening at each of the 4 locations we went to. We started with coffee tasting and education, then vegan appetizers, main course and last cocktails. It was the funnest thing we did in the city of San Jose. I would do it again!
A fantastic (and delicious) experience!

Adriana plans and executes a remarkable evening of food and drink. From a fabulous coffee tasting—and education—to farm-to-table starters, a main course at a hidden gem of a restaurant, and custom cocktails at the coolest cocktail bar ever, the evening was perfect. Even if you have only one night in San Jose, don’t bother searching for a restaurant and take the foodie tour instead. And did I mention how much fun we had with Adriana? You couldn’t ask for a better host! She’s knowledgeable, incredibly kind, and passionate about food.
Fresh authentic food

Adrianna was great and the choices of food and restaurants was great. I am vegetarian and was more than catered for. Definitely will recommend this to get authentic feel of the country and people. Great job thank you we are so full!
Brilliant gastro tour!

I was picked up at my hotel exactly as arranged by Adriana, the tour leader, who spoke excellent English and was delightful company for the evening, together with her business partner, Felipe. This tour arranged for cafes and restaurants in Barrio Escalante to prepare some of their showcase offerings to be ready for us when we arrived, within any dietary preferences noted beforehand. No time is wasted examining menus and waiting for food to be prepared. Everything is pre-ordered, ready to serve shortly after arrival, and leaving us to focus on the flavours of Costa Rica. Our first stop was a cafe with a rather modest appearance but which proceeded to produce three exquisite starters, including a nut-based soup which I had never tasted before, an exquisite ceviche, and a kind of crudites topped with avocado mousse . We moved on to a lively bar to sample some craft beers and taco snacks. Finally we tasted three main courses (perfectly seared tuna, pork belly, and tenderloin with intense chocolate sauce) and a dessert at an exceptional restaurant, so confident of its capability that its kitchen is on display front of house. At every venue, we were greeted by the proprietor and had a chance to discuss the food.This tour is thoroughly recommended and a real treat for all you foodies. Whilst six or seven courses may seem like a lot, this is a tasting menu and the portion size is just right. Best of all - Adri is a perfect food guide.
