This place is not a secret to those of us who live in San Jose, but maybe if you are visiting it’s a little bit hidden.
Praha is a cool bar/restaurant located in Avenida Escazu where you can grab a drink and a really good bite, lunch or dinner.  
Among my favorite dishes are: Ceviche with Fried Green Plantains, Chipotle Chicken Wings, Tomato Soup which comes with arugula, parmesan cheese and croutons and their Seared Tuna. 
Octopus Carpaccio
Tomato Soup.
Seared Tuna
Bife with choice o delicious sauce.


Desserts are yummy, try the Torta Chilena or go for the rich Chocolate Cake layered with dulce de leche.
Their lunch menu is a good deal, for $12 you get a fruit juice, a small salad, an appetiser, a main dish and a small dessert or coffee. You’ll find a nice ambiance both at lunch and dinner time.
A plus to Praha is its location: Avenida Escazu. This is one of the few places in San Jose where you can take a nice walk through shops and even  grab a movie at Nova Cinemas.
This is certainly a good place to keep in mind if you are staying near Escazu or  surrounding areas.My rating:
