The rooftop of Hotel Presidente is home to Azotea Calle 7, a perfect shelter from the busy –and sometimes chaotic– heart of San José. You can enter through Calle 7, between Avenida Central and Avenida Segunda, either by climbing the red spiral staircase that takes you right into the red-brick terrace, surrounded by colorful veraneras (bougainvillea plants), palm, jicaro, orange and lime trees whose fruits might end up in your cocktail.

    We had a nice experience dining on the patio. The food was wonderful but don’t waste your money on the cocktails. They are watered down. The grilled pineapple mojito I had was the worst mojito I’ve ever had. There was so much mint shoved in the glass, add a couple of large ice cubes, and your left with very little liquid and a horrible drink. My wife’s cocktail wasn’t much better. The ambience and food made the meal.

    Food was ok and the atmosphere on the roof is nice, but the service we experienced was terrible. After taking our order, our server simply never returned and we never saw her again. I suspect she was sent home? We ordered a few appetizers to share and entrees and asked for the appetizers first, but all of the food came out at once and one entree was not what was ordered. After we received our food, no other servers ever came over to our table, nor could we catch anyone's eye, and we had to go find someone for drink refills and to pay our bill. We visited for a special occasion (which was noted on the reservation) and it was, unfortunately, a disappointing experience. The ceviche with passionfruit and the tuna with mango were delicious. Entrees were tuna risotto and my partner ordered chicken, but received a fish filet. Both the tuna and fish were dry and overcooked though this may be due to sitting for some time while we enjoyed our appetizers.

    El menú de bebidas es bastante amplio para lo que contiene alcohol. Sin embargo, podrían tener más opciones para las personas que no beben, ya que la limonada de coco es lo peor que he probado, aunque lo trataron de arreglar, el sabor de la crema demasiado empalagoso y no se podía tomar. Lamentable que no tengan ni un solo jugo de frutas, teniendo tanta variedad en Costa Rica. El plato de pasta que pedí que no fuera picante, estaba cargado a la pimienta. Lo mejor de la noche fue el brownie con helado. Y por último, al momento de reservar en OpenTable preguntan cuál es la ocasión especial por la que están haciendo la reserva, esperaba algo relevante en la mesa, ya que indiqué que era la celebración de cumpleaños mío y de mi acompañante, y no había ninguna nota o mensaje por ello. Decepcionante. No volveré a ir.

    We booked a table as part of our honeymoon. Staff were lovely, food was good - a little overpriced maybe. I woke in the night with a bad stomach, but I don't know if that was down to the food, and it was thankfully short-lived.

    We loved this restaurant! We weren’t staying at the hotel where it is located but found it on open table. It is so good! My husband said it was the best food he’s had since he arrived 2.5 weeks ago and we’ve been to some great restaurants. Really cool setting on the rooftop. It was raining when we were there but the ambiance was great anyway. Our waiter was attentive and helpful also.
