One of my 5 most memorable restruants in the world is in san jose. it's called 'the monastery' and is located up on top of the highest peak in san jose. it's approxmately a 30 -45 minute cab ride from san jose but well worth the trip. the 365 view at the top makes you feel like your'e in heaven. the waiters dress as monks, and the ambiance is very peaceful. the restruant is lit with candles so you get a good view of the city through the floor to ceiling glass windows. after dinner, you can tour the grounds of the former monastery, and walk thru the garden. very romantic place.

Favorite Dish: who remembers the food with a view like that????what ever i had,it was delicious (salmon, i think) and the creme brulee was to die for.

Address: outside of san jose, costa rica
