Fodor's Review

Camille Ratton, a longtime fixture on San José's restaurant scene, owns and manages one of the capital's hippest dining spots. The panini and pastas are the standouts, but Kalú's menu incorporates Costa Rican, Thai, and American elements, too. For one of those Americanized touches, try the hambuguesa Kalú with portobello mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, and hummus. Browse in the adjoining art gallery before or after your meal, or while you wait for your food.
