Although this combination pub and restaurant serves the full contingent of Mediterranean cuisine, it's best for drinks and Spanish-style tapas (appetizers). The century-old redbrick house with stained-glass windows draws everybody from tie-clad business executives to university students. Groups liven up the large front room—the quieter, smaller back rooms maintain a bit more romance. There are umbrella-covered tables on the sidewalk to enjoy warm evenings. Olio is extremely proud that it offers a copy of its menu in Braille.

Since moving to Costa Rica 8 months ago, my wife and I having eaten at Olio's on average of three times each month. The food here isn't gourmet, but its some of the best food you'll find in Costa Rica at a very reasonable price. Even our friends from NYC, Philadelphia and San Francisco have raved about this place. Olio offers great tapas and wonderful full meal.
