Tour Description

Our Farm-To-Table Food Tour in San Jose "Barrio Escalante", will take you into the heart of traditional Costa Rican cuisine, as each dish is prepared with fresh products that are all sourced from ingredients grown within the country. Our Tico chefs will explain to you the concept of each local dish, as well as the modern twist they have added to the country's food scene with each of their restaurants.
At all restaurants, coffee shops, and cocktail rooms, you will be welcomed by the chef, manager, or owner as they explain to you what goes into preparing the signature dishes and drinks hand-crafted by each proprietor. 
The restaurants for this tour were chosen due to their farm-to-table concept and innovation with traditional Costa Rican cuisine. You will consume mostly fresh, locally sourced organic greens and vegetables during the tour.

We specialize in designing exclusive, personalized city food tours in San Jose that will take you from the roots of Costa Rican traditional cuisine to modern, original food creations. Signature dishes by the best local chefs! We offer mainly city or urban food tours in San Jose, but we have a couple of day trips from San Jose to rural areas where you can experience traditional gastronomy and learn about agriculture, like pineapple fields, cacao, coffee, etc.


Very thoughtfully planned out and immersive tour. Appreciated the amount of time Adriana spent with us. I think we just weren't ready for the amount of time the tour took and the amount of food we had to eat. We were stuffed by the end but really appreciate getting to explore a very cool area of San Jose.

Would throughly recommend. Food excellent quality from places we would never have found on our own. Particularly enjoyed the coffee tasting - so unique and learnt so much. Oscar was an excellent guide and good company.

Such a unique tour and experience in San Jose! We booked this tour on the backend of a month long Costa Rican trip and it was easily some of the best Costa Rican food we have had since being in the country. Our guide, Oscar, was very knowledgable about Costa Rica, gave us interesting facts, and was enthusiastic about the tour. Our group was small and intimate so we were able to get to know the other travelers. All the restaurants were delicious, had great vibes, and drinks to pair! The minor feedback I would give is solely logistical; we sometimes waited a really long time between dishes which made us late to our next stops during the tour and the tour duration was longer than expected. Lastly, we LOVED the coffee experience. We learned and tasted amazing coffee and appreciated a different sort of coffee tour versus the more common touristy ones you see when traveling. And, the cold brew mojitos were to die for! Highly recommend :)

Our group of four had a great time on this tour. Oscar was an awesome host. He was very personable and knowledgeable. The tour is a great opportunity to visit restaurants and bars we would never have had a chance to experience. It was great to taste the flavors of Cost Rica.

We had the BEST time with Oscar our tour guide. We all loved the food and were so stuffed by the end. We loved each portion of the tour and our favorite was the mixology at the end! We loved getting to walk in the neighborhoods and get a sample of Costa Rica!
