This past Tuesday, Tyrone and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary with a beautiful dinner and evening at the Teatro Nacional de Costa Rica.

It was one of the best nights we’ve had in Costa Rica!

Dinner At Tenedor Argentino

First of all, we got a table for two at Tenedor Argentino. We had heard a lot about this restaurant but I didn’t want to get my hopes up. From the outside it looks like nothing special, and I have yet to seriously be blown away by the food in Costa Rica. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy it… But it’s never made we want to dedicate a blog post to it!

Boy, was I pleasantly surprised.

As the name suggests, it’s an Argentinian restaurant and if you’re ever dying for some good steak, this is the place to go!

Tyrone opted for a Flank Pizza – essentially steak covered in mozzarella cheese and ham – with a side salad and mashed potatoes. I went for the Cabernet Sauvignon Sirloin, with a side salad and roast potatoes.

The wine – also from Argentina – was delicious and the desserts were amazing!

It was by far THE BEST meal we’ve had here.

Delicious Argentinian Wine!

It was also in the perfect position, just opposite Teatro Nacional de Costa Rica.

Teatro Nacional de Costa Rica

If you’re ever walking down Avendia Central you’ll spot the National Theatre of Costa Rica. The exterior of the building is exquisite and it’s surrounded by coffee shops, fast food restaurants and both the Plaza de la Cultura and Plaza Juan Mora Fernandez.

Teatro Nacional de Costa Rica

The exact address is: Avendida Segunda entre Calles 3 y 5, Centro, San Jose

It was opened in 1897 and it’s known as one of the finest historic buildings in the capital city! If the exterior didn’t grab your attention, then the interior definitely will!

Lucky for us, they were showing Frankenstein.

Ticket prices ranged from C20 000 to C7 000. It’ll be no surprise that we chose the cheapest seats in the house but to be honest, they were great! We were seated in the gallery, with a full view of the stage. I certainly wasn’t disappointed.

The show itself was very different. The cast was small – only about 8 – and the stage props were limited. But it was captivating and although we didn’t understand a word, it was a great end to the evening.

I look forward to watching another performance!
