Home to the “Tierra Tica show”. Ram Luna restaurant is perched high above the mountains of Aserri, overlooking the Central Valley. From this unique vantage point, you can admire the auspicious panoramic views at dusk, and then take in the brilliance of the lights emanating from the capital. Each Wednesday and Thursday night, the Mirador Ram Luna Restaurant is decked out with marimba and “cimarrona music”, traditional Costa Rican folk dancing and clowns, in the midst of typical Costa Rican cuisine including the delicious recipes of our grandparents.
The restaurant Ram Luna is located in the hills above Aserrí, only 9 miles South from San Jose. At Ram Luna, one immediately notices that the restaurant is brimming with memorabilia of Costa Rican tradition, live music, and authentic folklore, where the most beautiful memories of times, now past, can be relived.
The delicious buffet and decorations are in keeping with the traditional Costa Rican cuisine. You will have the opportunity to savor a variety of traditional Costa Rican dishes such as: (la olla de carne) a traditional meat stew, (el picadillo de arracache) chopped arracache root, (la carne en salsa) cubed meat with special sauce , (empanaditas de queso) cheese turnovers, (el chifrijo) one small bowl with white rice, red beans, pork meat and pico de gallo, (los chicharones típicos de la zona) deep-fried pork Aserrí style, not to mention, our delicious traditional desserts that will tempt any dieter.
And then, the show begins. Tierra Tica is presented with pleasure and spontaneity. It is a journey through the most representative stages of Costa Rican folklore concluding with the Cimarrona which is the jubilant dance of the giants, which takes place outside the restaurant overlooking the city while several local artisans show you beautiful pieces of jewelry made with stones, tree seeds and natural fibers, that you can buy as souvenirs to take back home.
