Costa Rica - rosti pollo & other eats?

Alice Patis Jan 5, 2009 04:03 PM

On a trip about 5 years ago, a colleague who lived there took us to a chain specializing in spit-roasted chicken - it might've been a chain but it really hit the spot. I'm not sure if it was called Rosti Pollo or that's just a nickname based on their specialty. If you know what I'm talking about, can you give me locations? Or alternatives in San Jose for good roast chicken?

In San Jose, we'll be in the Av 5/Calle 40 area but spending time downtown. We're also willing to cab it.

Also looking for suggestions for home-made tasting, tico style restaurants in Manuel Antonio area, and in the Dominical or Uvita area.
