Everty is proud of the longstanding success and reputation of Jürgen’s, the beloved restaurant that blends European influences and Costa Rican ingenuity in the lively, classic neighborhood of Barrio Dent, San Jose.

We’re excited to announce that the existing building will be demolished, and a new property will be constructed featuring corporate offices with Jürgen’s located on the top floor where guests can view the breathtaking San Jose skyline as they dine.

The restaurant will close temporarily on December 18 and will reopen in 2024 to debut its reimagined look and feel.

Reinventing an Icon

Fine dining in Costa Rica has a name: Jürgen’s. Our guests have enjoyed delicious food paired with some of the best-imported wines in the country, with exceptional service also a staple of the restaurant for over 20 years. 

We’re now ready to embark on an impressive renovation project that will reimagine the environment and provide a stand-out experience.

The space will receive a ground-up renovation over 2023, developing an office tower block where a modern workforce will work and thrive.

The Jürgen’s restaurant will move to the top floor of the new building and its original one-room layout will expand into three beautifully designed areas:

  • A 74-seat five-star restaurant
  • An elegant bar
  • A stunning rooftop terrace

The well-known restaurant will keep its name and remain a symbol of culinary excellence, distinguished service, and attention to detail. Everty is thrilled to debut Jürgen’s reinvented and dynamic new look and welcome guests to an elevated culinary experience in the heart of Barrio Dent, San Jose.

We are not saying goodbye, just farewell for now whilst we deliver our ground-up renovation plan.

We have invested around $25 million in this ground-up renovation project that will reimagine the space, developing an office tower block where a modern workforce will work and thrive. The beloved Jürgen’s restaurant will move to the top floor of the new building, remaining a symbol of culinary excellence and a pillar of the San José community.

Our plan is to reopen and welcome guests to the reinvented restaurant at the start of 2024. We thank all customers who have shown their loyalty over the years and we’re confident that they will enjoy the new and reimagined Jürgen’s commented Jose A. Cangiano, General Director of Hospitality at Everty.

We Care: Celebrating Jürgen’s New Chapter

We were delighted to welcome our most loyal, regular customers, local media, and key figures in the community to a special event that took place on November 15. We unveiled our renovation plans and gave guests ample notice of the temporary closure of the restaurant.

We thank our guests for joining us to share a unique evening of tasty food, drinks, and our vision for the future.

It’s truly an exciting time of transformation for Everty in San Jose. We look forward to bringing value to the local culinary scene by welcoming guests to the new and reinvented Jürgen’s restaurant we all love in 2024.
