Loved both our meals, prepared with love and care. The fish had amazing and interesting spices, filet Mignone perfectly cooked, Greek Salad light and full of flavor...the view is incomparable, the service was the best in Costa Rica! Thank you again, Carlos and Jose, Russell and Scott.

I went with 5 people and we waited at the bar while we had a drink. My favorite was the Tuna Tostada Appetizer. I also had the seafood pasta and it was excellent as well.

We went to Azul for the 1st time and had a great dinning experience. The food was delicious and Scott and Russel are great host. The pita bread to start was prepared perfectly and the salad and main course was equally well prepared. We will definitely be back soon.

So sit down, order a beverage from the very friendly staff and start with many of the great appetizers this restaurant has on its lunch menu. For us, it has always been the humus and pita. However, during our recent visit, the... More
