My husband and I arrived in Atenas and went walking to find a place for dinner. The owner caught our eye with his parrot as we walked by the entrance. We went in and had a wonderful dinner. My husband had the fish curry which was sooo good. Just the right amount of curry and the sauce was delish. I... More

Cafe Cultura recently reopened under new management and what a difference it makes! The new menu is extensive and varied with items unheard of in Costa Rica like Avocado Ritz and REAL barbeque ribs, falling off the bone tender. The dining area is in a very pleasant backyard, with a covered patio and umbrella tables. Service is attentive and excellent.... More

If you enjoy dining in the trees, this is the place. After renovating the rear dining area to accomodate more people, this restaurant has "evolved." Being a permanent resident of Atenas, I am always looking for a not so "repeat menu from 5 weeks ago" offerings for a lunch or dinner, This is the place. Good presentation, good service, and... More

Those of us who are permanent residents in Atenas really, really hope that the new folks in charge of Cafe Cultura -- Jed and Esther -- stay! The restaurant re-opened under their management is at least 1 million percent better than the last owners/managers. The menu is new, fresh, innovative and crafted with a flair by "chef" Jed ... who... More

Went in for my second time and had a very nice lunch. The owner has found someone to purchase fresh local meat and the chef is showing his talents. Look forward to the next visit.

This is a combination between tea/cafe shop and restaurant. Owners Jed and Esther are very sweet and attentive. Until they get their wine license, you can bring in own wine. That is a very smart decision. They take credit cards - for a new business, that is great. Food starts with fresh ingredients. Great selection of loose leaf teas.

I love their atmosphere, with the tables out in the back green space. It feels very peaceful. The eggs benedict is awesome! I also love the chicken crepe for lunch! It's the best choice in Atenas!
