We enjoyed a memorable dinner prepared by Monique and Andre. The food courses were wonderfully prepared with fresh ingredients and in different combinations. Some favorites were bruschetta of fig, pear and peanuts, the veloute, and the veal with fresh morels. The food was accompanied by well... read more

The grand finale was the most delicious bouche de noel- filled with... More

The experience is as they say in Costa Rica, "Pura Vida." I was very surprised the setting is in a beautiful home. We were greeted at the front double green doors and escorted to a back patio for champagne and conversation with Monique and Andrea. The lovely hosts, homeowners and our chefs. The food was exceptional, each accompanied by wine.... More

Monique and Andre literally run a restaurant from their own table, doing at most one seating per night, though most nights they apparently don't have guests. When dining with Monique and Andre, you'll be welcomed with a glass of champagne by the pool of their home, where your hosts will introduce themselves and describe the evening ahead. You'll then move... More

Loved, loved, loved this dining experience. Monique and Andre were just delightful and the food was exquisitely prepared and presented. We dined in such a lovely atmosphere. It could not have been better. A word of caution.... the wine is free flowing, so pace yourself or you'll overindulge before you get to the last course :)

We were greeted with a glass of fine champagne and taken to a table on the patio by the pool. We were served several exquisite appetizers each one better than the last while soft music was playing in the background. We were then invited into the home to the main dining room where the table was set with fine linens... More

7 course formal dining. Excellent wines paired with menu created each evening in an elegant mansion. Our party of eight enjoyed our dinner party hosted by Monique and Andre. Well worth the per person price of $100. Caviar with white chocolate? Pheasant? crispy duck breast w pineapple? Lavender Salmon? Go here. Wow.

Last Sunday night we had a private party with both old and new friends at La Mesa de Monique and Andre in Liberia. The old friend introduced us to Andre and Monique about 5 years ago. It was our new friend’s first trip. As we arrived by the pool, we were met with warm cashews and a white merlot, very... More

This is an experience that is a MUST if your are in the Liberia Costa Rica area! Monique and Andre take the attention to detail and the service to another level that you will not get anywhere else. We have visited the restaurant many times since our first invitation and every time has been an experience all in itself. They... More
