The complete experience from walking in to their yard, to saying our warm regards on the way out, was remarkable. It was fun on our first visit to Costa Rica, to enjoy the local fare in various towns, but we had the good fortune to have local friends who recommended a visit here for a special event. It was a...

We were fortunate enough to be invited to dine at Andre and Monique's house. It could not have been a more perfect way to end our trip to Costa Rica. There home is so beautiful and decorated with pieces that each have a special story. We were greeted with a beautiful blue cocktail while we admired their wonderful yard with... More

We received a very warm welcome which included a heavenly drink. It's the best meal I've ever had, absolutely delicious. Ten courses including dessert. It seemed as a personalized preparation. Each plate was better than the last, we couldn't decide which was best. And to finish it, a dessert that explodes in your mouth with flavors you can't even imagine,... More

Our second time with Monique and Andre and it is still the best dining experience in the area. Monique and Andre make you feel right at home. It's as if you are at your Uncle and Aunt's house, who happen to be excellent chefs. The wine pairings that Andre chose were right on the mark. I highly recommend a visit... More

After 4 or five different wines, and a passion fruit cocktail, lost count during this EIGHT course epicurean fantasy. An intimate formal dinner for 6. Our fifth visit Need I say more?

Our family of four had the wonderful opportunity to spend an evening with Monique and Andre. They welcome you to their beautiful home and are very gracious and inviting. Each course was accompanied with a wonderful wine and Andre took the time to share with us the pairing to the food course. Monique and Andre's presentation of each course was... More

It was my third visit at La mesa de Monique y Andre and as ususal it was an unforgetable experience. I had the pleasure to enjoy an entirely new menu and was pleased with all of the courses served on that night. I particularly loved the snails, the veal served with wild mushrooms and the sorbet. As always Andre carefully... More

Our friend made all the arrangements for our dinner here with Monique et Andre so it was a complete surprise to have this unforgetable dinner in what would otherwise have been an forgetable night in Liberia, Costa Rica. Monique and Andre welcome you into their home and serve a seven or eight course meal that is excellent by any standard.... More
