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? This is a very rare and unique find in Guanacaste, Cost Rica. Monique and Andre do all the preparation, cooking and presentation. (Review by member Chane des Rotisseurs,... 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

The food was wonderful, unique, creative and delicious. Paired with a series of wines, and served in a beautiful home and garden hidden behind 12 foot tall carved wooden doors, the evening turned into magic. What was even more outstanding was to find this experience in Liberia, hardly the centre of elegance and cuisine, hosted by a talented couple from... More

My friends treated me to a special experience at Monique Y Andre for my birthday. I have been there on 5 or 6 times and each time it is a new experience. I don't believe I've every had the same dishes. Their 7 course gourmet extravaganza is a delight to the palate. The wines compliment every dish and there is... More

Whenever we come to Costa Rica we always make a point to dine in their comfortable home and enjoy the whole experience of a night with Andre and Monique. Each time is different as they keep the menu from our previous visits and never replicate. We never know what to expect in the way of courses and wines but we... More
