We were traveling to our lodge near Poas and were very hungry in the middle of the day. We just happened upon Restaurante Colbert out of sheer luck. We enjoyed a very leisurely 2 hour meal and introduced our kids to wonderful French cuisine while listening to classical music, drinking nice wine and watching the hummingbirds put on a ballet...

It has been several years since I have visited this restaurant. The food was quite good, the atmosphere pleasant and bright. The restaurant was very clean.. However delicious, the portions were on the small size, typical of French cuisine. Good selection of wines. The staff, whether owners or attendants, were, in typical French behavior, rather supercilious. Being French myself, I... More

Several people recommended that we eat at Restaurant Colbert. We were a bit skeptical but decided to visit it as we were not that far away. What a great find, and in such an unlikely spot? The restaurant ambiance was perfect. It had a beautiful setting (except that it was dark so we didn't get to appreciate the view, and... More

We stopped in on a foggy day and were the only people for lunch. The onion soup was good, given the weather. And the bread was awesome. Still, for the price, I wasn't especially impressed, but that pretty much sums up my food experiences in all Costa Rica. I liked it, but I needed to be blown away to be... More

Restaurant is located on the main road that leads to Varablanca. Menuis very extensive and restraurant is always empty, so I wouldn't be surprised if everything is available or fresh. Owner is a bit rude and not too friendly, not feeling comfortable coming back again.

This restaurant is a taste of France in the mountains of Costa Rica. A gorgeous drive, go slow, take in the view, and further in you get to the the waterfall on the side of the road... anyway, fresh baked bread, a classy environment, you feel the warmth of the ambiance mixed with the passion of the owner. Very good... More

nice location, but we were expecting a place to get a sandwich on a baguette but instead were in for expensive full meal.

This restaurant is on the way to Volcano Poas from Heredia. From the outside it looks unimpressive but don't let that deter you. Inside the greeting is warm, service friendly and efficient and the dishes are scrumptious. Priced a little high, but based on the flavor they impart, worth it. Nice spot to stop and relax on the way up... More

We actually never got to make it inside the restaurant. We drove up to the restaurant in the afternoon to go in and make reservations for dinner and parked at the bottom of the cement stairs out front. As she got out of the car my sister litterally got attacked by the huge and very aggressive german sheppard. I truly... More

The restaurant is nice (at least inside), has a nice view from most of the tables, when you go in it looks like its going to be the best experience, unfortunately it is not. Lunch started with a bad experience from the owner (or at least he looks like the owner, with his french accent). With his bad attitude taking... More
