Great view, very nice interior, great food. Very accomodating to our rather exacting diet (high fat, very low carb). Wonderful!

We came to Colbert by chance and it turns out the owners used to own a terrific restaurant in San Jose many, many years ago. They still have a wonderful cuisine. We didn't have a single issue with the time because we just wanted to relax and enjoy. Prices: just about right with all higher end restaurants in Costa Rica... More

This sunday my husband and I where headed to a typical food restaurant when we passed by Colbert and remembered that years ago we visited and was very good. They continue with the good quality and excellent service. I had scallops and my husband has a tenderloin. They were great!!!!

We're a French family and decided to have lunch at Colberts on our way back to Alajuela after two fantastic weeks in Costa Rica. We'd read a great review in the French version of Lonely Planet and were looking forward to our last great meal before the trip back home. It was a promising start - roaring fire in the... More

We went to Colbert's for dinner one night while staying at the Peace Lodge (under 10 mins away). The food was great and the atmosphere was quite nice as well. We received personalized service from the chef himself and the pastries that were made in house were quite good. Given the limited options in this area of Costa Rica I... More

We did some travelling around the Peace Lodge looking for a nice restaurant to accommodate our adult family of 6. The smells and aroma coming from the prep kitchen was all we needed to secure a reservation for the evening. Turned out to be a very cold, rainy night. Upon seating we asked the Chef if the heat could possibly... More

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
