The recent chef, Gustavo, is starting to revamp the restaurant and does an amazing, fun, and delicious tasting menu. We did by pre-arrangement a tasting sitting at the open kitchen with Gus. His wine collection /recommendations were spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinners with Gustavo and also the service /menus at the restaurant for breakfasts were excellent. We stayed... More

The geographical location is very nice, the place is isolated enough but close from 2 Towns, the food is really good but a little bit pricy , well maybe because the place is more focused on foreign tourists but maybe they can have an "special national fee". Overall it was really nice.

Dear David. Thank you for writing in and taking the time to share your thoughts.I am not sure what you mean by "special national fee" - we do not focus on foreign tourists- we are Costa Ricans and we focus on clients who would like healthy, fresh, high quality food from our organic gardens and sustainable purveyors. We try to... More

The restaurant is part of the Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation/Guest House. It's lovely and the staff is friendly but it is not as top notch as the guesthouse/plantation operation deserves. Some of the menu items were unavailable, frozen, or poorly cooked, and the staff was less than expert at service. The service at the bar was notably slow. If... More

The views are spectacular at any time of day- truly breathtaking. Coffee is awesome and organic, grown right on the plantation at Finca Rosa Blanca. Food is made with special care and is absolutely delicious. The staff are friendly. Overall, a wonderful dining experience for all three meals. The scenery alone is breathtaking, add in the amazing food, and this... More

We just had a customised tasting menu at the chef’s table, it was amazing food and a superb experience we highly recommend (and they were very patient despite our arrival being very delayed!). Our best meal in two weeks of costa rica.

Two out of three orders were wrong, to correct the error one beer was "on the house" but it appeared on the bill. Parking across the street and gate was locked when we returned for the car, had to wait to be opened, got in the car and gate closed again when we were close to it. Not impressed. The... More
