Most food is grown right on the property, from the green house and hens to the fruit trees grown to buffer the coffee plant growth. The bar is well stocked, the seafood selections were wonderful. The chef even prepared a slight variation on a dish for me, to my delight. The staff was 100% dedicated. An overall outstanding experience. Food,... More

Local, organic food prepared with love! They are happy to make accommodations for dietary concerns& offer little extras - a special taste of something from the chef, a pour of dessert wine, etc. The staff speaks english but is happy to help you practice spanish. Great experience!

Besides the food, the view was great! Breakfast each morning was really tasty. The fresh fruit was just that....fresh! They also have a greenhouse where they grow their own greens, onions and herbs. The lettuce was so sweet!

You'll need a gps or a driver to get to this restaurant...and it's so worth it. The quality of food from appetizer to mains to dessert is almost matched by the amazing service and scenic view of the valley. Just a perfect experience and can't wait to go back.

Amazing views, excellent food, warm and detailed service; El Tigre Vestido is one of the best meals I have had during our two years of living in Costa Rica. Set among the coffee fields near Santa Barbara the atmosphere is pleasant, with a stunning view of the Central Valley. Chef Oscar Picado is among the best in Costa Rica creating... More

Warm place with great city view, nestled in a coffee farm, including nice boutique hotel, and a very nice deck where is the restaurant are.

One of the nicest places in Costa Rica metropolitan area, just 30 away from Heredia downtown, the restaurant located at a self sustainable farm, taking the concept of farm to table to another level, the place has a great terrace with view to mountains and gardens, the food is a Costa Rica Fusion, very fresh, really do recommend this place

The food is ok, a little expensive. The best part is the place and the view and the peace and silence in the hotel. Service was slow and bad, if you are going plan a lot of time for lunch.
