Something here for everyone. They have sushi, pastas, seafood, steak, salads and more. Service is excellent and views are amazing. The food and selections are all delicious so the only problem is it is hard to choose what to eat.

We stopped here on our way to Playa Grande for smoothies and we loved it! The grassy area where you sit overlooking the beach is a perfect place to relax on a sunny day. The smoothies were yummy and the waiter is super friendly! I have been twice and they are always so nice!

We ate here twice while in the Montezuma area. Food, presentation, atmosphere, absolutely gorgeous! Everything was so fresh! We did not stay at Ylang Ylang, so it was very difficult getting to and from to eat, especially in the dark, as it is quite a hike, and in the rain, as no taxi's go back to it. You either walk...

Amazing food. We are not vegetarians/vegans so ordered a lot of fish and chicken which were great, but it's worth trying dishes like seared tofu which are incredible even if you're not vegan. Everything is incredible fresh and well made.

I really enjoyed Ylang Ylang Restaurant. I was there with my 6 year old daughter. We are both vegans and I was happy to see the delicious vegan options. We had breakfast and dinner there for a week, and the food was really scrumptious. I also enjoyed the atmosphere and being by the ocean. The staff is very friendly and... More

The food at the Ylang Ylang was beyond our expectations. While we ate mostly the fish and chicken dishes, there were a diverse selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes, along with many sushi selections. The flavors, presentation and selections were the best we experienced during our trip to CR in July, and the service was impeccable. Highly recommended by our... More

We stayed at the Beach Resort and therefore either dinner or lunch is included in the rate (as well as their sumptuous breakfast...). The deal: you choose whatever you like from their menu. It's that simple. AND, no matter what you choose: it's extremely delicious. Their chicken dishes (there's no beef on the menu), the various seafood dishes, the tagliatelle.... More

The menu has many interesting choices and we were pleased with everything we tried. Wonderful service, the food was pleasantly presented, and the view was fabulous. I only wish we could have stayed longer so I could have tried all the items on the menu.

My girl and I stayed at Ylang Ylang (which was overall Amazing) and we assumed since breakfast and dinner were included with our room, the food would be just "ok". Well we were very pleasantly surprised as the food was very good. There are not a lot of places in Costa Rica that offer food this great, especially in the... More
