great food with a great view

With a view of the waves and the friendliest servers on the planet, each meal at the Ylang Ylang restaurant was a joy. Breakfast was my personal favorite with crepes made with fresh fruit. Watch out for the blue jays, they swoop down on your table trying to steal your sugar packets.

Adequate portions, prompt service, delicious fruit drinks, and reasonable prices. Also, the cooks and servers are friendlier than most. Christian took pictures for our group so that we could all be included in the pictures.

Simply wonderful cuisine. No matter what your food preference is, they have something for everyone. NATURAL, ORGANIC, LIVE RAW, CHICKEN, FISH SUSHI ETC! I had 16 different meals during my stay and all of them were fantastic!

A beautiful resort nestled in the jungle on the beach. Service was excellent and the room we nice and clean. The food was amazing. It's a bit out of the way but that is what my wife and I were looking for. Not ideal for families.

I've already reviewed this for the hotel, but we loved this restaurant. The staff was super and very accommodating.

We ate and are now making at home the Costa Rican black beans and rice dish with Lizano salsa. The view from the restaurant... More

Amazing food. We had a vegetarian with us and she never had a problem finding something to eat. Favorite meals we: Blackened tuna steak with mango sauce. Breakfast meal: Ylang Ylang Omelette (though the huevos rancheros was a close second).

We stayed at Ylang Ylang Beach Resort from May 17-23. We could not believe how good the food was. The menu had many options so we didn't have to eat the same thing twice if we didn't want to. The staff was great and always friendly and attentive. While the cocktails were on the expensive side, they were definitely worth... More

We really enjoyed our time at Ylang Ylang. The food at the restaurant was really good and the service was fantastic. I would reccomend trying this place out next time you are in the Montezuma, Costa Rica.
