Perfect way to end the trip!

The location is gorgeous, staff was attentive, food was great, and monkeys howling is just an extra perk!

My wife and I spent 15 nights at the wonderful Hyatt Andaz Papagayo, and had 9 dinners at this great restaurant with a beautiful ambiance, excellent food and great service by a very friendly staff. You are offered a complimentary glass of refreshing Sangria as you check in, with different flavors every night. If you like ceviche, you will love... More

We just loved our visit to Ostra while on our honeymoon. The ceviche was out of this world and all of our entrees were cooked to perfection. Service was outstanding without feeling stuffy. Highly recommend!

The service and restaurant itself were really great. The food was just ok and the portions are small for what you paid. The ceviche was great as you can design your own. Other than that, have had better meals at that price point.

My husband and I dined here on the last night of our stay. The service was excellent, but the food overall was just average. My main course was prawns 2 ways. One of the ways resulted in a shrimp that was was flaccid,flavorless and tough. They were served with a large mound of fairly tasteless rice. My husbands steak was... More

We had dinner at Ostra on Valentines Day so enjoyed a prix fix menu and live music from a local guitarist. The restaurant is beautifully designed with flowing white drapes adding privacy, tables outside set in rock formations. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. Recommended for a romantic evening

4 Adults and 2 Kids. Food was good. Nice concept with ceviche bar. Had lobster linguine. Would have liked a little more linguine. Good amount of lobster! They try hard - but service is off. They could use better management - have the manager from the Tapas restaurant also at the Andaz whip the staff into shape!

The service here was excellent, even though we were initially seated outside given where we were seated and the weather - it was insect central. We asked to be moved inside and they were happy to comply. The sea bass and vegan ceviche were spectacular - they are what the restaurant is known for and even the vegan ceviche was... More

What a fantastic menu for a restaurant at a hotel. Broad variety, very inventive menu, tastes combined beautifully. We had two different ceviches which were each amazing. My husband thought the beef with pasta was the best dish he had ever eaten. Service was flawless, setting incredibly romantic. Not cheap but well worth it.
