Description: Imagine sitting under beautiful high bamboo ceilings and gazing out over a serene lagoon pool while enjoying delicious, lovingly prepared food …welcome to Pranamar’s restaurant. A dining experience of unforgettable quality, Pranamar's restaurant will most likely linger in your mind long after your vacation ends. Our restaurant, with spectacular views and an exotic, relaxed atmosphere, not only serves delicious food, but also is committed to creating dishes that nourish the body and enliven the senses.Taste some of Costa Rica's local fruits and vegetables, explore creative vegetarian cooking or experience fish and seafood bought from local fishermen of the Peninsula. We offer something for every palate and are more than happy to accommodate special dietary needs or lifestyle choices. Pranamar’s restaurant sources the freshest ingredients for our menu with a strong emphasis on using organic and locally produced products whenever possible. Our food is simple yet enticing. Our belief is that nature knows best. Our Costa Rican chef rejoices in using fruits and vegetables as natural as possible, trying to use the least amount of procedures as possible and taking advantage of their natural qualities. The menu coincides with the North Pacific seasons of Costa Rica in order to maintain the highest standard of food and beverages quality throughout the year. Our style combines Pacific Rim cuisine with Asian and native influences. The casual yet refined dining experience derives from our passion for food, combined with high standards of quality and our friendly service. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served seven days a week and the restaurant is open to the public. Dinner reservations are recommended.

Stopped in for lunch - lovely spot, really peaceful and calm. Food was great. Hamburger was the best we've eaten and the salads are huge and super-tasty!

Lots of healthy food choices. If you like smoothies, there are lots to choose from. If you are adventurous, ask the bartender to make you up a smoothie of their choice.

Loved the smoothies and fresh juices after Nancy's yoga classes. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner here on multiple occasions and always thought everything was delicious and service was very personal and friendly.

We have eaten at Buddha Eyes many times, both when on retreat at Pranamar Villas-when the meals were served buffet, family-style - and also as guests not on retreat, eating from the menu. The chefs and staff never fail to impress - food is fresh, delicious, excellent in every way. The bar and waitstaff are friendly and helpful, service excellent.... More

Disclaimer. I have food allergies (soy and seafood). So it can be difficult to find places to accommodate these things. I had heard mixed reviews, some grim and others blown away, so decided to investigate. The menu was heavy (almost exclusively soy & seafood, and when I explained this, they very kindly offered to create a chicken dish for me.... More

The hotel we stayed at recommended this restaurant and we were excited to try it because it was one of two restaurants within walking distance of our accommodations. We were the only couple in the dining room and they sat another single woman directly beside us. Awkward! I guess it was more convenient for the waitress to seat and serve... More
