We reserved a wedding "Welcome to Costa Rica" feast Al Chile Viola for 45 people last week and it could not have been any better. Emiliano & Luz took wonderful care of all of our guests, starting with a drink cocktail when we arrived and ending with a fabulous banana brownie dessert. They served homemade pasta with shrimp pesto, an... More

I ate here recently with my wife and four of our children. There is a fantastic booth like table on the porch that made the meal convivial. The wine selection, while not extensive, is more than adequate. my wife and I shared a nice Malbec. We ordered beef carpaccio, the portobello mushrooms and calamari for our appetizers. The carpaccio was... More

This small but cozy outdoor restaurant has been in Santa Teresa for quite a while. The outdoor eating area is rustic, yet warm and accommodating. The restaurant is owned by a couple who integrated local and Argentine cuisine, and with it, created a fusion that is tropical with hints of Italian, Argentine old school cuisine. I have to say that... More

We went here for dinner and it was fabulous! I enjoyed the grilled tuna and my husband the grilled octopus. Both were generous portions and we enjoyed the leftovers over fresh salad the following day. We highly recommend this restaurant.

My family has long been in the food business, so I've been blessed with a refined palette. Al Chile Viola treated that palette with respect, son. I started with the passion fruit avocado cocktail. Refreshing. For an app, we had the calamari. They were as large as American onion rings. The main course brought a finely prepared tuna steak. A... More

Our dining experience started off with some great music, tasty tuna tartare, and inventive specialty drinks. My husband and I were already impressed, and then came the entrees. They were amazing, beautifully presented and some of the best food I have ever had. The grilled octopus with roasted pumpkin was my favorite but we also loved the sea bass and... More

After eating in several restaurants in Santa Teresa (there are so many good places ) I can tell you that visiting "al Chile Viola" is for sure a must, if you come in a group/ family I’d recommend making a reservation in advance , the setting of the restaurant if fairly simple, we had a table near the kitchen where...

Coming from "downtown" Santa Teresa you'd have to go on for some three to four kilometers, then it is on your right hand side, soon after the La Hacienda supermarket. Although right at the street, you are not bothered by dust or noise. The place is really charming, the atmosphere quite perfect. They have a few specials every day. Everything... More
