Milarepa is great food,chic, relaxed setting,and just perfect.I had grilled seabass with coconut curry.Yum!My husband had seared tuna-said it was great.It was one of the best meals,and just the right ambience.I think anything you order here would be pefect, and will definitly go back again.Also,come here a little before they open at 6:00pm, and watch the sunset on the beach.Perfecto!!!!!

Enjoyable, relaxed, friendly but not over-intrusive, quiet, clean and delicious. Certainly the best coffee we've ever had in anywhere out of US and Europe. Better than any we've had in Mexico, Cuba, PR, St. Vincent, etc. Not cheap but nothing is in these parts for Gringos. All the food is very fresh & imaginative w/out being overworked. Could have done... More

During our recent stay in Santa Teresa we spent most nights eating at Milarepa. The food was head and shoulders above anything else in the area, and the atmosphere was a simple chic outdoor space.

This was a fabulous place to start off the day - something for everyone - we have four kids! Fresh and beautiful presentation. The view, of course, is unmatched!

I loved waking up and going to breakfast here. We stayed at Red Palm Villas and only had to walk down the beach for a few minutes to arrive at this gem. The food was always delicious, served by the nicest staff. Additionally we had our wedding reception dinner here and the food was amazing. Thank you!

We were staying next door and ate here everyday for breakfast. It was a good breakfast menu. Light fare - fruit bowl, granola, eggs, etc. Always fresh. French press coffee was quite good also.

Milarepa restaurant is a must for anyone visiting Santa Teresa. The beautiful and tranquil atmosphere is set on the beach under the jungle canopy lit by candlelight. The chef, Sebastian, is renowned in the area for his culinary delights. We first discovered him 4 years ago and have followed him to this unique and romantic setting. You can expect the... More

If you are in Santa Teresa and want to experience a special, magical dinner, then go to Milarepa. You will step in a very magical atmosphere, right at the edge of the beach, some tables are perfectly located under amazing trees and you can gaze at the stars and hear the waves while eating deliciously clean food! The fish entrees... More
