My boyfriend and I stayed at Five Senses for 2 nights. The cabins were nestled in the gardens and had a lovely rustic ambience. The open windows allowed us to fall asleep with fresh air at night and the sounds of crickets, plus you could see numerous fireflies lighting up the garden. The garden and restaurant were beautifully decorated and... More

My family went there for our mother's birthday and it was incredible. The atmosphere was so cool, the staff was great and the food was off the charts. I would recommend this place to anyone who will be near Uvita and wants a phenomenal meal!

My family celebrated my birthday at Five Senses. It was truly memorable and by far the best meal we had in Costa Rica. Don't miss this special place.

Had such a nice experience at Five Senses. The setting is beautiful and the food was delicious (I'm still dreaming about the Tico salad...). The owner was especially lovely and gracious and it was easy to see that she pours her heart and soul into Five Senses. One of the highlights of our trip!

First off the decor is creatively designed by local artists that have inspiration rooted from nature. There is also a wonderful garden and cool recycled bottles used for decoration. Very enjoyable service from people who appreciate their patrons. We were given wonderful hospitality by Susana who was simply charming and delightful. If you are on a tight budget and are... More

We ate at Five Senses last night, and what a treat it was. The setting was beautiful- open to the garden, but no bugs to detract from the comfort. Susanna, the owner, hostess, waitress was really welcoming and friendly. The good was very well prepared and tasty; and the bill was very reasonable. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes... More

The setting and decor are beautiful, set in a peaceful garden with a bonfire, open to the west (although we missed the sunset, it is a perfect place to watch it, I'm sure!) The food was delicious and creative (cardamon in my stir-fry!), and we enjoyed the chef's gracious treat of appetizer and dessert.
