Amazing food, great atmosphere and fabulous service!

We heard about Vista Hermosa from our friends so we decided to check it out while in the area. Honestly, that was a great decision; this is why: - Very cozy, literally after few moments you feel at home with your feet up or floating in the pool with tropical welcome drink in your hand; - Nice... read more

What a gem in the middle of nowhere! My wife and I were celebrating our 33rd anniversary in Costa Rica. The resort we were staying at needed some improvement on their food. So we went to our trusty tool, Tripadvisor to find a place to celebrate our anniversary with a nice meal. Vista B&B did not let us down. Judy... More

We stayed at vista Hermosa bed and breakfast for about a week and enjoyed most of our meals at the restaurant. Judy cooks the food from scratch and she made an effort to always replace the dishes we had eaten on the previous day with new ones. The choice of meals is not infinite, but I honestly prefer a selection... More

We were staying nearby, noticed the sign, and decided to give Vista a try. We liked it so much we returned a second night during our week-long visit to the area! Torches lead to cushy couches near the bar, where we first met chef Judy and bartender Ernesto. Their hospitality (personal attention, interesting conversation) and the atmosphere (local-wood furnishings, nature)... More

We stayed at tango mar down the road, which we loved, but we don't love eating at the same place all the time. Thanks to TA we found Vista and Judy. What a great dinner we had! The food was fabulous- super tasty and fresh. We had the ribs, the gnocchi and the incredible fried Oreos (which were to die... More

Vista Hermosa restaurant has a surprisingly varied menu for such an intimate dining setting. Judy is terrific at accommodating individual preferences, including a (surprise!) vegan. Have a mojito - Ernesto makes them with great care!

One of the best restaurants in Costa Rica (or anywhere). Visa B&B is a small quaint restaurant located in Tambor. I ordered the BBQ rib's which were slow cooked and literally fell off the bone. This dish didn't need to rely on tons of BBQ sauce to make it make it taste good like other places. Trust me it was... More

Vista Hermosa was a hidden treasure for us. Judy’s food is outstanding - everything was fresh and full of flavor, cooked perfectly, and presented very nicely on the plates. She prepares everything herself in her sleek little domestic kitchen. You can tell she really has a love for great food and for taking care of her guests. Count us among... More

We mistakenly chose to stay at the nearby Tango Mar Hotel, where we spent a few nights of eating at a cafeteria style restaurant that resembles the 80's movie Dirty Dancing. Our scuba instructor at the Dive Academy Ballena Blanca recommended going to Vista Hermosa for dinner as they have been voted the best restaurant around. We walked a mile... More
