We ate one dinner and two breakfasts here during our stay at Poco-a-Poco resort. We found the food to be very good and the service was good also. The menu had a good selection and I think the prices were right in line with other places that we ate at. We were there during a very slow time of year... More

Went here because it was our hotel restaurant and couldn't be bothered walking elsewhere. We were pleasantly surprised. First, our food came out very fast. The portions were large and the colours and crispy, fresh vegetables were notable. My partner ordered the grilled chicken breast with vegetables and got almost two lean chicken breasts. It was all sort of fusion... More

We arrived back to the hotel late after a night hike so we did not want to search around for dinner. We were not disappointed. Our kids enjoyed the atmosphere music and food as much as I did. It is a good place for people who enjoy food and was one of the best meals that we had in Costa... More

We stayed at the hotel and came here to eat twice in the evening - the staff is extremely friendly and very attentive - the food is very good too. Definitely a good spot to come for some food and live music

I would give it 3.5 stars. There is live music, service is great, food is fresh and tasty but not very original. Prices are on the expensive side.

Otocuma is definitely on my list of top restaurants I dined at globally. With live music nightly it is a great spot to unwind after a day of exploring the province of Santa Elena,Costa Rica. Part of Hotel Poco a Poco, this restaurant is open to the public by reservation only. This isn't your typical Costa Rican dining hole though,... More

We were staying at Hotel Poco a Poco and were tired by the time we arrived and didn't want to make any decisions on where to eat. We ate at Otocuma and really enjoyed it. It gives the impression that it is going to be a little overpriced, overdone place, but it was not. They have live music every night... More

While in Monteverde we ate at one other well reviewed restaurant and felt that Poco a Poco was just as good and had a more varied menu. We ate 3 meals there and were consistently satisfied. We usually like to find restaurants in town, but we highly recommend trying the Restaurant at Poco a Poco.

Fantastic menu....filets, etc. Gorgeous location, excellent attentive staff, and live music. Will definitely check out the adjoining hotel on another trip because it looked wonderful.
