My family and I had two wonderful experiences at Cafe Conchal while we were in Guanacaste. The food and service were the best we experienced during our 6 month stay in Costa Rica, and we highly recommend this restaurant. The venue is warm, comfortable and inviting and has an understated elegance. On one occasion, we sat outside and really enjoyed watching the world go by while we relaxed in easy comfort with ceiling fans whirling above us and a parade of excellent food making its way to our table. The other time, we enjoyed the dining room inside, and I loved the sensation of being so near the kitchen where all that lovely food was being beautifully prepared.
If you want something light, delicious, and completely satisfying, I recommend the the seafood soup which is full of expertly prepared fish and sea food in a flavorful light broth. Every bite was perfect, every piece of fish cooked to perfection. My husband had a heartier meal, the Chipotle Turkey Club which was a wonderful blend of flavor, texture and substance. In Costa Rica, we often found that portions weren’t big enough for our massive American appetites, but all of us were completely satisfied at Cafe Conchal. Our little one had the mushroom ravioli in a sauce that can only be described as sublime.
Absolutely not to be missed are the smoothies, my two favorites of which were the mango and the watermelon. I have tried to duplicate those flavors here at home -- the memory will stay with me. I loved the surprise of the ginger flavor and the sweetness of the orange juice blended with the mango. Cafe Conchal is a great restaurant, our favorite by far in all of Costa Rica.
