“Absolutely fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Beautiful food in a "pinch yourself" beautiful setting. The staff (owners?) are warm, pleasant, gracious... pretty much everything you could want. The chalkboard menu is small (about 5 apps and 5 entrees) and we tried most of them since we were a group of 7. Fantastic food. Try the queso haoulmi, beef chimmichuri, camarones azul, or gnocchi con hogos. They even offered to make pasta marinara for the kids. The fresh bread with perfectly herbed butter was a nice and unexpected touch. This is a perfect stop if you want to have a nice dinner and kill some time before seeing the turtles on Ostional. It is a bit expensive (apps ranged from about $8 to $16, entrees from about $12 to $22), but they do take credit cards. If I lived in Costa Rica, this would be my regular haunt, for sure!

“Best Restaurant in the Region”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

Wherever you're coming from, the drive is going to be amazing. Make a reservation first before you go. This is the best restaurant in the region if you're looking for a step up from pizza or burgers. The ingredients are fresh, the meals well put together. It's a bit pricier then the rest of the places $14/ plate, but your getting something different with a great view and good wine. If you're looking for a good white wine : Torrontes is the way to go. The menu changes depending on the local products available.

“Gourmet food best in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012

Highly recommended! Gourmet food for dinner with good selection of meat/poultry/seafood. Everything was made from scratch and salads are very good also. The juices were freshly made and was very good. We went to a different restaurant one night since Luna Azul was closed and did not like the food at all. Be sure to stop by when you are in the area!

“Fabulous food”

We loved the freshly caught local red snapper with herbs and the fillet mignon chimmichurri and the scrambled eggs at breakfast!
