Description: At Esperanto, we specialize in innovative, Salvadoran haute cuisine that highlights local and seasonal products in a fine dining atmosphere. Our space also serves as a rotating art gallery, featuring new collections from El Salvador's vibrant art scene. Hidden behind the guise of "El Salvador only has the rainy & dry seasons" is a vibrant cycle of micro-seasons that delivers brilliant native ingredients year round. The availability of these fruit, vegetables, mushrooms and flowers ranges widely from a few weeks to a just few hours. At Esperanto, we work closely with a wide variety of local farmers and foragers to bring these special, limited availability, products to your table. Our chef works closely with clients to design unique, gourmet menus for special events, private catering, weddings and business events.

“Best ribeye in El Salvador”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

With out a doubt, Esperanto has the best ribeye in El Salvador. Adicionally, The Bull Tail is spectacular. Numerous other plates are creative, original and great. I highly recomend this restaurant.

Short but excellent menu list.
Ask for the "out of menu" options

“World class food with an especially local twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

I visit San Salvador from the U.S. and since I tried Esperanto on a recent visit it has become a highlight of my returns to the city. The chef here is taking local ingredients and having fun with them and creating a fine dining experience to rival those of the best in the U.S. or Europe. Though it is fine dining it does not seem to lose the local flavor or authenticity, it just takes things to a new level. On recent visits we enjoyed the riguas with seafood in them, the mushroom dishes (locally harvested varieties) and even desserts were very delicious. The staff is excellent and knowledgable of the menu. Wine selection is good to great for San Salvador. Overall this is a must try for anyone with a sophisticated palate, this is a one of a kind foodie gem.
