“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

We ate here twice while in the Montezuma area. Food, presentation, atmosphere, absolutely gorgeous! Everything was so fresh! We did not stay at Ylang Ylang, so it was very difficult getting to and from to eat, especially in the dark, as it is quite a hike, and in the rain, as no taxi's go back to it. You either walk the road or the beach. It did not deter us from going twice though. If we ever go back, would consider staying on the property. It is gorgeous, but we wanted the feel of real Costa Rican living, and not a resort. So if you stay elsewhere, always carry an umbrella and a flashllight.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

Amazing food. We are not vegetarians/vegans so ordered a lot of fish and chicken which were great, but it's worth trying dishes like seared tofu which are incredible even if you're not vegan. Everything is incredible fresh and well made.

“Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

I really enjoyed Ylang Ylang Restaurant. I was there with my 6 year old daughter. We are both vegans and I was happy to see the delicious vegan options. We had breakfast and dinner there for a week, and the food was really scrumptious. I also enjoyed the atmosphere and being by the ocean. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend it whether you are with a partner, your family or solo.

“Fabulous food, with many great choices!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

The food at the Ylang Ylang was beyond our expectations. While we ate mostly the fish and chicken dishes, there were a diverse selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes, along with many sushi selections. The flavors, presentation and selections were the best we experienced during our trip to CR in July, and the service was impeccable. Highly recommended by our entire family!
