“Had a great vegetarian wrap here! Chocolate tour is excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We came here before the Bat Jungle tour for lunch and ended up taking the chocolate tour. My 14 year old and I loved learning about how cacao pods are harvested and cacao bean are turned into chocolate. There was a lot of tasting on this tour which helped us understand the differences in quality of chocolate and also how processing affects the ultimate taste. The chocolate produced by Cafe Cabure is in a whole different universe certainly from Hershey's (shouldn't be called chocolate) and even the finest chocolate produced in Belgium and Switzerland. There is a huge opportunity for someone in Costa Rica to farm and produce high quality chocolate in a bigger scale. it's amazing! Oh and the food at Cafe Cabure is on par with a high end restaurant anywhere in California...it's excellent. We went back twice during our stay in Monteverde.

“Great place to eat in Monteverde”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

My wife and I ate lunch at this restaurant and found the food to be delicious, the price reasonable, the service exceptional, and the atmosphere wonderful. The owner. The menu was cosmopolitan, but did include several Argentine items. We like to try different restaurants when we are in a new location, but found the Spanish restaurant out of Santa Elena closed for vacation. So we returned to Cafe Cabure and enjoyed a great dinner, with all the positive attributes of lunch.
Strongly recommend this place.

“Fresh & flavorable fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

I live here in the Monteverde area. Everything is made fresh and the care that is taken in preperation and presentation is excellent. Their food has an Argentinian influence attributible to the owner Susana who is from Argentina and a delight. Service is excellent and they make their own chocholate which is extraordinary. Great Argentinian wine selection too.
