I went to an event last evening at Azul and the new chef pulled out all the stops for the dinner. From the appetizers to the dessert (5 courses in all), everything was so delicious. So much flavour.

We visit Azul at El Castillo on every trip to Costa Rica. Every dish is incredibly tasty all made with the freshest ingredients. Sushi night is awesome too. And the views are an added bonus. We highly recommend Azul!

We stopped by Azul for lunch after reading the reviews on TA. We were shown to a nice table by the infinity pool that opened up into an amazing view of the ocean and surrounding area. The server was very helpful and attentive. However, it seemed the entire interior and bar area was under construction. At times, it was almost... More

We had dinner at this Restaurant during the first week of November. My Wife and I were amazed by the view from patio. I recommend you get there early so you can take advantage of the ocean and river scenery. The food was fantastic and our server Dariel was very courteous. Azul is a fabulous location and is a great... More

Scott is the perfect host and Azul has the best sunset I've ever experienced! Drinks and tapas or sushi as the sun sets over the Pacific Ocean is as good as it gets, and Azul does it better than anybody! Fresh fish, cold mojitos, and homemade desserts in the open air...yes, yes, yes!

A beautiful place, especially for watching sunsets. Food is ok nothing really special and its on the expensive side, but it has one of the best views in all of the southern Pacific side of Costa Rica.

WOW! We came here on a recommendation and the food was amazing! I ordered the Moroccan Chicken and had to restrain myself from licking the plate at the end. LOL! Looking at the presentation, you could tell the chef is passionate about his creations. The chef even came out to personally ask how we liked our meal. For dessert we... More

I have come here many times and have never been disappointed. The views are spectacular and can't be beat! Food is delicious, drinks are cold and service is excellent. El Castillo and Azul has recently been remodelled and is absolutely stunning! Highly recommended!
