My wife took me to the restaurant for Father's Day and as I used to live close to the restaurant and knew about its good reputation, I was excited about going. When she made the reservation weeks in advance, they assured her that they would be able to accommodate my allergy to gluten. When we arrived, the staff knew nothing... More

Fresh ingredients , best quality cuts, and even their own brand of cold meats, St Pierre. Elegant setting, great service, and also offers the beautiful rooms and Bougie... More

My family and I have been customers of El Chandelier for years... It is by far the best restaurant in Costa Rica. They start you off with a little something from the kitchen which is usually a pâté or prosciutto with melon and an apple slaw. That apple slaw is to die for! The Camembert is a delicious starter. And... More
