This was one of our best meals in Costa Rica! Had the chicken curry and ceviche. Staff was very friendly and spoke very clear English!

We stayed at the Royal Corin resort, so we ate here every night. The menu selection is vast and offers a variety of entree options. My husband and I never had difficulty choosing our meal. The Churrasco steak is incredibly tasty. The Curry chicken was...one of my favourites (especially since they were able to make it dairy free due to my allergy) The Bernabella salad was wonderfully light and filling at the same time. Prices are average also. and the terrace is a nice place to eat while looking our at the lush palm trees, and listening to the waterfall from the pool.More

The food is delicious, the staff is amazing, there is no need to go anywhere else if you're staying at the hotel. Highly recommend it!!

We stayed at the hotel and felt absolutely spoiled with this restaurant on premise. The breakfast was super fresh and there was plenty to choose from. Dinner on the patio is gorgeous, we returned there nightly. Not the biggest menu but certainly something for everyone....The staff was always friendly and are english speaking.More

Not a large menu but enough choice to find something for everyone. The wait staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. And speak English. The food is well-prepared and very flavorful and with unique flavor combinations. We got a complimentary shot-glass of ceviche to start and...then after our appetizers, a ceramic spoonful of mango sorbet to cleanse the palate. My recommendations: tuna ceviche or brandy mushrooms or mozzarella for appetizer. For entree: seafood risotto. My daughter really enjoyed the pasta carbonara and my other daughter liked the trout. I didn’t find the desserts very inspired but I saw the coffee flan and it looked good but I don’t really like Flan. But I suspect that is their specialty if you like that.More

We stayed at the hotel for 4 days. We had breakfast here every morning and it was really good. Lots of fruit and natural juice options. During the week the breakfast was a la charge. On Saturday, it was buffet. Both equally delicious with lots...of options. The hotel itself was amazing and the staff in the restaurant and bar are fantastic. Pablo and Jose at the bars were awesome!More

This restaurant is located at Royal Corin thermal resort. We were staying at the resort (and loved it). Decided to dine here one night. Service was good. I’m especially impressed that first thing they did was asked about our allergies and took it very seriously....Food however was not so impressive. Kids loved the lava cake dessert though.More

We loved the breakfast at Emperador every morning. Lots of options and a terrific omelet bar. Dinner was so-so with the food being just okay. However, the service was a big plus both morning and night.

Limited menu but food was delicious. Good wine selection. By reservation only but we would let them know what time we wanted to eat in the afternoon. Wasn't very busy.
