We had friends visiting from Charleston. Two sisters married 10 years ago in a double ring ceremony. Our recommendation for this celebration was La Mesa de Monique Y Andre. What a great choice. Upon arrival, Andre presented the ladies with beautiful rings made from real flowers. Of course the seven courses were exceptionally prepared, served and perfectly paired with the... More

Once again Monique and Andre exceeded my expectations. My husband, daughter, son-in-law and I had a special request that was the best I have ever eaten anywhere. Along with the intricately decorated shrimps and the delicious rabbit broth with brandy and flan for dessert our entire evening was one to be remembered as a very impressive evening of dining.

It was our fifth visit to Andre & Monique's French Cuisine Restaurant. We were once again overwhelmed with delicious food and wonderful, never missed a beat service, by two very experienced and qualified chefs. They treat each person as a VIP with their magnificent hosting abilities. If you are traveling through Liberia, Costa Rica and want an outstanding experience we... More

Well, they did it again. My sons were visiting from the US and insisted that I make reservations for La Mesa de Monique y Andre. While Andre and Monique prefer seating eight for dinner, the were willing to accept just the four of us. From the moment we arrived, with a welcome drink by the pool, to the closing with... More

For the past several years, Monique and Andre have been opening their home and sharing their considerable culinary talents with those fortunate enough to be their dinner guests. Their hospitality and presentation of multiple courses, professionally paired with the perfect wines, is a special dining experience not to be missed while in Costa Rica. Five Stars!

I have been fortunate enough to have eaten at Andre & Monique's on several occasions, each one surpassing the previous one. No serving is repeated from one of the prior visits so it is a delight each time. How they keep track of this is amazing. I have only been asked what I do not like so it will not... More

We have been to Monique and Andre's house on several occasions, and every time there is a surprise. With meticulous attention to details, the unique dinning experience starts with a personal welcoming at the door that leads to a variety of dishes –that never repeats for you when come back again- and a careful wine selection and marriage. I could... More

This is a place only for those people who are truly "in The Know" about fine dining. You ring a door bell outside on this discreet street and then the 15 foot door quietly opens into a beautiful garden where you are greeted by two of the most lovely and talented chefs you will ever meet. A seven course meal... More

Shame on you trip advisor... Now you are paid off to get ratings. This restaurant has once again come over the top in quality, environment, and attention to detail. 74 excellent ratings and one rating that doesn't fit into the equation... It is quite obvious that this is the #1 restaurant experience in Liberia. This is a MUST for anyone... More
