This restaurant was at the hotel we stayed at and unfortunately we had dinner there the first night and I ordered Poke, very salty and not great and my wife got ravioli which she said was mushy and off tasting, it kind of looked like...the Costco frozen in a bag ravioli.More

We ate at this restaurant because it was located at our hotel. I ordered the prawns wrapped with mozzarella cheese and bacon. They were horrible. I couldn’t eat them and what little I did eat didn’t stay with me. The other 4 people that ate...with me had ok meals. We did have the stuffed portobello mushrooms and they were good. Breakfast was also included with our room. It was ok.More

Two hours for a meal consisting of soup and salad, and waiting for the bill? Pura vida I understand, but I really didn't need to spend this amount of time on simple fare. It wasn't the servers' fault; there were only two of them, and...they were responsible for a large number of people. Besides taking and delivering orders, they served as hard-working bartenders and cashiers. Clearly, management needs to hire more staff here. Another meal consumed less time, but the wood-fired octopus had an "off" flavor that wasn't disguised by the charcoal taste. I should have sent it back. Breakfast, included with the rooms at La Foresta was OK, but unremarkable. There aren't any other decent restaurants in the immediate area; for a (much) better dining experience, you'll need to go into Quepos.More

Server was very friendly and helpful.We order 2 margaritas which were delicious. We were not very adventurous with our meal selection and ordered chicken marsala and fish mahi mahi with an assortment of fresh vegetables. Everything was delicious and cooked perfectly. - very fresh and...flavourful. This is a Non Smoking facility which is a bonus. Beautiful setting with an outdoor open patio.More

We had the breakfast, better than most especially during the low season. Ala cart menu this time of year but that was OK and the coffee was good. Went for dinner, had the fettucini which I almost never have but it was soo good I...had to go back the next night for another. My only complaint was that they served no bread with the fettucini which for an Italian meal I would think they would have something. I asked for some and just got bread. Also no parmesan cheese with the dish. Aside from those two things the dish was really good. Sauce not too thick or creamy, very light for a fettucini alfredo. Maurice our waiter was great and accommodating.More

We stayed at the La Foresta Nature Resort in mid March. In our price we received breakfast daily. The local breakfast was the best and it was standard, two eggs, rice and beans, cheese with plantain. I wanted to personally thank Mauricio for giving us...a great welcome. We chatted a bit with him our second day about food and he was super kind to bring us there sour cream to try with the rice and also had our queso fritto as we stated it was our favourite. He also gave us tips about how to buy the cheese and I already bought some here back in Toronto. I would highly recommend this restaurant for the service and quality of their local meal. I did not try lunch or dinner here as we wanted to go into town but I'm sure it would be good. Ambiance was very nice as the restaurant is outdoor and surrounded by the trees at the back. Occasionally there were lizards, butterflies and beautiful birds to view while having our meal. Thanks Mauricio you made our stay at La Foresta that much more enjoyable!More

This large open plan patio restaurant is in the grounds of the equally large new La Foresta motel and when we arrived at 8 pm to find nobody at the bar and only on table of four eating there I must admit my expectations dropped....However we were well greeted by barman and waiter Mauricio and after trying two very good rum cocktails we proceeded to our table where I had the best most tender octopus I have ever eaten, presented in a very "nouvelle cuisine" kind of way but enough to constitute a meal on its own. Tuna was equally well presented. The menu is laminated, and choices are limited, so I certainly can't see hotel guests eating there every night for a week, and after the first visit there would be no surprises. However the service and standard of cooking was excellent . Prices are fairly steep but this is in keeping with other restaurants in the area eg at the marina. The wine list is better priced than some - 20 dollars can still get you a bottle of house WhiteMore
