We had the most amazing server, Susie. She gave us recommendations and was very efficient with drinks, meal and follow up. We had the chips and guacamole. The chips are served hot and are pita like. The guacamole accompanied the chips perfectly The sushi was...delicious and very fresh! We ended our evening with espresso martinis and they were amazingMore

The santa Teresa experience wouldn't haven't complete without the sushi buffet here on the Monday night of the 10th of Feb! It was a delight. The taste was heavenly. The accompanying cocktail was so delicious too. The DJ played the best hits from the 80s....We had a fantastic night out. The coconut sorbet dessert was so yumm too. I loved every bit.More

We had the best meal at Nectar! We were staying in Playa Santa Teresa and when we did go out for dinner, it was always amongst the dust and noise so this restaurant was a lovely respite. The fish was fresh caught and local, the...sushi was some of the best we'd every had - anywhere. The service was friendly, calm and so pleasant. The best restaurant meal of our trip!More

We were very impressed by the quality and freshness of the food at Nectar; the fish dishes were especially good. Chef Belen and her team are very talented. We enjoyed very good service from Yuri, Alison and Ruth and would highly recommend this restaurant.

We had breakfast daily at Flor Banca's Nectar Restaurant during our 10 day in Santa Teresa. We had excellent service from Yuri, Ruth, and all the staff that we met there. They were personable, professional, and went out of their way to be helpful. They...all exhibited the Pura Vida spirit. The food was excellent. We look forward to coming back. Steph and PhilMore

I had the opportunity to visit the Florblanca Resort in Santa Teresa for a yoga retreat. The resort also includes the Nectar restaurant so this review is for both of those. What an absolutely beautiful property and so well maintained. All the yoga classes were...held in this yoga room that has the most amazing view of the lush surroundings and ocean beyond. Lets talk about the gorgeous pool area and yes private beach that are just steps away with loungers that face out to the ocean. And the spa! I've never been to a more beautiful spa. I got the relaxing massage and I never wanted it to end. I got to enjoy the fresh water whirlpool after. Seriously take me back! And everyone that works at Florblanca/Nectar…wow so genuinely nice and helpful always giving the best service. Wherever you are on the property I felt like someone was watching out for your needs. Just superior service and I so appreciated all their many small helpful gestures. The restaurant itself (which is right overlooking the pool area and private beach), the food was excellent. The seafood was so fresh. My favorite dish was the pasta with shrimp…so yummy! And their chips and dip…homemade pita chips with homemade guacamole (so good!), fresh salsa, this amazing bean deep, and cheese queso…I’m making myself hungry just thinking about it. Oh and the smoothies! Sooo good. My favorite was the Indulge. I had to take a pic of that recipe to take home. I would just like to give a special shout out to the people working at Florblanca/Nectar who made my stay there so wonderful: Ruth and Luis (extra special shout outs, thank you for the good conversations :), Kendall, Berneth, Yury, Lucy, Alison, Jose, Laura, and Oscar. Thank you again! I could not recommend this place more highly.More

Luis and the bartender took great care of us! We had the tuna tartar and the beef tenderloin. Delicious!!! Very elegant restaurant right on the ocean. The bartender made me a custom drink based off the flavors I like and Luis catered to every need!...Ask to sit in their sections!More

We were vacationing in Santa Teresa and went to nectar for dinner. Their food is excellent! Everything we tried was a top notch. There was a guitar and violin players, very Romantic and relaxing. We got complementary champagne, few amuse bush. Their bread was very...warm, soft. We had pear salad and some seafood appetizer, forgot to take the picture, we ate it right away. As a meal we had seared ahi tuna and red fish. Both had a great flavor. For dessert we drank a bottle dessert wine and ordered few desserts. Very good experience, not the cheapest place, but way worth it!More

Unfortunately we were given an isolated table that was not lit therefore it was hard to see what we were eating. Food was very good however and the staff were very professional and welcoming. Would recommend.

My girlfriend and I just got back from our evening at Florblanca. We visited Spa Bambu and then had an unreal dinner. Our server (from Spain) provided such great service as well as all of the other supporting staff. We sampled the jalapeno Margarita, cerviche,...tuna sashimi, jerk chicken and cauliflower salad. I walked out of there knowing that we'd spent a lot of money but I'd do it 10x over knowing how well we dined and were treated. It was stunning in every way.More

Great experience at Nectar. Was our go to place for breakfast and poolside cocktails. Food is very good but a little bit pricey. What makes this place 5 stars is the staff. Ruth is an amazing server who is super helpful and a great resource...for fun things to do in Santa Teresa. Many props to Florblanca management for having such a great person on their staff.More
