Best of them all... here you taste the passion of a Spaniard cook for his regional flavors with local ingredients. Unbelievable, on top of that chef... yes chef... you rule! You know how to treat your crew!!!!

Best restaurant in Uvita!! We went here for 2 out of our 3 nights and enjoyed it so much. The food is perfect, the ambiance is lovely and the people who work there make it the most amazing experience. So friendly and caring. We have...had the steak with red wine sauce, and white wine sauce. For me, I loved the red wine sauced steak, it was the best steak I have ever had for sure. My partner had both over the two days, he loved them both, but he would choose the white wine sauce because it focused more on the steak flavour of the steak. Try the bread with ai oli as well, the sangria and dessert crema catalan are wonderful as well. The seafood was great as well, I had the salmon and shrimp, which were perfect. It is a really authentic vibe with good quality products. Go there, talk with your loved ones and enjoy the food and ambiance.More

This is a small restaurant close to the beach with excellent seafood. It recently moved north from the location you see on google maps and worth searching out. The chef came out to show us two freshly caught red snappers that weren’t on the menu....We decided to have one and it was delicious. The staff were all very nice. We are going back to try their paella..More

Best dinner in Costa Rica so far! We’ve been here ten days and have had many amazing meals at many beautiful restaurants in Santa Teresa and Uvita. At Sabor, we finally found the perfect mix of local “vibe”, delicious food and great service. Our ability...to speak Spanish is abysmal and the staff were very quick to say that their “English isn’t good” but they made such a great effort anyway to communicate, and did so very effectively! We started with potatoes bravas and shared a seafood paella. The paella rivaled our memories of paella in Barcelona and Ibiza. The very small dining area and open view into the kitchen creates a family dining room type of experience. The owner comes to every table multiple times and loves to chat with everyone. He even sat with us and treated us to celebratory limoncello and Bailey’s to close out the night. It will be a challenge to top this experience in our last few days in beautiful Uvita!More

Everything we ordered was delicious - fajitas, chimichanga, margarita...only disappointment was that they didn't have chicharrones the day we visited. Would definitely return the next time we're in the area

This easily became one of my favourite restaurants in Uvita, Costa Rica. I became addicted to the sangria (drank it like juice) and I still have dreams of the Salmon cooked in a coconut sauce. *mouth watering.* The owners are adorable and the sweet chef...will come out to your table to make sure you're enjoying your meal. Love the look of the place and the quiet, easy and cosy vibe. Highly recommend.More

We were hoping for a good meal and found a great restaurant with unique offerings. The grilled squid was really good. The muscles was nothing short of spectacular with a really unique sauce with a hint if sweetness. We're light eaters but couldn't help but...ordering the sensational mushroom dish. Not only did the chef offer authentic Spanish cousine, but he came out to chat with all the diners to see how we enjoyed the food.More

My husband and I came here for dinner while we were in Uvita. It was an adorable open air restaurant with strong service. Keep in mind their english was somewhat limited. Also it does not bother us and was fairly common in costa rica from...what we saw but there were several dogs and cats wandering throughout the restaurant that our waitress said belonged to the neighbor. We had the potato tapa for an appetizer which was pretty large and then I had the chicken skewers with bananas wrapped in bacon. That was a surprisingly delicious combination. Overall I felt that the prices were a little high but the portions were large and we would likely return.More

Friendly Spanish owners, Spanish wine and beer, Spanish food, even Spanish mineral water. What's not too like? It's in a humble building down a dirt road and has only a few tables so reservations are important. It's worth the effort!

This cute little restaurant run by 2 sweet Spaniards was absolutely amazing. We ordered the mushroom appetizers and had to order a second one. Will definitely be coming back here! Food was a little pricey but sooo worth it

Loved the food here! The owners are from Spain so you can find sangria, paella, patas bravas and more on the menu! Lamb was great! There's an amazing dish on the menu with chicken, bacon, banana, grapes drizzled in a tasty sauce. Use whatsapp to...contact and make a reservation as it can get busy! I used to live in Spain and I can attest this will bring back memories!More

Incredible Spanish cuisine cooked by the family. We tried the Seafood Paella and it was world class. We room also the shrimp salad and it was so tasty and ended with a Spanish dessert. Nice vibe in the place and a great positive energy.
