I highly highly recommend this place! First of all you are supporting a local family business. Cindy's attention is unparalleled. Not only she treated us very well, but she also went the extra mile on different occasions anytime I needed her help. Also the food...is amazing and there is a little trail to the forest right there! If you visit Uvita - Bahia Ballena area, stop there - you won't be disappointed!More

This is such a fun little restaurant. I would highly recommend you stop by. If you are with a group, order one of everything and sample everything. It's all so good! I wish there was food this good in the U.S.

My wife and I had decided to pretty much stay away from people and cook at our BnB in Uvita on our “Covid Vacation” After reading the reviews for Los Laurels we had to give them a try. Boy are we glad we did. We...have only visited CR twice, but this is by far the best food we have eaten in CR. First of all, hand sanitizer at each table, masks worn by all the staff, including chef and hand wash facilities just off the open air dining area. Spotlessly clean. We split the fish tacos and chicken patacones. Wife had a strawberry margarita and I had a lemon margarita. The portions were large, we just barley finished it all. Taste was so authentic but the sauce that owner Cindy’s husband made that same morning was fabulous. Cindy was a delight. Greeting every customer, showing pictures and describing each dish. She also offered me a hammock to nap in after the big, wonderful meal she served. Do not miss this place in Uvita. They offer take out, which we will also take advantage of. We will return at least once more before we have to leave. No hesitation, 5 thumbs up.More

I don't ever use the word best unless I can honestly say, "none better!!" After 5 visits to Los Laureles over the past couple years I can now feel 100% comfortable writing this review and saying the word best! #1 Best service: Cindy is co-owner...with her husband who is the chef and his passion for quality tasty and creative dishes along with her love of people and service make for a very enjoyable experience hands down. #1 Best food!! My husband was a chef in his younger years and would use Kelly's in Buffalo New York to compare all Buffalo Wings to. Last night I said, "Pat these are the 'best' Buffalo wings I've ever had!" He very seriously weighed in and agreed. Now don't get me wrong their brisket, seafood and creative local dishes are exceptional as well, but "best" Buffalo Wings, in Costa Rica...just wow!! And please tell Cindy Amy referred you. Nothing wrong with giving someone another reason to smile.More

This was a perfect lunch with my husband. Since COVID, we rarely venture out. The seating was absolutely COVID safe with social distancing. All staff maintained social distancing and wore masks. The food was simply outstanding, the staff was super warm and welcoming. It was...immaculately clean with such a wonderful jungle atmosphere. Service could not have been better. The owner, Cindy was just a delightful person to be around. So attentive to every customer. I'm so anxious to go back and try other menu items. The menu was so extensive and covers everything. I had the absolute best cheeseburger since I left South Georgia 2 1/2 years ago. 3 Thumbs up 👆 I highly recommend this awesome restaurant and can't wait to return.More

When we want to go out for lunch or dinner, we consider all the restaurants, but invariably end up at Los Laureles. Why? Because the food is amazing. Cindy is an absolute job. The prices are good. And it feels like I am at home...with family and friends. We keep saying that we need to try out other places, but always seem to end up at Los Laureles. The patacones are incredible!!!More

Each time I visit Bahia/Uvita, I make sure I stop by Los Laureles because their staff and owners are some of the most humble, kind, and friendly people; plus their entire menu is jam packed with delicious, thoughtful, and healthy options for all! I highly...recommend their quesadillas and strawberry/chicken salad loaded with healthy treats. COVID-19: I felt safe dining there because they took the safety protocols seriously by ensuring all staff were masked, guest tables were spread apart and equipped with personal hand sanitizer, and they even added an additional hand washing station.More

The only place on our whole trip through costa rica that had a large number of customers in covid-times, with good reason! Everything looked delicious so we decided to split a beacon cheeseburger, a veggie quesidilla, chili fries and buffulo wings. It tasted as it...looked. Don’t be fooled by our large order, portions are generous. Definitely try the Fireball margharita! Make sure you have a responsible driver with you because you’ll want more. And of course the service is impeccable. Cindy is a natural!More
