The menu at Exotica was one of the best we have seen with something for everyone without being too over the top. It was hard to decide what to order but we decided on the pate, a fish in garlic and a shrimp with coconut milk. The flavors were a very good, portions ample and the pate was very not your typical pate in that it had some texture to it which made it very interesting. We ordered a French Red wine which was excellent and the lime dessert. I would probably order a different dessert next time since there were so many to choose from. We will go back when in the area again.

We had a great meal here with our adult son and his girlfriend. They wanted to treat us to a special place. We tried all different appetizers, drink specialties, and entrees. Then we topped it off with several different deserts, which we passed around. Everything was wonderful. Don't expect to be out of here quickly, as it's a busy restaurant and they don't believe in fast service. Fine cuisine takes time, so just sit back and relax, and enjoy a memorable evening of dinner and drinks you won't soon forget.

We always try to come to Exotica when in Costa Rica and we are never disappointed. The food here is always excellent. I'm still dreaming about the most delicious fish I've ever eaten! It came with banana curry. My husband had the ceviche, pork with port and passion fruit sorbet. All fresh, delicious and beautifully presented! The owner is very welcoming and always friendly. Superb!

We had our anniversary dinner at the Exotica and both enjoyed it very much. The service is amazing and each course was outstanding. We haven't had a meal like that since we left the U.S. 18 months ago! The best ceviche in CR, chicken caesar salad super fresh & delicious, the chicken exotica was out of this world with plums, cream cheese, bacon! The passionfruit dessert ended us on a high note. We will definitely be back!

Exotica is very well reviewed and deserves the review. The owner is charming, offers very personal service. The food was first rate. Prices are more like the USA - about $90 for dinner plus wine - but the food was excellent. Well prepared, well-presented and tasty. It's simple outdoor dining, and most enjoyable.
