We have visited this restaurant twice this week. We have met with Karen each time and she has advised me on my best choices for a gluten free meal. Both meals I enjoyed were delicious, good value, and have not affected my food allergy (celiac).
We also purchased some lovely and affordable 'souvenirs' from the attached shop which we know our friends back home will enjoy. Definitely the best restaurant in Oesterillos Oeste, which a great relaxed atmosphere combined with excellent and flavorful food.

If you're in Jaco, this small restaurant is worth the trip. We had the shrimp special and the chicken with Thai penut sauce. Both were delicious, came in large portions, and were reasonably priced.

We loved it so much we made a second visit. They are closed on Sundays. Check out their specials and don't forget the desserts.

Me and my girlfriend stayed in Esterillos Oeste for a month last fall. We went to Los Alemendros a couple of times, and each time we were completely taken by the atmosphere and the food. The outside open concept made for a perfect night, the waiters and owner of the restaurant were so friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic! Nice blend of Caribbean and local. Their black bean soup is to die for, great sea food, and of course the classic Tico fave, rice n' beans!

Will definitely go back to Los Alemendros!

We were staying close to this restaurant and the locals gave it great reviews so we went to try it out and kept going back to sample other dishes on the Menu. Tofu can regularly be substituted for meat in most dishes, the seasoning is savory and fresh and the service terrific. We highly recommend this unique restaurant.
