- We just come back from a trip of 3 weeks in Costa Rica and if we have to keep just one thing about our trip is certainly the "Kon Tiki Playa Negra" in Nicoya Peninsula, Guanacaste, NW. Play Negra is the perfect spot to have a stop on the pacific coast to enjoy the waves of the multitud spots and the Nationals Parks of the North East of the country.
- we stopped just for one night in Kon Tikki and we decided to stay one week more just after discover theit amazing roots cabinas, fresh and heavy foods and a friendly welcoming from Pascal and Camille.
- Believe me : If you d like to find one a the best face of Costa Rica, have a stop to Kon Tikki Playa Negra and you ll enjoy all the "tica" way of life can offer you. Pura Vida !

We stumbled on this gem while looking for a place for dinner. What a find ! No menu... .but 5 star food. Its like going to your best friends home and watching them cook dinner in the kitchen while you have drinks. A delightfully welcoming french couple who are professionally trained chefs. We went on a fishing trip while we were there and brought the fish back to the restaurant. They prepared it for us for dinner and it was wonderful ! They also have rooms to rent and a cozy gazebo type patio with a BBQ pit. We sat under the gazebo listening to the rain and sipping Imperial while our dinner was prepared. You cant go wrong here !

My friend and I decided on Kon Tiki for dinner for our much needed girls night. We couldn't have picked a more perfect spot! What a cozy, intimate atmosphere they have created. We were greeted by the sweetest couple that owns and runs the restaurant/cabinas. We started with wine and hors d'oeuvres that got our tastebuds begging for more. The aromas that were drifting from the kitchen were tantilizing our hungry bellies, promising a delectable feast. Oh la la, it was divine! Baby shrimp in a spicy tomato sauce, lentils, rice and a mango chutney. The flavors married well and appeased our appetite. For dessert we indulged in a scrumptious chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. Between the welcoming hosts, great conversation, inviting ambiance and savory food Kon Tiki is a memorable spot that will be visited often!!!

We came upon this after venturing from Hotel Playa Negra. The combination owners, chef, maitre d', bartender, and server are a French couple who have operated the Kon Tiki for five months as of March, 2011. The food and service were excellent. There is only one main meal served every night--no ordering off of a menu--and one dessert. Tonight the meal was sliced freash radish served on french bread, baked sea bass served under au gratin potatoes with an herb and cream sauce, and a flourless chocolate cake with a scoop of ice cream. The food used local fresh ingredients and was prepared and served lovingly. We will return to Kon Tiki before we leave Playa Negra. Dinner for 3 with 3 glasses of wine, 2 cocktails, and 2 desserts totaled $60.
