Review of Casa Botania

Casa Botania
Ranked #2 of 5 Restaurants in San Vito
Cuisines: Costa Rican
Description: Casa Botania is a B&B located about 4 k south of San Vito de Coto Brus. If it is not full of guests choosing to make dinner reservations, then one can dine there even if one is staying at the Wilson Botanical Garden or in San Vito center. The site is just one year old with two cabins and interior room in the small main building. The facilities are in the vernacular--comfortable and in good taste. The food is exceptional for the region--with extra care taken to buy the freshest ingredients locally available. My husband and I have eaten there at least six times and are never disappointed. The last dinner was the best ever--a thick filet of robalo (snook) perfectly cooked with a mustard cream sauce, browned garlic mashed potatoes and a broiled half tomato with parleyed bread crumbs. This was preceded by a divine and sophisticated fish soup (probably the robalo's bones lent themselves to the broth), with toast points a tad charred on the tips--just right! One could imagine being in Marseilles. Finally, crepes suzettes made with Grand Marnier. The owners are Belgian and Tico, and the results are certainly the best meal one can find in the San Vito region. Whenever we have guests from out of town, we find our way to the charming Casa Botania for dinner.
