“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

We have been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner getting warm and friendly service each time. The food has always been very fresh and delicious and sitting outside on the deck enjoying a mocha is wonderful. Our new favorite spot in the Playa Flamingo area!!

“What an Amazing Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Finding good restaurants is always a bit hit and miss in Costa Rica.

We were therefore amazed and delighted to find Cafe Conchal right on our doorstep.

I can find nothing but praise. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The portions are not large - as the menu points out - but two dishes more than make a meal. But most of all the warmth of welcome from the owner and chef Brad, who will explain carefully each dish.

As someone once said - 'we will be back'!

“Memorable Experience, We'll Be Back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

My family and I had two wonderful experiences at Cafe Conchal while we were in Guanacaste. The food and service were the best we experienced during our 6 month stay in Costa Rica, and we highly recommend this restaurant. The venue is warm, comfortable and inviting and has an understated elegance. On one occasion, we sat outside and really enjoyed watching the world go by while we relaxed in easy comfort with ceiling fans whirling above us and a parade of excellent food making its way to our table. The other time, we enjoyed the dining room inside, and I loved the sensation of being so near the kitchen where all that lovely food was being beautifully prepared.

If you want something light, delicious, and completely satisfying, I recommend the the seafood soup which is full of expertly prepared fish and sea food in a flavorful light broth. Every bite was perfect, every piece of fish cooked to perfection. My husband had a heartier meal, the Chipotle Turkey Club which was a wonderful blend of flavor, texture and substance. In Costa Rica, we often found that portions weren’t big enough for our massive American appetites, but all of us were completely satisfied at Cafe Conchal. Our little one had the mushroom ravioli in a sauce that can only be described as sublime.

Absolutely not to be missed are the smoothies, my two favorites of which were the mango and the watermelon. I have tried to duplicate those flavors here at home -- the memory will stay with me. I loved the surprise of the ginger flavor and the sweetness of the orange juice blended with the mango. Cafe Conchal is a great restaurant, our favorite by far in all of Costa Rica.
