We took a trip up to el Boqueron National Park and decided to have lunch here on our way down. The setting on the mountainside is lush and we were happily surprised by the plant nursery at the front of the property. This much more than a restaurant.
A small museum is set up in the main house along with the original clay ovens used to roast coffee. There were stems of birds-of-paradise flowers everywhere and there are rooms which can be used for private meetings and parties. There's a gorgeous fountain in the center courtyard.
As the day was somewhat cloudy and cool on the mountain, we had soup. The chicken soup was hearty and full of chicken and vegetables. The shrimp soup was thoroughly flavourful with big portions of shrimp and sweet green leafy vegetables in a tomato base. Our meals were accompanied by tortillas and nachos as well as thick hot chocolate which was perfect as we looked out over the San Salvador valley. We ended with excellent coffee from the plantation. We picked up 2 lbs to take home!
The price was great-3 people lunch with apps and dessert-under 25$ including tip. Note that they add a 10% tip automatically to the bill but we had such a great experience that we wanted to leave a little bit more-the service was attentive and friendly. Plenty of photo ops with the luxury of taking your time to set up. We will be back to try their dinner menu on our next visit.
