Description: Benedictus is located in a volcano slope with a unique view of the valley o La Palma de la Fortuna and Monterrey.The restaurant its a beautiful wood building surrounded by pasture land and primary forest overlooking the valley.The lamb, cattle, pork and chicken we serve are breaded free range in the farm and we bring the vegetables from Tapezco a little town two hours away from Fortuna, where Mr. Juan Jose Paniagua, a Pioner in the organic agriculture in Costa Rica, produce the best organic vegetables. We are 800 metros away of the main road that link La Fortuna with the Arenal Lake. The gate its just in Front of the Volcano Lodge Hotel.

The 800 meter steep drive up the mountain is well worth the effort. The place is beautiful and the view amazing. We had the house speciality, a selection of free range meats, with vegetables, plantains and rice. Now you know how meat should taste. the red house wine tasted very nice. And for desert we had plantain flambé with ice cream, the light was turned down when the orange liquor was set to fire. The children had home made Brownies, which they ate to the last crumb.

This was right across the street from our hotel (Nayara), but you have to drive there - it's up a steep driveway! It's like being in someone's house, which is really cool. It's an intimate dining space and the service was excellent. The food was served in large portions and we were satisfied with our meal.

My wife and I recently dined at Benedictus under the recommendation of our hotel staff, and I quickly realized why. Excellent food, excellent service, and a very memorable dining room. My only regret is not making our reservations early enough to take advantage of the incredible view from the dining room. If you go, make sure to allow yourself some daylight!

We decided to go there pretty late! I definately recommend going here earlier. The food was good. They had a good selection to choose from.

A very secluded, intimate location. We dined at night so we could not see the view, which we heard was magificant. Only about 8-10 tables and when we went only two others were taken. Highly recommended.
