This is without a doubt the best restaurant I've eaten in my 2 weeks I've been in Costa Rica so far. The atmosphere in this restaurant is one of the best I've ever seen, and the staff was wonderful. Ofcourse with this also comes slightly higher prices than in other restaurants, yet to me this was expected because of the higher quality you receive.
The food overall was delicious, yet there were some minor flaws. Three people at my table ordered the Porterhouse steak, but the quality of the meat varied noticeably. While my steak was magnificent, another steak at our table seemed to have a lot of fat throughout the steak. This made in less tender, but it didn't affect the great taste.
Another curiosity was the red wine, which was served cold. Not that this ruined the wine, yet it come as a surprise to us since everyone at our table was used to red wine being served at room temperature.
Lastly for me the dark chocolate mousse was not a success. Although it looked great and the structure of the mousse (with which some restaurants struggle) was great, the taste seemed a bit off. It didn't really taste like dark chocolate, more like really cheap milk chocolate (not trying to offend, just trying to describe). I let other people at my table try and they shared my opinion.
That being said, these were the only flaws I could find even after thinking for a long time. I told the waitress about the mousse, after which she offered me a replacement dessert. After I politely declined she decided not to put the mousse on the check at all. I have to same I'm impressed by the service at this restaurant, everything they do is to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Great compliments to them!
After the night ended with free shots I was truly convinced that, even though there were some flaws during my visit, this restaurant is (one of) the best in Puerto Viejo and surroundings.
Thanks to the staff for this great evening! If you visit Puerto Viejo, visit this place when you have the time!
