The food in Montezuma is fantatsic, and this restaurant is no exception. The menu changes often. and the quality of the food and the selection would fit in beautifully at a restaurant in NYC or San Francisico--excpet here you have the surf lapping near the table and and sand underfoot. One of Montezuma's best!

What a beautiful atmosphere! I love that the menu changes daily based on what the chef finds fresh locally. I had a whole barracuda wrapped around grilled bell pepper, with polenta colored with squid ink and a green sauce. For dessert was the chocolate blackberry torte. My main dish was $20, so this is probably one of the priciest places in town, but definitely worth a visit!

playa de los artistas was the best restaurant i experienced while in costa rica. the food and service were impeccable. the atmosphere was incredible. the look, the design, the bathroom, the outdoor fireplace, the outdoor pizza oven, the fresh fish, the view, the art, the bathroom, the artist created menu cover and hand printed daily menu combined to create an incomparable experience. Though i listed the restaurant as a casual sit down (because it is a casual dress laid back place), the price is not casual. Price for 2 with drinks was approximately $70 US.

During our month trip in this wonderful country we tried to eat as much as possible local. And we were often very pleased. Often the poorer the place looked the better the food was. We tried to avoid european or american food. But this was very special! The setting on a beautiful beach, candles and nice furniture, great service, and excellent food was just amazing! What struck me most is that they managed to blend in the Italian origins with local products.

wow! i cant begin to tell how great this is. the location is right on the beach. large wooden slab tables. right next to the surf. we had a caviar brushetta for an appetizer.i had a mahi mahi stew with potatoes in a tomato based thick broth. my fried had octopus on white beans. i wish i could in words convey how my taste buds went wild. you cant beat the atmosphere. we had to go back agin. the menu is always changing. it is expensive but well worth the cost. if you are anywhere near you have to stop. 5 stars isnt enough!!
