“Lovely dinners 2 days / week”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

Among all the great places to eat in Yelapa, Liana's was one of my favorites. (Monday and Tuesday nights)

Both dinners I ate there were excellent and reasonably priced and afterward, local musicians played for our enjoyment and quite evidently their own.

Liana's chocolate lava cake is to die for!

The eggs Blackstone brunch (Thursdays) was excellent as well

Relaxing spot in the jungle, gem of a spot with attentive service, fine chef, relaxing music by local musicians and friends.

“Come for the food AND the people!!!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013 via mobile

We have been to Liana's 3 times since we arrived in Yelapa a week ago! 2 dinners and one brunch - all were delicious!!! Liana is a lovely person and a great cook - we spent Halloween dinner there and Liana cooked up some tasty treats - spicy pumpkin soup, meatloaf, mashed potatoes with mashed beet root and all was delicious and fun sitting at a long communal table with lively conversation!!! We highly recommend the the short walk up river to this magical place!!! Yum!

“Tasty food in a jungle setting”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

We ate dinner here twice while staying in Yelapa. Both meals were excellent. The menu was limited but well thought out, usually choices of meat/chicken, fish, vegetarian. Only complaint was that she ran out of dessert one night. :) Definitely looking forwards to returning!
