Description: Our Restaurant Nectar at Hotel Florblanca is laid back and elegant; an indoor/outdoor hangout for guests and locals wanting to dine, celebrate, or enjoy after a day at the beach. The kitchen serves up fusion cuisine with Latin, Mediterranean and Asian influences. The menu is built around seasonal ingredients with an emphasis on organic local produce, fresh seafood from the surrounding waters, and traditional favorites. From sushi to fish tacos, from salads to chocolate souffle, our menu is varied and creative.

“Great spot for lunch”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We visited Mal Pais in the low season (mid-September) and much in the area was closed so we guessed a hotel restaurant like Nectar might be open and were right. It's a 15-20 minute drive northwest from the main crossroads of Mal Pais to Flor Blanca hotel so you need a vehicle. The restaurant is set near the beach and has a large roof that makes it a little dark but also keeps it cool. We had fish tacos and pulled pork tacos which were very good and a Costa Rican artisanal beer. They also let us use their beach area which seemed fair as the restaurant prices are not cheap (though the pool is for hotel guests only). The beach is very steep so the waves get big at the shoreline but it felt fairly safe as it is narrow strip bordered by rocky headlands.

“Best Ever”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We spent an entire week at this resort and I'd go back in a heartbeat. The cuisine was outstanding and the staff were amazing. We had 38 people in our wedding party all staying there for a week. Everyone was so accommodating. Each meal was an adventure ~~ and I mean that in the best possible way. We all were very pleased with our meals ~ and don't get me started on the cocktails! Ambience ~ ahhh ~ you are in a jungle by the ocean.

“Good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

This was a little pricey given all the great food available in the area, but the food was good and the setting ideal! They have a full "american" kids menu. We shared a sushi appetizer, mango salad, and tuna - all were good and the tuna was cooked perfectly.
