After discovering Alma on our trip in April 2013 we were looking forward to visiting again. Thankfully the food did not disappoint and we returned two nights out if the past three!

The restaurant itself has a nice atmosphere and is located off the main roadway so it quiet. The food is prepared with care by the owners themselves. We enjoyed the fish of the day, chicken with peanut sauce and pad thai. Prices were excellent for the quality and quantity of food.

We will certainly be back again on this stay and our next!

We went twice during our stay and enjoyed every meal we had. Fresh Mahi Mahi with a pineapple curry, tasty ceviche rolls, wrapped in tuna and avocado along with amazing Tuna Tataki. This is a must go and their Moscow Mules are delicious….

We had a great experience in Alma. The food was exquisite and generous and the place is perfectly designed. The latter, plus a nice conversation with the owner, made it a perfect night for us.

We are a Swedish couple who have spent 1 months in Santa Teresa. Alma is on our top 3 list of places to eat. We have only had the fish dishes, but they are grat and has a little twist when you are a bit tired of regular spicy Tunas and Mahi. Great service, cosy and definately worth a try. Go there!

I went to Alma two nights ago with my husband and we were happily surprised. We had a delicious unagi roll to share as an appetizer, my husband had the shrimp pad thai as the main course and I had the catch of the day in a curry sauce with sauteed vegetables on the side. The size of the pad thai could have been bigger but it was full of flavor and the amount of shrimp was more than enough. My mahi was very fresh, skin-on and the curry sauce was wonderful. I also had a refreshing pizco sour that was served in a beautiful big glass. Loved it!
The place is small and cozy perfect for a date but not for a family or a big group of friends. The prices are good for the quality of the food. The service is a bit slow though. Overall I would say Alma is a must if you come to Santa Teresa. Good eats!
