Great tasting food in front of the beautiful beach of Santa Teresa. A modern take on Costa Rican typical dishes. I really enjoyed the tico breakfast of fried plantain gallo pinto wrap and the grilled octopus.

Very good food, the fish is fresh and the coctails are very good.
Go for the Desayuno Nicoyano in the morning. When you are lazing in the pool side or the beach go for the Nantipa Sunrise.

An excellent restaurant at Nantipa Hotel. Right on Santa Teresa´s beach and a great place for drinks and food with an ocean view.

Brand new! You can sit at a table where a nice breeze blows or you can have drinks at the bar. Alternatively there are some tables on the sand where you sit on cushions on a tatami /rug. If you want to splurge on a special occasion you can also arrange for a private table at the beach. The location and ambience are perfect as you are literally a few feet from the beach. You can hear the waves breaking and if you come around 5:30 you can watch some of the most amazing sunsets. The bar is well stocked and the bartender is creative with his cocktails ranging from the typical margaritas to more local things like agua de sapo. The appetizers were great and fair sized. Our party had the ceviche, the grilled octopus and the tuna poke. All these were very tasty. Main courses included the lechon which was absolutely delicious, grilled mahi mahi and the steak. And to finish mousse of avellanas was the perfect way to finish the evening. The service was also exceptional which is not always the case in Costa Rica. Unlike most other places in Sta Teresa credit cards are welcome here!
