This restaurant is up higher than the street, which is nice for cutting down on noise and dust from the road. The vibe is light, airy and Zen.

The owner, Glem , came from El Salvador after 17 years in the hospitality business and started the restaurant a year ago.

We started with guacamole and plantain chips – delicious, with a nice citrus taste. Seems like bananas and avocado may not go well together but it was a nice combo. Even the water had a flavorful slice of lime that made it so refreshing!

My boyfriend ordered the Caribbean ceviche, which came with crispy plantains. Such a nice combo of flavors, with coconut and spice that added a little kick. I decided to try their specialty, Patacones - A salad on top of a bed of plantains with the choice of protein or veggies. I chose the fish option. The salad was a combo of veggies and tropical fruit, and the fish was fresh and delicious! All three dishes were presented beautifully, upscale style - yet the entire bill was only $34, (20,000 colones) very reasonable for two entrées, an appetizer and two high end bottled waters.

We weren't drinking but they had a very nice selection of beer and wine and I overheard a couple complementing Glem on her delicious sangria.

The whole meal was refreshing and light, but at the same time filling thanks to the plantains. I'm not gluten-free but I think it's definitely the go to place for those who are.

All in all, our favorite so far during our two week visit, and a welcome change in atmosphere from the hustle bustle of being on ground level of the main road.

The place its very unique. The environment and decoration its done with good taste and according to beach atmosphere.
The food is great, specially the Tacos Platter selection (3 tacos). Price is reasonable according to the area.
Most important part of the experience. The owner is taking care of every small detail and making customers feel like home
Definitively a place to come back again.

It's hard to get a truly bad meal in Santa Teresa...the restaurant fare is pretty good. But occasionally, I eat somewhere that has that perfect mix of atmosphere, attention, and outstanding food. We intended for Tostmetro to be a mid-afternoon snack, but after we left, we went back and got four dinners to-go for later that evening. The tacos were delicious, the beer was ice-cold, the staff was amazing, and the owner was the perfect host. Definitely our new favorite restaurant in Santa Teresa. And don't forget the Sangria Happy Hour every day from 6-8 pm. Go There!!

I had a vegan coconut curry with rice and a small salad! Really delicious! The service could be a little bit more friendly but the interior of the restaurant is beautiful! Normal prices for Costa Rica (5000 Colones). Fresh coconut for only 1300!

Beautiful, open-air restaurant, friendliest staff, delicious cocktails,and one of the best meals I've ever had! Freshest ingredients, super healthy, and so many creative flavors and combinations. I think the fish taco was my favorite, but we also loved the coconut milk ceviche and the patacone dishes are incredible. Also dont forget to order the passionfruit margaritas, so refreshing and handmade to order!!
