Lasagne was the best! Homemade pasta and great inventive cocktails. Atmosphere really nice. Wooden tables made from tree trunks and kitschy lights. Service great. Waitress told us about each item and when asked gave us her recommendations. For fresh and gourmet in laid back environment try Al Chile Viola. We will be back next year I hope.

This place is amazing! We ate there 3 times trying different dishes and cocktails. The flavors, quality of ingredients and ambiance make Al Chile Viola one of the best restaurants I've been to. Period.

We stayed in Mal Pais, and this is a ways into Santa Teresa, but it was worth the drive! I had tuna and my husband had Mahi Mahi. Huge portions and cooked perfectly! It was delicious and such a great environment as well.

Great and creative cocktails, fried calamari was wonderful. Hand picked wines paired well with a delicious tuna entrée as well as marlin. Owners Luce and Emiliano could not have been more gracious and we very much enjoyed chatting with them; they made us feel like old friends. Baffled by any negative reviews of this place---it was our favourite in Santa Teresa.

The food is absolutely perfect, from appetizer to dessert: creative, beautiful, delicious. The place is charming and the people... make you feel as family. It is not just the best in Santa Teresa, would be one of the best anywhere.
