“Sabor Sabor!!!”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

Me esposa y yo disfrutamos lo mejor plato hemos comido en esta país hasta ahora. Cristina había cocinado dos pescados enteros para nosotros a la perfección! Acompañados con papas fritas receta cacera y una ensalada divina. Muy vale la pena a probarlo!
We enjoyed a very good whole fish dinner with Cristina and her family. We had not tasted any seafood that good during our visit to the Osa peninsula nor in San Jose or certainly not at Montesuma Beach. Do yourself a favor and try it out.

“great dinner!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Our group of 9 people enjoyed a lovely dinner at Restaurant Cristina. Eduardo was a wonderful host, and Cristina's home-cooked meals were delicious! (We had amazing guacamole, the special fish and chicken of the day, and a wonderful panna cotta with passion fruit sauce for dessert.)

Eduardo also took the time to show us around the hotel, which looked simple, but clean and very welcoming.

All in all, a lovely evening!

“Food worth waiting for.”
Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

Christina took our order and went to work making everything we ordered from scratch. It was worth the wait. Salads were so fresh. Fish sauces were wonderful, filled with flavor. Her son (for a small fee) even drove us back to our hotel (Barcelo Resort) to make it back in time for planned excursion.

“Great local flavor!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

The food was fresh and absolutely delicious!! Highly recommended from a true foodie at heart!! I ordered the whole fish and she got the shrimp rice. Can't go wrong with a whole fish and the rice tasted fresh and green.. Both were served with a salad and some potatoes .... You won't be disappointed!!!
