Our night out to eat at Azul was one of my favorites from our trip to Costa Rica. We were blown away by the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the ocean and began our night watching the sunset with drinks in hand. We also loved how beautifully the restaurant and lobby were decorated. Everything we got for dinner that night was... More

First, let me start off by saying that the two young gentlemen that served us were outstanding, but that's where anything good ended. The prices were ridiculous. C'mon folks, you're a restaurant up a hillside on a dirt road in Costa Rica, not Manhattan. Started off with a Greek Salad and Bruschetta, boring and tasteless. Main courses arrived, lukewarm, and...

If you can get by the aloofness of the staff, you will be treated to the most amazing view of the sun as it sets over the Pacific Ocean.

The view is amazing. Watched the sun set from the large patio, dining area. They have cocktail and a decent wine list. Limited menu, but had enough variety and would make a special meal for vegetarians. Enjoyed the fresh tuna, gazpacho soup, and flan desert. Music was to techno for the 60ish group of Canadians and myself. Asked for a... More

First off, the staff are some of the most attentive in Ojochal. The general manager, Scott, noticed my drink was low, as he asked me if I needed another however my server, (who was extremely professional, polite, and friendly) Daniella was behind him ready with another. The food, I had the Moroccon chicken and it was absolutely delicious! When you... More

What a view. Stunning. Attention to detail. Love the local staff. Good mixologist on hand. Very relaxing place. Enjoyed the sunset a popular spot. This is a must see place.

These guys are trying, and I give them that. Food wasn't bad, either, but they're charging fine dining prices (meal for 4 with 2 bottles of wine was $250), and the food simply doesn't live up to that. I'd go have a drink and maybe some appetizers to soak in the beautiful building and views, but wouldn't go all in... More

A first class experience all the way. The service is top noch and the chicken parmasion was right on point. I love this place and Scott... More
