Z Gastro Bar is an adventure in Costa Rican gastronomy, a culinary exploration of great dishes artfully presented. The food is almost too beautiful to eat, but it’s the taste that will transport you. Located in the splendid Marina Pez Vela in Quepos. Z just might be the seaside dining experience of your life.
