“You will think you died and went straight to heaven!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

the hosts are amazing people they make you feel like you are their honoured guest. What to eat was a difficult choice to make, everything looked so good, we were peeking at other tables trying to decide on what to pick.

“Delicious. Unique. Gorgeous.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

Fantastic hillside setting. If you can show up before the sun goes down you'll start your night off right with a killer view of the sunset and valley leading to the ocean.
Super charming Dutch couple running the place.....small, but really charming w/ some indonesian art/ decor. Hans greeted us warmly and explained the menu. It was hard to chose as everything he described sounded super interesting & amazing. We got one fish dinner and one Balinese style. So many unique flavors and mixtures of tastes. It was fantastic.
My wife loved the Chilean wine he recommended and even bought a bottle to take home.
Totally unique meal for southern-ish Costa Rica. Somewhere special to take your gal (or man, or family) for a one of a kind experience. Can't wait to go back.

“We will return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

Been visiting Ojochal for several years and the combinations of flavours here is in all ways isenticing. Slightly pickled cucumbers, beans, the beef rendang, all of it. The green crepes are a must. The hospitality top drawer. It won't disappoint but be prepared to pay a little more.
