Bad service - the seemed to be totaly overpowerd by the no. of guests, they kept forgeting us and brought us the wrong stuff.
But, they where quite friendly.
Food was okay, mediterranean. Prices are upscale (for CR).

But, would go there agian, since it was very romantic and nice to sit next to the great invinity pool (ask for it, when making a reservation).
Need to have a reservation.

Loved both our meals, prepared with love and care. The fish had amazing and interesting spices, filet Mignone perfectly cooked, Greek Salad light and full of flavor...the view is incomparable, the service was the best in Costa Rica! Thank you again, Carlos and Jose, Russell and Scott.

I went with 5 people and we waited at the bar while we had a drink. My favorite was the Tuna Tostada Appetizer. I also had the seafood pasta and it was excellent as well.

We went to Azul for the 1st time and had a great dinning experience. The food was delicious and Scott and Russel are great host. The pita bread to start was prepared perfectly and the salad and main course was equally well prepared. We will definitely be back soon.

My 2 friends and I went to Azul for sunset cocktails and dinner. We sat with our drinks by the edge of the infinity pool, gazing and snapping photos of the breathtaking sunset over the pacific! Such colours! The dining room is a beautiful, cozy room with lots of open windows and 5-6 tables for 4. For starters I ordered Mediterranean bread and one of my friends ordered the fish soup. Then we were brought a complimentary dish of Chef Russell's signature hummus, pita, and roast whole chickpeas. All 3 dishes were delicious! For entrees, 2 of us had Moroccan Chicken, and 1 had the Fish of the day, Mahi Mahi. A nice glass of Pinot Grigio completed the choices and we enjoyed our meals while the breezes carried scents of the tropical rainforest in through the windows. To finish, Scott brought us all a chilled glass of iced Lemoncello .

The whole experience was magical! But not just because of the beautiful setting, the awesome sunset, or our exquisitely-prepared meals......because of the warm, attentive hospitality shown to us by our waiter Jose, Chef Russell, and Manager Scott. I highly recommend Azul for anyone wanting a quiet, elegant, and memorable evening. Reservations required. You WON'T
be disappointed !
