Our group decided to get lunch here today. The grounds are very lush and the decor is very artsy. The electricity was out but we still had a nice peaceful lunch listening to the rain hit the corrugated roof. The service was a little slow but we were in no hurry and hey it's Costa Rica. The food came out looking beautiful and we all agreed it was very flavorful. The menu is rather limited and I thought the portions were small but I'm a 6 ft 225 lb guy. I don't recommend eating here if you are looking for a large meal at dinner time. The staff were very friendly and we were able to check out one of the guest cottages. The cottage was very clean and had funky decor. Yes, I would recommend this property for a nice meal or a place to stay. I would give it a 4.5/5 but can't and a 4 is too low so we're going with a 5. Pura Vida!

While the service wasn't the fastest, our server Donald tried to please. He forgot a few things but if you asked he was right there with whatever we asked for. We ate 4 dinners and all were outstanding. Pricing was fair. The garden was very pleasant with great background music.

We arrived and had to wait for 20 mins before we got the menus and the place was not even crowded, the waiter passed by several times wihout asking if we needed anything. The restaurant's atmosphere is very good the food is OK and the service awful so overall a 3 out of 5.
