“Gr8 Cerviche”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Recommended by the owners of Pura Vida in Alajuela, this place is awesome. Fantastic meal with warm, friendly service. Alvaro is a great cook. Interesting and unique fushion food (fried plantains & mozerella). Cerviche was gr8 with unusual sauces. Impeccible service, warm atmosphere, super food--what more do you need. Thanks again Alvaro. Pura vida baby.

“The most incredible seafood.”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

We had our last meal out in Costa Rica here and it was a great decision. Without realising it we ended up having 5 courses and had a main each with a fettuccine main to share. This was exquisite. The prawn fettuccine was fantastic and I would highly recommend it in the pomodoro and cream sauce. The chocolate brownie was also amazing and we combined it with passionfruit icecream which was just sublime. I couldnt recommend this place more.

“Pure bliss”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

We went to this restaurant upon recommendation from the nearby bed and breakfast coconut house, where we already heard very good things. We had no idea how good it would actually be. What we experienced surpassed our wildest expectations!

Inconspicuously tucked away from the casual passersby's glance, this restaurant is an oasis for food lovers near and far. We were warmly welcomed personally by the chef, into a contemporary, fresh and very inviting ambience then greeted with a personally presented menu choice, which we could have tailored to our preferences. While our dishes were being prepared, we were surprised by a selection of innovative and perfectly spiced brushette that were a delight to the senses with each bite. Apple and strawberry chutney? Sweet tomato pesto with a dash of spice? This perfectly compiled introduction was setting the tone for a main course that we enjoyed so much that we were at a loss for words! A delight to all senses, with flavors perfectly paired, we were swooning and savoring each and every bite, while smiling from ear to ear!

The cuisine art from this place can easily measure up to the best rated restaurants in big cities worldwide, while offering food in a personal ambience, created with a passion for unforgettable cuisine.

“Super delikate”
Reviewed 7 March 2014 via mobile

We were there cause we were looking for a Soda.
After we came in we were afraid that we can afford but the price we seen on the screen and the bill are not to high !
We had a pork chop and fettuccini salmon. My wife loves the frozen Limonade.

We had a very warm welcome and the owner are very gentle. Even the crew at the kitchen were very friendly.
To all people: go and try out - you will love it !
