Our second time with Monique and Andre and it is still the best dining experience in the area. Monique and Andre make you feel right at home. It's as if you are at your Uncle and Aunt's house, who happen to be excellent chefs. The wine pairings that Andre chose were right on the mark. I highly recommend a visit here if you love good food.

After 4 or five different wines, and a passion fruit cocktail, lost count during this EIGHT course epicurean fantasy. An intimate formal dinner for 6. Our fifth visit Need I say more? This is a very rare and unique find in Guanacaste, Cost Rica. Monique and Andre do all the preparation, cooking and presentation. (Review by member Chane des Rotisseurs, an International fine dinning and wine association).

Our family of four had the wonderful opportunity to spend an evening with Monique and Andre. They welcome you to their beautiful home and are very gracious and inviting. Each course was accompanied with a wonderful wine and Andre took the time to share with us the pairing to the food course. Monique and Andre's presentation of each course was outstanding! The food was excellent! Andre had checked with us prior to our dinner, for food allergies. They recalled this information and were very accommodating. Arriving at their home, we had no idea of what the dinner would include....we were intrigued by the surprise and it made the evening even more enjoyable. The courses were so elegant, you had to try everything. Dinner was about three hours. Andre was very in tuned to ensuring we were not being rushed. The evening was one of the highlights of our Costa Rica trip. Plan ahead as Monique and Andre only open their home up a few days a week, the minimum is four guests. Andre and Monique prepare this special meal for your party only, as your group will be the only ones dining that evening. When we go next time, we hope we can spend more time visiting with Monique and Andre as they are such engaging and interesting people. Thank you Monique and Andre for a VERY memorable experience!!!

It was my third visit at La mesa de Monique y Andre and as ususal it was an unforgetable experience. I had the pleasure to enjoy an entirely new menu and was pleased with all of the courses served on that night. I particularly loved the snails, the veal served with wild mushrooms and the sorbet. As always Andre carefully selected great wines to go with each plate and it was a real pleasure to enjoy this meal in a frendly and very relax environment. Thanks again for eveything. Hopefully we will see you in the near future!

Our friend made all the arrangements for our dinner here with Monique et Andre so it was a complete surprise to have this unforgetable dinner in what would otherwise have been an forgetable night in Liberia, Costa Rica. Monique and Andre welcome you into their home and serve a seven or eight course meal that is excellent by any standard. We had canapes, hor d'oevres, a mushroom soup done in the fashion of a cappacino, wonderful quail, and completed the evening with a great dessert and cafe.
I really must also mention the choice of wines (that are included in the cost) that accompanied each course. Each one was very thoughtfully chosen, but the Rhone served with the Quail was really quite perfect.
I think my greatest takeaway from the evening was how they worked to make the everything flow so seamlessly. More importantly, I think the joy that they received from our satisfaction is why they do what they do. This is something that is extremely rare in the dining world these days, which is another reason why I was so surprised to find it at an overnight stop in Costa Rica. Un grand merci a Monique et Andre!
