Dining with Mario and Ericka was one of the top experiences of our trip to Playa Hermosa. They're a fantastic couple who open their home, kitchen, and knowledge to new friends while offering an outstanding meal and excellent conversation. They're a couple with many children (5?) who moved from the city to raise their family in a better environment. Their commitment to the meal and the country is outstanding. Every course was outstanding. No, this isn't fine dining, but it is not labeled as such. The experience is more like heading to a friends home for a dinner. The papaya and ginger soup was outstanding- wish I could have figured out what the base was, feels like cream, but its tough since the texture is so perfect. We also had a needlefish cake, snapper ceviche, shrimp and tapanade, costa rican mashed potatoes, grouper in blackberry % wine reduction, and a sorbet dessert. Mario is a top notch chef. Don't miss a meal with them. As far as finding them, count from Condovac to the third official entry for Playa Hermosa (defined by the yellow cross bars) and follow the road at the last entry with a slight bend to the right and a slight uphill left afterwards.
