I went to relax many times and always loved it.
I specially like the black pepper tenderloin.
Highest compliments to Graciela, the owner for her outstanding service, her attention to details makes your meal at Relax memorable.
This newer restaurant is slightly outside the center of Cahuita but it worth the 2 minute drive or paying a couple of dollars to go there by cab. We actually came from Puerto Viejo and it was worth the 20 minute drive.
If you want a "relax" ambiance, with better and cleaner facilities, then Restaurant Relax is highly recommended.

Relax was our favorite restaurant even in the old location in Town in Cahuita. The new location is much more in keeping with the name, quiet and relaxing. The hosts are lovely and obviously make an effort to greet each customer personally. We stayed in Puerto Viejo this time but still made the drive to Cahuita three times for dinner. There are many great restaurants in Puerto Viejo as well, but Relax is still our favorite.

While staying in Puerto Viejo with friends, we ate at Relax several times in the space of 10 days. I had eaten at Relax in its old location in central Cahuita about six years ago with the same friends, and I'd have to say that it is even better in its new location! The food is fantastic, the wine list is excellent, and the hospitality that Serafino and Graciela show all their guests is just wonderful. They make sure that you have the tastiest food, the best wine, and whatever you need to make you happy. The fondue chinoise (see previous review for explanantion) is delicious and worth the effort of ordering ahead for a group. Serafino keeps the meat coming! But every item on the menu is fantastic...it is so hard to choose just one that you will want to eat there again and again!

The location just beyond the turnoff to Cahuita on the main highway is a great improvement on the old location in the center of Cahuita. The old location could be rather noisy -- the new location is quiet and serene. Don't be afraid to venture from town to find Relax!

I look forward to returning to Costa Rica and dining at Relax...definitely a highlight of my trips to the area!
