We were staying in Quepos and decided to go for a drive and try a new restaurant. The Hotel Cuna del Angel and Las Palapa Restaurant is about a 40 minute drive from Quepos and the road was almost entirely paved. We went for lunch and found the place delightful. The service was wonderful and the food was amazing. I had a spinach, bacon and mushroom salad which was just the perfect size for a started and then the most delightful fresh tomato soup with shrimp! My husband had the escargot which were the best we had tasted anywhere in the world and then he ordered the steak in Jalapeño sauce which was cooked to perfection. Both the owner and the manager stopped by our table to ask how our meal was and I was delighted to learn that the chef was local. I expected him to be recently arrived from a France.
The hotel itself was beautiful and I thought it would be the most wonderfully place for a quiet get away or honeymoon. Next time I think we will stay there in hopes of more delightful meals!

I've been in this restaurant a few times now, and I'll probably will go there again, because I like the beautiful details of the hotel and the restaurant, it's something nice to show to my customers.
But they have to change one thing....the qualty of the pastas.
In general the starters are nice, the main dishes also, and the creme brulee is fantastic, but the pastas are not good enough. I like them al dente, but they are just cooked too long. Me as a pasta lover......I'm sorry, but I think it's important.
You'll see me again, and we'll see how the pasta is next time.

This is by far the best restaurant in the entire Dominical area. The food is incredible. The service is top notch. The owners are onsite with their small hotel. If the owner's recommend something just eat it. This restaurant is as good as any 5 star place in the States except that the price is Costa Rican. The best food that we have had in years. The passion fruit pie was amazing.

We stayed near this Hotel and Restaurant for 4 weeks. After sampling many restaurants nearby, this became our favorite.
Food was always tastefully prepared. Service was always top notch and prices were reasonable. Dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine, taxes and service included - under $50.
The access road to the restaurant was paved - not common - which made for a pleasant drive there and back.
