After hearing from friends about this restaurant, my wife and I decided to stop by late one afternoon to look at a menu and were met by the husband and wife owners Andrea and Paula. Andrea is Italian and Paula a native Costa Rican and together they have traveled the world as professional chefs. They were "over the top" cordial and welcoming in sharing their menu and we decided to make a reservation and come back that evening. They suggested coming back around 5:00 PM to enjoy a beverage on their infinity poolside patio overlooking the Gulf of Papagayo on the Pacific side of Costa Rica and watch the sunset. This in itself would have made the trip worthwhile as the view was "drop dead" gorgeous and unhurried as we watched the sky change from light to deeper shades of red and gradually turn to night fall.
We were then invited into their restaurant, which is beautifully decorated in a fusion of contemporary and Costa Rican, but Five Star in every detail. The menu offers something for everyone. There are some dishes that combine an Asian influence from Andrea's experience as a chef in Thailand as well as classic Italian dishes beginning with appetizers and continuing through the main course. We were offered a choice of a priced fixed offering of four courses or we could order off their menu. I chose the price fixed fish offering and my wife ordered from the menu and we shared as always. I won't go into detail over the food as the only thing that matters is that it is definitely world class dining, Five Star says it all. From beginning to end it was all that a restaurant should be. If you have the good fortune of being able to visit Costa Rica and are in this beautiful part of the country, go to this restaurant, you won't be disappointed!
