The sushi was warm and I'm pretty sure we got sick off of it. Just make sure it feels/smells fresh. We really liked the place, but when you get sick it's really hard to recommend it. Friendly service though!

Hidden on the back of a narrow entrance you we`ll find true delicious fusion cuisine.
Simple, well balanced dishes with fresh local ingredientes. Great rolls, with very creative and unique combinations.
The owner and chef, Alma and her staff provided great food as well as excellent service.
Wine selection could improve as the ambience for an after dinner drink is tempting.
Next time we go to Santa Teresa, we´ll definitely visit and hopefully more wine options will be available.
Cheers,

We originally planned to go to Kika for dinner, however the owner was on vacation and the restaurant was closed - but to our luck Alma was close by and we wondered in. I am so happy we chose this place!
We began with king sized Pisco Sours, served in half litre glasses. Needless to say we only needed 1 drink each - but these were exceptional! Properly mixed, strong, and with fresh fruit and mint. We had the White Fish Ceviche, it was so good! Fresh and flavourful!
We ordered the Pad Thai and the Thai Chicken on rice as our entrees and were not disappointed. Whoever thinks there is not great food in Costa Rica is mistaken as so many chefs are heading there for the fresh food and relaxed lifestyle. Our chef (I think her name was Cassy) was from Chile and was so sweet and happy! We never needed anything, and she even stayed open for us as it looked like she was going to close before we got there around 9.
Highly recommend Alma!

This restaurant was just divine. The food was delicious and as the cafe was set off the roadside you escape the dust for an evening! Lovely family owned business and great friendly staff. A definate must if you are in the area.

We were looking for a place for diner, and looking at the good TripAdvisor reviews, we have decided to go to Restaurante Alma.
Nice atmosphere as you can chat with the chef while she is preparing your sushis :-) Nevertheless, the smell of fried food was very strong and my cloths were smelling badly when we left the place.
As appetizers, we took some maki that were good, but nothing exceptional for me. The passion fruit ceviche was nice.
As main course, we had some fish in Caribbean sauce that was good but definitively too spicy for my boyfriend, as well as the Tuna tataki. Both very very nice for me. Fish was definitively very good and we enjoyed our diner at Alma!
