Fodor's Review

Ignore the chalkboard menu and let Chef Eyal guide you for what might just be the best meal you’ll have in Costa Rica. The Israeli native (who trained in New York) is confident in the kitchen, but his boastfulness is not unwarranted, as you'll discover with fresh dishes like filet mignon, shrimp risotto, organic Greek chicken, and blackened tuna. Portions are large and can be paired with wines from the impressive cellar. Desserts like the macadamia cheesecake are well

worth it if you manage to save room. Opt for a table on the patio rather than a booth near the U-shaped bar, unless you like boisterous noise with your meal. Note that the restaurant is open only Tuesday through Saturday from 5 pm to 9 pm and credit cards are not accepted.
