Fodor's Review

Step back 150 years into one of Liberia's grandest mansions, complete with an original ceiling painting of cupids, doves, and garlands of flowers. This restored house, with two magnificent dining rooms and a courtyard garden, is home to an upscale café and restaurant. Creative takes on tropical ingredients, all with a French twist, make this the most sophisticated restaurant in town. Loyal customers drive over an hour for the incredibly fresh ceviche with mango and cilantro. Don't miss the Wagyu beef burger, the chicken pesto sandwich, or the fish with chimichurri. Herbs are grown on-site and the organic coffee is perhaps the best you'll taste in Costa Rica. Save room for any of the fabulous desserts, like the classic crème brûlée, flambéed crêpes, or the molten chocolate lava cake made with Belgian chocolate.
