Guanacaste and the Nicoya Peninsula Restaurants

Seasons by Shlomy

Fodor's Review

At his intimate, pool-side restaurant in the casually chic Hotel Arco Iris, innovative chef Shlomy Koren, Israeli-born and Cordon Bleu–trained, transforms fresh local ingredients into sophisticated Mediterranean-fusion dishes you would pay a small fortune for on the Riviera. Even the bread basket here is enticing: fresh-baked rolls topped with cumin seeds, salty soft focaccia, and a tasty eggy bread with raisins. The snapper cooked in rice paper is so moist, it's almost fluffy; add the savory sun-dried tomato and mushroom sauce, and you are in fish heaven. Sashimi comes doused in ginger-flavored, sizzling sesame oil, and masala chicken is cooked with almonds and sage. Chocolate lovers will long remember Seasons' version of Toblerone—dense chocolate with almond nougat combined with a rich chocolate ganache. Service is swift and attentive and the occasional live jazz adds to the pleasant atmosphere.
