Fodor's Costa Rica 2014
Giardino Tropicale Review
Formerly famous for its wood-oven pizzas, the original pizza maker has moved on and opened his own place (but this restaurant still makes decent, if not spectacular, pizza, and bowls of homemade chili-pepper sauce still grace every table. Beyond pizza, this thatch-roof, multilevel restaurant casts a wide net to include daily fresh seafood and fish specials, such as ravioli stuffed with snook or tuna carpaccio. Sit on one of the upper decks and you'll dine amid the treetops. The downstairs part of the restaurant is quite sophisticated and romantic, with elegant white tablecloths. The owners are also working to make the restaurant ecologically sustainable. Service is always fast and very friendly.
