Fodor's Expert Review De Lucía

$$$ Monteverde Cloud Forest and Santa Elena Eclectic

Cordial Chilean owner José Belmar is the walking, talking (in five languages) menu here, and he's always on hand to chat with guests. The handsome wooden restaurant with red mahogany tables is given a distinct South American flavor by an array of Andean tapestries and ceramics. Entrées include sea bass with garlic sauce and orange chicken served with grilled vegetables and fried plantains. They also boast tasty vegetable lasagna and the best hamburgers in town, which you can wash down with a frosted mug of craft beer. An excellent dessert choice is tres leches (three milks), a richer-than-rich cake.
