Fodor's Review

The owners of this small place at the north end of the village call their cuisine “California–Costa Rican fusion.” This is the area’s most upscale dining option, but it’s still Tortuguero, so surroundings are pretty simple. You’ll be seated at tables (with tablecloths—not common up here) indoors or on a pleasant terrace overlooking the garden. Start out with an appetizer or ceviche (fish marinated in lemon juice), or plantains in a black-bean dip. Move on to main courses such as chicken breast with apple curry or lobster in ginger-garlic sauce. Finish things off with the sole item on the dessert menu, the volcán, a rich chocolate-espresso cake with fruit and caramel sauce on the side. These folks also operate the Wild Ginger Café, near the center of the village, with a selection of coffees, sundaes, milk shakes, smoothies, and brownies.
