Costa Rica Restaurants
Naturally, this is a huge category to cover with hundreds of notable restaurants throughout the country. We'll be adding dining recommends to each city area listed on the left, so in the near future, check back for more detailed reviews. For the time being, here are some of the best places in the country for dinner.
San Jose: Bacchus is an amazing Italian restarant featuing scrumptuous pizza from a wood burning fireplace and other Italian staples; all prepared and presented wonderfully. Bakea offers a broad, ecclectic menu menu and some amazing deserts. Grano de Orv is one of the most romantic places in the country for dinner - grab the patio seating if eather permits.
Jaco: Some of the best dining options are ten minutes away at the Los Suenos Resort - El Galeon is an open air restaurant overlooking the marina and featuring a seafood menu. Lantera is a wonderful and upscale Italian eatery. Nueva Latino (located at the Marriot) features an international menu and beautiful, quaint atmosthere. La Vista Restaurant, also at the Marriot, is a fabulous buffet and priced accordingly, but they offer everything.
Manuel Antonio/Quepos: El Gran Escape is a very popular, laid-back place just as you arrive into Quepos. They have fresh seafood and one of the best hamburgers in the country. The Sunspot Bar and Grill seems, at first, like a last minute idea for a restaurant thrown together poolside at the Makanda By The Sea resort. However, the resort is amazing and the views unmatched. Coupled with the amazing food and excellent service, this spot is not to be missed.
Tamardino: The Dragonfly Bar & Grill facility is simple, it's cozy and the food is excellent. Like most of the country, the seafood is excellent, yet prepared in a unique fashion regularly thanks to the skills of their chef. La Laguna del Crocodrille is another seafood-focused place. Although the facility is minimalistic, it still has the feel, food and service of a fine dining establishment.
