We loved this place! Only found it on the last night after staying in a resort in Este. It is not an easy drive at night but well worth it! Drinks and food were the best in the area and had an authentic beach snack feel.

Every time visit, Los Almendros is our first stop on our first night, and our last meal, on our last night....and several times in between. Karen, the owner, is a friendly and gracious hostess, who makes a point of welcoming her guests by name. Her staff is attentive and outstanding. Last, but certainly not least, the food is the main...

My boyfriend and I went here for his birthday dinner. I had awesome tuna stir fry. Lots of delicious vegetables and perfectly seared, sushi grade tuna on top! My boyfriend had the jerk pork chop. The jerk sauce was fabulous! We went back 2 nights later & they were out of pork chops. That was a little disappointing. We will... More

Probably the best place in an area of few options. We had chicken and fish tacos to go and they were fairly tasty. Service was nice and portions were plentiful.

Description
For over eight years Los Almendros Restaurant has earned an excellent reputation as a favorite dining-out spot for travelers and locals alike. We pride ourselves in always offering up incredibly fresh and tasty treats. Your taste buds will be delighted by the combination of flavors on your plate... Our fresh fish and chicken as well as vegetarian dishes are accompanied with green seasonal salads with homemade balsamic vinaigrette and seasonal fresh sauteed veggies as well as our famous Rice and Beans which is cooked with homemade coconut milk. We are committed to food sustainability and pride ourselves in using fresh local ingredients in order to provide world fusion flavors. The daily catch is always a good choice and we have many vegetarian options as well. We have an excellent wine list as well as a cocktail bar and full bar menu offering delights such as fresh-homemade fruit infusions and tropical unique cocktails. The atmosphere at Los Almendros is cozy and laid-back with ambient fairy lighting in an outdoor, covered setting. Call for reservations or just stop in. We guarantee you - whether you choose the fresh catch of the day, a vegetarian option, one of our Thai or Caribbean curries, Caribbean style stewed chicken, our famous Peanut or Jerk Sauces, a typical Costa Rican dish, or anything else on the menu - you will not be disappointed. We are located in the heart of Esterillos Oeste, three doors west of the soccer field on the road between Super Sol and the Soccer Field. We are open from 4 pm - 10 pm and are closed on Sundays. We accept all major credit cards as well as cash in US Dollars or local currency (Colones).
