Wonderful setting for a wonderful meal. Staff was very helpful and view was delightful. Get a table under the "roof" in case of showers, which some other guests experienced.

This restaurant is just beautiful! We could see the ocean as well as a gorgeous infinity swimming pool. At a breakfast buffet, we watched a family of monkeys come close, and the staff had to shoo them off. They were hilarious. Food was good too!

Weary from walking in the heat,we stumbled into Karola's and were rewarded with an amazing staff,the best tuna steak I have ever had and an incredible view filled with eagles and toucans. We have since gone back every day for a meal and are never disappointed. Tucked away a few meters off the main road at Los Altos hotel, you'll... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch. Wife had tuna, I had rice salad. Waiter was prompt, polite and kind. Made sure his recommendation was good by ensuring the chef had fresh tuna, and encouraged us to walk the grounds. Apparently monkeys frequent the place but we were let down....damn nature ;)

Good service, great food. Fresh fish dishes - had the coconut sauce fish - to die for! We had a cheese cake for dessert and it was yummy! Waiter was very nice, spoke great English and was patient with my grandson who tried to order in Spanish. Lovely view of ocean and tropical forest.

This restaurant is beautiful. A tranquil, spacious, open air atmosphere is a nice change from the loud, cramped and packed cafes and bars on the main road. There is a view of the pool, jungle and ocean bellow. There is a well put together menu with just enough variety. I had a tuna steak. I’m picky about it being seared... More

This restaurant is at Los Altos hotel, the hotel where we stayed. We ate here the first night and were happy with food and service. I was pleasantly surprised by the creative presentation and flavorful tuna tartare and ceviche. To be honest, I don't remember the two other dishes .. oops
