GO TO ABBOCATO. Every single day, Abbocato creates new specials. You can choose between seafood and meat- or have booth if you are feeling lucky. This place is HOME. You feel like you are sitting in your dining room, with decor that is a bit better. Go there dressed up or go there dressed down, it doesn't matter. All they... More

I've been planning a trip for a group of six couples every spring for 15 years. Our concierge recommended Abbocato so I looked it up. I was really concerned. They basically serve two fixed menus each night. With a group that has both allergy issues and picky eaters I was a little hesitant. I'm so glad we decided to eat... More

The Restaurant Beach Club Abbocato offers special menues on reservations only. Most likely the best and most exclusive place to have dinner or lunch in the area. The terrasse offers stunning views of the bay.

It was the perfect time of year to be here. Started the evening with drinks by the pool watching the sun set over the Bahia de Papagayo. Andrea came out while we were watching the sunset and told us about the specials. There is a seafood and a meat tasting menu every night. Everything is locally sourced so it changes... More

What an amazing experience!! Owned by a wonderful couple of chefs! It was so good that we went back again the following day. You must have the 4 course special which is different every day. Definitely will be back when we visit the area.

This was my best meal in Costa Rica. Seriously. It was so good I made reservations to come back each of the remaining days of my stay. No kiding. The night started with watching the sunset from their patio with a drink in hand. There is no better way to start the meal. While on the patio, the chef, Andrea... More
