Fantastic cuisine cooked by Michelin starred Chef Patrick from Paris who also served many Presidents at the Whitehouse. Family run with impeccable service. It is a wonderful surprise at the end of a dirt road. Lovely Villas also for booking surrounding a nice swimming pool. Very quaint and romantic. White table cloth and dishes that are beyond the expected. Still thinking about some of the dishes I had. Tantalizing! Reservations recommended!!!

A fabulous retreat away from the crowds on a private road. A small hotel with back home charm. We were warmly greeted by caring people who helped us to our room which is large and basic. This family owned and run boutique hotel is a find if 5 stars is not on your agenda. The dinner was wonderful and served by JOYIA. A wonderful menu with many choices

As stated in previous reviews, the food and service is the best we've ever had!
Driving past the entrance to it you would never know that such an amazing & tranquil place exists. The chef is world known and such a humble gentleman. Everything about this place deserves the highest rating! If you are anywhere within an hour drive of this restaurant, it is a must! While waiting for your food ask to see the chef's very impressive photo album.

The BEST food EVER! Holy cow what a find. Who would think a 5 star restaurant down a dirt road. It is worth the drive from anywhere in Costa Rica. Do NOT miss this place on your vacation. We have eaten all over the world and this was easily the best ever. And the prices were more than fair. Service impeccable. And no need to dress up.

We sat at the bar, just the two of us, early in the evening, just before the New Years rush and only had starters as the food it pricey, it was excellent and plenty of it, didn't need anymore. It was very relaxing, the staff where very polite and professional. Thank you.
