Villa Deevena came highly recommended and it didn't disappoint! The staff was attentive and friendly despite the restaurant filling up within an hour. Live music was very enjoyable and added to the romantic ambience. The food was superb; we focused on fresh local seafood; grilled octopus, grouper, and tuna tartare. They were attentive to gluten-free needs and even had a...

We saved our visit to Villa Deevena for our last evening in Costa Rica. We were only staying around the corner, but wanted to save it for last as we had read such great things about it - everything was true. Its a really nice setup by the pool, everyone working there is so friendly and accommodating. The service was...

A former Michelin star chef fell in love with Costa Rica and decided to move here so he opened a petite but supreme quality restaurant in Los Pargos. The food is simply excellent, service is very nice and welcoming and the atmosphere is cozy. Also, a huge variety of wine is offered. Come here for an unforgettable meal, it is...

I have mixed feeling in writing this review. I almost want to keep the secret of this amazing find to myself, but I can't be so selfish. We visited Villa Deevena for a second time in two years. First time we just came for dinner and it was simply amazing. Patrick is a culinary genius and a true artist. His...

It's tradition that we meet here with our Canadian neighbours, who live an hour away from us in "the great white north!" We met these fellow Canucks down in Junquillal and one of the first things we did together was eat at "Villa Deevena." So, a week ago we met here again! (We still marvel at how a remote, little...

Wonderful food and service. Just fabulous outdoor dinning and ambiance. Did I say the food was fabulous? Went last night for second time in two weeks and it was as good as the first time. Lovely people helping you and very interesting family. We are here for 4 weeks so we will be back at least twice more.

We were in Playa Negra for three nights and ate there twice--both times were exceptional by fine dining standards anywhere in the world. On top of that, Chef Patrick and his family keep a warm and friendly atmosphere that astounds you as they remember you and all your food preferences and quirks from a few nights before. The kitchen under...

Had a fantastic dinner a few days ago at Villa Deevena! A beautiful spot with amazing food! It's a must do if you're in the area. Makes a great end to the day after surf at Avellanas or Negra! I can't wait to go back and even though we don't live too far away, I really want to try to...

I am writing this as a restaurant review. We did not stay there. We've eaten at a lot of really good restaurants in the Boston area, visiting New York, many other US cities, France, Italy, Spain, etc. This place was right up there with the best. Chef and Mrs. Chef are French; spent about 10 years in Venice Beach, CA,...

My family and I took a Padi 3 Day Open Water Course at Scuba Dive Costa Rica, formerly Brindisi in Playa Flamingo. We were recommended by Capt. Mike to dine here. He said,"it's the best restaurant in Costa Rica, and it's not expensive!" Our hotel was at JW Marriot, Guanacaste. It's about 35 mins south in Playa Negra. The short...
