I stopped by for lunch after horseback riding and was served a delicious Costa Rican meal outdoors by the sparkling clean swimming pool. The light breeze, sun, rustling leaves, and cicadas made me question why I was living in a big city. The manager Jana was also extremely welcoming and even helped me heal my nasty bug bite with some... More

Possibly the best steak of 5 I had in Costa Rica. Matched only by a coffee steak in Jacó My wife had a fresh grilled fish with... More

We were driving in the area, and stopped by for lunch, as the review in the Moon guidebook was positive. We weren't disappointed. Really excellent main courses - and the desert of coffee cake and ice creams was really impressive - visually and to taste ! We were lucky to be able sit outside near the pool for our meal.... More

Every dish is served as a piece of art. Flavory and intensively colorful, the ingredients are magically mix by the chef. Excellent service. We visited Turire after a long hiking trip to Guayabo Arqueological Park. It was a beautiful day. We missed the beautiful display of tropical flower arrangements in the lobby and notice gardens and premises showed some lack... More

The place is really nice, but too expensive for what they offer and small portions. Nothing to envy in the taste. Is located in a nice country part of the zone, near a damp, lots of "green". So the food is Ok. The place is nice.

Can't say enough great things about the food and service at this quaint B+B hotel. The menu never changes so I hear but if it ain't broke why fix it. Enjoy.

Locally sourced, fresh and tasty. The service was outstanding, delivering truck loads of bread rolls to our kids throughout the evening. And, the sugar cane ice-cream is the best dessert we had on our trip to Costa Rica.

By far the most elegant restaurant in Turrialba if you are looking for a place to go for a special occasion, this is the place! The restaurant itself is beautiful, elegant and of a tropical plantation style. The outdoor patio is the nicest place to sit and enjoy your meal. The food is international cuisine and is prepared and served... More
