I enjoyed a stay at the Balmoral, and the breakfast buffet is included in many reservations. It's extensive, with local fruits and pastries, a varied selection of juices, and a hot serving station. Trays included scrambled eggs, rice and beans, roasted potatoes and a variety of items which changed daily... sometimes empenadas, often plantains, and assorted meat offerings. Omelets and eggs were cooked to order, and of course the coffee was excellent Costa Rican Arabica. Excellent start to the day in a beautiful garden atmosphere.

This restaurant is right on the main "walk" so it is rather "touristy" but the food was good and the prices were reasonable. We both had the sea bass which was a little dry but a nice portion with a side and salad included.
