Prior to travel, I thoroughly research vegan restaurants in the city I’m visiting even if I’m solely doing a day trip. There’s nothing worse than exploring a city for hours only to become hungry and realize your unable to find a restaurant that caters to your life style.
All ingredients are organic (coffee, flour and fruits) and support the community by using locally-grown cocoa and spices. They offer vegan and gluten-free options, homemade jams and various super-food seeds. The owners are a lovely couple from Italy who now call Costa Rica home. They take pride in their business and serve up some seriously delicious meals. You can see what others think here. Their outdoor seating consists of a table top and bar stools with a fabulous view of the ocean. If you find yourself in the area, definitely stop by.
The locally sourced Nutella was delish
The best Italian is in… Costa Rica?
(up stairs) with a table top and stools lining the perimeter, overlooking the ocean.
The first night I ordered their Pasta and let me tell you, it was the best I have even experienced and that is coming from some one who has been to Italy. I devoured it before I had a chance to take a photo but if you have the opportunity to visit this restaurant you MUST order the sea food pasta. I was shocked that the best pasta I’ve experienced was in Costa Rica so when I spoke with the server and they mentioned that the owner was from Italy I thought.. ah yes, it all makes sense now haha.. It’s still ironic that I traveled to Costa Rica to experience the best Italian pasta.
The next evening I returned and ordered their tacos which were delish
