We are at the restaurant for breakfast and dinner during our staff and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The staff is friendly and efficient and the food is well prepared.

Stopped because we were looking for a quick stop and the menu looked like it had a wide variety of choices. Surprised by the AMAZING view of the lake and we chose a beautiful table outside to enjoy it! Good food and nice service.

This is a combo hotel and restaurant. The restaurant offers amazing views of the lake and their well manicured garden. The food ranges from breakfast to a medium priced lunch and costlier dinner. The location can't be beat. There is also a beautiful pool and hot tub that can be accessed by restaurant patrons for $8 per person/day. Drinks--even sodas... More

Expensive for what you get but great views of the beautiful lake. Alas you don't have much choice around you.

Dear, 'expensive' is subjective. The Bistro serves only first class, fresh food. Prepared with the best receipts. This is not a cheap 'soda' but a luxury restaurant. with an amazing infrastructure and unbeatable views on the lake and surrounding mountains. Most of our dishes are under the $10: Italian pastas, gourmet salads, delicious sandwiches, quesadillas... More

And the food is wonderful as well with excellent and large salads, pasta , sandwiches and desserts. The cappuccino is great... More

It is a great place to stay . Reasonable off season stays. La Bistro Restaurant has a beautiful view and a great Menu. The chicken sandwich was delicious and large. Salads are great and we love to come for breakfast. It has the best view of the lake anywhere.

Wow! What a view, quite possibly the best view of any restaurant in Costa Rica! And that's saying something, the whole ambience of this place is amazing. The food was excellent I had the spaghetti bolognese which was great and the chicken sandwich was amazing. Please do yourself a favour and stop here you won't be disappointed

If you're in the area, it's worth eating at the restaurant on the outside patio on a clear day for the view, what an amazing location. The food was decent, I'd recommend trying some of the european fare, the costa rican food was not exceptional.

Stopped off for lunch on the way from Monteverde to La Fortuna, and were thrilled by the beautiful views of Lake Arenal as we dined outdoors near the pool. The food and views were so great we came back another day for lunch. The cottages and rooms were very inviting and the lobby, bar, and inside restaurant looked so great... More
