I read reviews that this was a 5 star but unfortunately we did not get to eat here. We traveled a long ways to eat here but when we got there the sign said closed. No sign saying if they were going to reopen.

After 200m we found a chain across the unmade track with a hand-painted sign saying CLOSED. The sign could have been put on the mainroad entrance to save us the walk

Stayed at Nayara, but were unimpressed with on-site restaurants. Highly recommend taking cab to Benedictus ... order the steak and the ceviche.

Description
Benedictus is located in a volcano slope with a unique view of the valley o La Palma de la Fortuna and Monterrey.The restaurant its a beautiful wood building surrounded by pasture land and primary forest overlooking the valley.The lamb, cattle, pork and chicken we serve are breaded free range in the farm and we bring the vegetables from Tapezco a little town two hours away from Fortuna, where Mr. Juan Jose Paniagua, a Pioner in the organic agriculture in Costa Rica, produce the best organic vegetables. We are 800 metros away of the main road that link La Fortuna with the Arenal Lake. The gate its just in Front of the Volcano Lodge Hotel.
