An excellent seven course meal paired with hand selected wines by two of the finest people you will meet in Costa Rica. It is also an excellent setting in their beautiful home.the food was extraordinarily good and the wine pairings were perfect.

Tucked away in a quiet corner of Liberia is a true five star experience. Monique, and Andre tirelessly perfect the craft of culinary artistry. When you arrive here you are treated as family. Starting with a cocktail by the pool, and followed by masterfully decorated shrimp with caviar. Wine pairings to perfectly match, and emphasize each course will have you... More

Don''t know how Trip Advisor rates restaurants, but it must be by the number of reviews, not the quality of food. I know all of the restaurants listed with higher rankings and none can hold a candle to La Mesa.. This small, by reservation only, restaurant serves a seven course meal paired with wines. From the reception drink to the... More

During our first trip to Costa Rica, local expat friends booked this dinner for 6 of us. We're lucky enough to live close to a top dining restaurant in the United States; so, our bar for "unique and wonderful" is pretty high. Monique and Andre did not disappoint. What a treat to meet a couple who obviously cook and host... More

We were aware to have a special dinner and experience, but reality was really over our best expectations. Great dinner, every dish special and served just for us by Andre and Monique, a wonderful couple with a great passion: making their guest very special guests at their nice home. Great experience! To enjoy again, as soon as possible.

Our experience was nothing short of spectacular. The meal was unforgettable, Andre and Monique's hospitality was world class and the setting was absolutely perfect for our intimate 20th wedding anniversary/vow renewal celebration. They made our kids (11 & 16) feel at home and they made us feel incredibly special. They worked hard to accommodate any dietary restrictions we had but... More

My girlfriend and I were visiting Costa Rica for the first time and we always try some fine dining in countries we visit. We were so surprised by the quality and taste of the meal. First of all they don't serve less than four people so we asked Andre to pair us up with another couple if possible. Lo and... More
