Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Food was simple but good. Had a nice light lunch and drinks. If you walk through the restaurant there is a small patio out the back with a lovely garden view which is quieter than the front patio on the...street.More

Discovered this wonderful restaurant by accident. Lovely atmosphere and attentive staff. Our food (pasta, bruschetta) was delicious and authentically Italian. We travel often to Italy and one of my husbands's fav dishes in Spaghetti alle Vongole. He ordered it hesitantly. I mean, who could make...that in Costa Rica? It did not disappoint! My salad had a lovely oil/lemon dressing that was perfect. The wine list is very good also, and staff (owners?) were knowledgable and helpful. Sadly, I can't comment on the French food. I hope to try it when I return. Thank you for a lovely afternoon!More

We didn't discover this place until our last day, but I'm really glad we had lunch here. The owners are a very nice young couple, she's French and her husband, who is the chef, is Italian. The place has a nice atmosphere, mostly outdoor seating,...a good drink list, and excellent food. My friend and I both had the seared ahi tuna and it was cooked perfectly. It comes with a nice selection of cooked vegetables and a side salad.More

We went here for Christmas dinner, a several course set menu that was a wonderful mix of French and Italian (as our the couple that runs it, she from Nice and he from Italy). When I asked for a wine that was not on the...list, they immediately had a few suggestions from their private stash! Another great restaurant in Cahuita!More

What a great spot!! We went there for lunch and enjoyed it so much we had to go back for dinner the next day. Clean and romantic. Very friendly. We had the cabri salad and the lunch special (mahi mahi burger). So good. Great fries....Had the same salad and the Chef’s suggestion which was fish with a truffle cream. So tasty. Great service. Looking forward to our next trip to Cahuita.More

Wonderful, authentic meals prepared by chefs who crossed the ocean from Europe and settled in Costa Rica. My husband's pasta was prepared al dente and complemented by savory sauce; fresh and delicious. I enjoyed a beautiful salad with crostini and prawns. Try a crepe for...dessert - large enough to share - we especially enjoyed the chocolate and coconut version.More
