Of the few restaurants in Esterillos this is the nicest. We had dinner twice and fish was fresh and cooked in a carribean style, vegetables crispy and good. The atmosphere of the hotel is agreeable.

You'd need to book a table months in advance if this restaurant was located in a big city! An elegant, authentic & above all delicious food experience in the heart of a small fishing village in Puntarenas.

The food here is amazing. The fish is so fresh and the mint margaritas are to die for! They make fresh tortilla chips served with salsa. The atmosphere is great for date-night or a group of a few friends.

For over nine years Los Almendros Restaurant has earned an excellent reputation as a favorite dining-out spot for travelers and locals alike. We pride ourselves in always offering up incredibly fresh and tasty treats. Your taste buds will be delighted by the combination of flavors on your plate... Our fresh fish and chicken as well as vegetarian dishes are accompanied with green seasonal salads with homemade balsamic vinaigrette and seasonal fresh sauteed veggies as well as our famous Caribbean Rice and Beans which is cooked with homemade organic coconut milk. We are committed to food sustainability and pride ourselves in using fresh local ingredients in order to provide world fusion flavors. The daily catch is always a good choice and we have many vegetarian options as well. We have an excellent wine list as well as a cocktail bar and full bar menu offering unique and house-created and crafted cocktails. We also have a wide selection of local craft beer on tap and bottled. The atmosphere at Los Almendros is cozy and laid-back with ambient fairy lighting in an outdoor, covered setting. Call for reservations or just stop in. We guarantee you - whether you choose the fresh catch of the day, a vegetarian option, one of our Thai or Caribbean curries, Caribbean style stewed chicken, our famous Peanut or Jerk Sauces, a typical Costa Rican dish, or anything else on the menu - you will not be disappointed. We are located in the heart of Esterillos Oeste, three doors west of the soccer field on the road between Super Sol and the Soccer Field. We are open from 4 pm - 10 pm and are closed on Sundays. We accept all major credit cards as well as cash in US Dollars or local currency (Colones).
