Villa Romana is my go-to restaurant in Pedasí. Off the beat and track and nestled on the ocean, the fifteen-minute drive out of the city center is more than worth it. Fresh fruit, homemade omelettes and piping hot coffee for breakfast while you watch the waves roll in and head upstairs for a quick nap in a hammock; watching Romulo filet fish in the kitchen for lunch; the soothing sounds of samba-canção and a caipirinha late afternoon; candle-light dinner on the terrace with an exquisitely fresh gourmet three-course meal: it´s divine. The hospitality of Hans and Andrea and their local staff is also worth mentioning: their personalized attention to service and your dining experience in this Tuscan inspired yet tropical villa backdrop allow for complete relaxation. I can´t wait to go back.
