Our chef, Sebastian La Rocca is passionate about sensory cuisine. La Rocca’s vision was to conceive a unique menu that converges Costa Rican typical food and exquisite, contemporary dishes.

If you want to experience the blend of international cuisine and local flavors, you should try our Worcestershire Glazed Short Rib accompanied with Apple-Jalapeño Puree and RoseMary BreadCrumbs. Another dish recommended by our chef is the Pan Fried Mahi Mahi with Spiced Beetroot Puree and Horseradish.
