Top 10 Fun Restaurants of Costa Rica

Destination(s): San Jose

Costa Rica offers a cosmopolitan array of restaurants to choose from, so expect dining out to be an adventure in taste, atmosphere and scenery. Whether local or international, most of the cuisine you will find in Costa Rica is served in breathtaking locations that will compliment your food better than any extra spices.

Try the open air veranda at Cafe Mundo to get a taste of the local bohemian art scene or go for the award winning Michelin cuisine at Park Cafe for two contrasting experiences. Another one not to miss is La Yunta Steakhouse, where the huge portions of meat cooked to perfection will probably keep you seated long after dinner to admire the view of the ocean.

Some of the best wine lists are to be found at the elegant Jurgen's, the stylish Donde Carlos or at the good old Italian La Piazzetta. Whatever your choice, you are in for some memorable culinary experiences in these Costa Rica restaurants. read more about Top 10 Fun Restaurants of Costa Rica
