Eat and Drink

Run by its owners, Las Piedras has been one of Mal País and Santa Teresa’s favorite and most recommended restaurants for over 10 years. It is an archetype of true Argentinian grilling fused with typical Costa Rican dishes catering to every palate.
A varied and comprehensive menu offers plenty of reasonably priced dishes for children, vegetarians and meat lovers alike. Different kinds of pasta, casados, rice, soup, fish, seafood, salads and sandwiches attract tourists and locals every season.
The specialty is, undoubtedly, the wood fire grill which, through slow and careful cooking, produces tender and favorful results. Beef, pork, chicken, fish, vegetables and the famous mixed grill are seasoned modestly to enhance their flavor. And, naturally, the classic Chimichurri sauce accompanies every dish.

Restaurant Nectar at Hotel Florblanca is laid back and elegant; an indoor/outdoor hangout for guests and locals wanting to dine, celebrate, or enjoy after a day at the beach.

The kitchen serves up fusion cuisine with Latin, Mediterranean and Asian influences. The menu is built around seasonal ingredients with an emphasis on organic local produce, fresh seafood from the surrounding waters, and traditional favorites. From sushi to fish tacos, from salads to chocolate soufflé, our menu is varied and creative.

Our wine selection focuses on exciting South American varietals, but also offers vintages from around the globe. Our friendly bar will create an original and exotic tropical cocktail or simply recreate your favorite drink.

In addition to the restaurant, you may dine poolside, beachside, the bar, or the poolside palapa.
