The Best Food in The Pacific


La Foresta invites guests to a creative menu of international and local influences within an awe-inspiring open air setting. With fresh menu items and ingredients, our restaurant is a wonderful experience, not to be missed. We strongly believe that great meals start with great ingredients. We buy most of our food locally and whenever possible organically We only use local grass-fed beef, hormone free chicken and buy seafood from Costa Rican fisheries that fish responsibly and avoid endangered species. We are privileged to live in a country where tropical fruits and vegetables grow abundantly year-round. We invite you to join us for some great meals surrounded by the rainforest. We do also offer a great variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes.

La Lantana Restaurant

La Lantana —which is a genus of around 194 flowering plant species that are native to the tropical Americas— has an open air, covered interior dining area and outdoor seating next to the pool. Complimentary a la carte breakfast is served here including fresh tropical fruits, homemade granola, freshly baked pastry and breads, eggs, pancakes and of course, organic Costa Rican coffee. Schedules: from 06:00 am to 10:00 am.

The dinner menu has a focus on locally caught seafood, fresh greens and vegetables as well as international gourmet food and local Costa Rican dishes with a special touch. Gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options are available upon request. Schedules: from 06:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

Our Sports Bar is a great gathering spot for guests to enjoy an afternoon drink before dinner. Our bar has all the offerings you would expect—an extensive wine selection, mixed drinks and craft beers—along with Costa Rican specialties such as:

  • Guaro Mojito: prepared with aguardiente, a typical Costa Rican liquor made with sugarcane.
  • Tico Sour: made with local guara cacique, a local sugarcane liquor.
  • Chile Guaro: made with local guaro cacique, the famous Lizano sauce lemon drops and tabasco.

So pull up a stool and get to know our local bartender. By the end of your stay, he’ll know your name and maybe even your favorite drink.

Schedules: from 10:00 am to 06:00 pm.
*Gluten-free options available
