El Sendero Restaurant…All Natural Ingredients:
A phenomenal dining experience presented in a breath taking room, perched on the edge of the cloud forest. The cuisine is a fusion of traditional regional dishes and popular classics from across the country, enhanced by innovative sauces, spices and combinations of fresh herbs and vegetables hand selected from the hotel’s gardens and greenhouses. The enticing meals are thoughtfully prepared with nutritional sensibility and organic ingredients that compliment their exquisite flavours. An extensive wine list and some of the most sumptuous deserts imaginable are yours to savour and enjoy. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served daily and the made-to-order breakfast is always complimentary to hotel guests. The lunch menu features also light menu choices and fresh brewed Costa Rican Coffee drinks that are a favourite of local visitors and vacationing guests alike.
El Sendero Restaurant has it’s own bakery where each day fresh breads and pastries utilise fresh ingredients and family recipes combining local traditions with international favourites offering a variety of delicious menu options. Add their selection of entrées and main dishes created by the chef and his dedicated kitchen staff and no wonder locals will drive several hours just to have a meal on the weekend.
With the capacity to serve up to 70 guests for a wedding, incentive or special event, the hospitality shared by the waiters and their hostess are very personal as if it’s just you and your family over for dinner. You can also choose to dine on the Hacienda corridor, overlooking the vista of the vast Cloud Forest Reserve, or for special occasions in El Selencio dining room overlooking the village casitas and rolling pastures of Finca Julieta own by the family of former Costa Rican president Rodrigo Carazo Odio.
Aqui No Mas Lobby Bar:
Located in the Hacienda, next to El Sendero, is Aqui No Mas, a warm and utterly charming lobby bar where guests can gather to share stories and pictures of the day’s adventures while enjoying great wines, cocktails and non-alcohol beverages as well. Handmade leather sofas and chairs in front of the beautiful stone fireplace help set a most relaxing mood before or after lunch or dinner.
