Here’s your splurge choice, a happy change from typical Costa Rican cooking. The Nuevo Latino cuisine here is based on classic Tico dishes and local ingredients, but with intriguing twists, like tenderloin in chipotle-butter salsa or guava-glazed chicken. Owner and restaurateur Karen Nielsen has created a sophisticated and romantic ambience here, with solid wooden tables and chairs, soft lighting, and cool jazz in the background. Try to grab a seat in front of one of the large arched picture windows overlooking cloud-forest foliage.
