You might try the tasty Italian meals at Restaurante Macondo (tel. 2776-0157) or Alberto’s Puerta Negra ★ (tel. 2776-0181). If you want basic Tico fare and some local company, head to Bar Sussy (tel. 2776-0107) or Soda Katherine (tel. 2776-0124). For a good breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or perhaps just a midday ice-cream treat, check out the open-air restaurant Playa Cacao ★ (tel. 8886-8362), which serves excellent freshly caught seafood and also runs kayak tours.

Finally, for some refined dining or a special occasion, head to the Zancudo Lodge.
