Thanks for your awesome review, Nick. Our location in the jungle is one of the most special parts of the restaurant, so we're happy to hear you enjoyed the natural setting...and the food, of course. Come back soon!

The menu is a little limited. I don't like spicy foods, or rather they don't like me. My husband and I ordered the barbeque pork sandwich with cabbage slaw topped with fruits and yucca chips. The meal was tasty and enough for me. My husband...More

Thanks so much for your thoughtful review. Due to our remote location, limited access to ingredients and general volume of the restaurant, we do have a limited menu that we try to mix up with specials throughout the year. We prefer to offer fewer options,...More

The view on the ocean is really nice especially at the sunset. The food at the restaurant is really good and the home made bread fantastic. A little bit expensive. The owners are really friendly.

The food was great, not Costarican, more like American fusion with elements of East Europe, since the family owner comes from there. Seafood is extremely fresh.

Description
The Restaurant at Brovilla Resort Hotel is an open-air, poolside dining option with brilliant views of the Pacific Ocean and the surrounding coasting jungle. The entrance is off the main road, between the towns of Ostional and San Juanillo in Guanacaste, Costa Rica. Open Monday-Saturday, 12-7pm. We specialize in fish and seafood, twists on local fare and making almost everything from scratch. We offer homemade bread from our wood-fire oven and PIZZA NIGHTS every Tuesday and Wednesday from 4-7pm. Brovilla is at the edge of the Ostional National Wildlife Refuge, just minutes from nesting sea turtles and excellent surfing at Playa Ostional and about 8 miles north of Nosara. Check our website for more information.
