Went here for a special meal as it is more expensive then other places in Montezuma, however you would expect that being a 5* hotel. We had the romantic dinner with a table down by the beach on our own which was beautiful, as the sun set the candles glowed and the lighting around us made the meal so romantic.... More

One of the most amazing places to see. Very quaint and rustic, but so charming and warm. The staff became family for the 8 days we stayed. It was truly a home away from home. Fantastic food from the restaurant and wonderful service. I really have nothing bad to say about this place. I hope to go back soon!!!

We loved staying at the Ylang Ylang resort and eating at their restaurant. The meals were fresh and tasty and the service was superb. We stayed at the resort for 6 nights and thought we might get tired of the food. Never! Instead, we were planning ahead to try all the tasty dishes and wishing we had more nights to... More

We have stayed at Ylang Ylang on two different occasions and we had great experiences both times. This restaurant is one of the highlights at Ylang Ylang. Even if we were staying somewhere else (which we wouldn't) we would want to come for the restaurant. The staff makes you feel so special and they go all out to make sure... More

Just a 10 minute walk outside of Montezuma down the beach, Ylang Ylang is a hidden gem right on the ocean. If you have any dietary restrictions - vegan, gluten free, raw, allergies etc. - Ylang Ylang is the best! Mostly organic and made with high quality ingredients, their food is superb! As someone who is gluten free, I felt... More

Had a chance to spend an evening at the restaurant with my wife, an interesting place located just off the beach and a few hundred yards from the town. Food was delicious and the dinner atmosphere was incredible, in sight of the beach and the waves, as night came, the gardens light up. A very nice place to get away... More

We went to Montezuma for lunch and we find this beautiful place 15 minutes after a walk in the beach. We have a very good tuna sandwich and a delicious Tuna with rice and mango sauce. They have also a very good wine menu. We are from Chile so we are not so easy at that point. Even thoug, for... More

Hands down, the best food I had anywhere in Costa Rica... Loved it! The Rainbow Salad was my favorite, meal-size salad. And the atmosphere is really special... right on the beach.
