Full disclosure, I've known Javier and Paco long before moved to Zipolite and opened the place, but even then I found Javier to be a warm host and Paco a thoughtful master chef. To the great pleasure of many, they translated that energy directly into La Providencia, bringing it to life with rare charm and impeccable cuisine.
Surrounded by the moonlit jungle, the space is an oasis in the night built upon comfort and cuisine, working first to make patrons feel at home, only to ease them into a flawless dining experience, where the open heart and carefree mind can freely absorb every moment of the meal.
The decor is meticulously appointed without being pretentious, highlighted by Javier's paintings, which only enhance the sense that you are walking into someone's home, somewhere that your hosts are eager to share their life's work with you.
The menu is varied and forces a cruel array of options, so it is probably best to go with your gut, make a decision and be comforted in knowing you won't be disappointed.
The fish and seafood is same-day fresh, so if I had to recommend anything, I'd go with that. Over the years, I've never gone wrong or been disappointed. Flavors and textures are balanced and work together without stepping on each other.
The steady sound of laughter and lively conversation is punctuated by the sound of clinking plates and sensual murmurs of approval, a complement to the visual artistry and awesome flavors on one's plate.
The love just shows and shows and shows. Hyperbole, you say? I can't say I don't have some bias here.
