Lonely Planet review
Once a working hacienda and nature reserve, this elegant restaurant is 4.5km north of Cañas on the Interamericana and is now part of a private hotel for researchers, and the odd tourist. Many of the ingredients are grown right here on experimental organic plots, including the only large-scale organic rice cultivation site in the country. The result are tipica meals, prepared and presented with taste and grace. Its rooms (doubles US$90) are quite lovely too.
