Cerro Brujo

Top choice mediterranean in Volcán

A gourmet restaurant in a funky country house with garden seating. The chalkboard menu offers just three or four daily options. Gregarious owner-chef Patti Miranda's mouthwatering creations use organic and local ingredients only. Offerings might include a spectacular salad from the garden, a lamb stew to die for, mahi-mahi coated in sesame seeds and, for dessert, tomate de palo sorbet.

It's in the Brisas del Norte district 1km north of Av Central. Grab a taxi there or take the signed turnoff on the main road.
