Enjoy exquisite meals cooked with fresh and organic ingredients while enjoying the view of the Central Valle.
El Tigre Vestido Restaurant and Bar Buho are located in the owners’ former home. Expansive decks and views of the Central Valley and surrounding coffee farms as well as two fireplaces and comfortable couches for relaxing add to the experience.
Each sunny morning you will wake to an exquisite breakfast, replete with freshly brewed organic coffee grown in our plantation and succulent mango, papaya, pineapple and bananas from the Inn’s own organic orchards.
"This small hideaway decorated with local art and enormous fig trees serves up local produce--as in from 50 feet from the kitchens--cooked up with a pan-Latino flavor. One night salad came with chayote, leeks, mixed greens, and a passion fruit vinaigrette, followed by grilled shrimp marinated in ginger and garlic and served with caramelized pineapple and patacones, or green plantain fritters. Cold mango and coconut milk soup was a delicious and refreshing way to end the meal--that and a delicious cup of rich Costa Rican coffee."

"...it is the home-style feasts prepared here nightly that steal the show. They are every bit as spectacular as the setting. The ingredients are fresh and organic, grown either on the property or by a local co-op."

"We ate at a lot of restaurants in Costa Rica (and at home in Washington, D.C.). This one beats them all without a doubt. We did not expect fine dining at all, but we were very pleasantly surprised that every meal was unique and outstanding"

"Exceptional cuisine comes with excellent service to match. Dinner is served with candlelight and soothing classical music, with free-flowing wines poured in generous portions."

"Are there any conceptions you have about Latin food? Throw them out the door when it comes to the flavors of the new Costa Rican cuisine with culinary experiences at Finca Rosa Blanca Coffee Plantation & Inn in the hills overlooking the capital city of San Jose.
Dishes are intricately spiced but so subtly that it's barely discernable where one flavoring drops off and the next begins. Indigenous foods are used to add excitement to traditional favorites."
