Silvestre is widely known as one of the best restaurants in Costa Rica. Don't miss an opportunity to dine here. Their 3 course lunch menu is an amazing way to enjoy quality food and be surprised by the creative of the chef. Wine pairings amplify the amazing flavours of the meals prepared. For that special dinner, try their 6 plates of contemporary Costa Rican food with a twist. Ingredients are sourced from small organic farms and producers around Costa Rica.


Rice, vegetables, black beans, and fruit (especially plantain) are the main ingredients of Costa Rica's gastronomy. As it is common in Central America, you will find a healthy and delicious variety of dishes. The city centre is filled with a good amount of small cafes, cozy restaurants, and lovely eateries where you can have a taste of the country's mouth-watering cuisine.
