Costa Rica


Vegetarian Restaurant, Cocktail Bar and Art Gallery located in the heart of Santa Teresa, on the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica. Once a sleepy little surfing village, Santa Teresa / Mal Pais has over the past years blossomed in to a thriving melting pot of cultures, attracting travelers from all over the world.
With over 30 dishes on our menu inspired by world cuisines, we pride ourselves in offering the best vegetarian food available. We offer a huge selection of unique specialty cocktails, made with fresh cold pressed fruits which are purchased where possible from local farmers. Grab a bottle or two and head to the beach to enjoy sunset cocktails and be sure to head back in the evening to one of the most popular local hangouts in town.
