Playa Matapalo Restaurants
Playa Matapalo offers some excellent restaurants!
El Express del Pacifico – also known as ‘Daniel’s’ – which is the name of the German cook that exploits this little restaurant together with his wife Darlenny. Whether you choose something of the Grill, Fish or Pizza; you are sure the dishes are made with extra care. This family operated restaurant is not opened everyday so check beforehand. Only open for dinner.
Matapalo is also home to the best fish restaurant of the area from Quepos to Uvita; El Langosta Feliz is a longtime favorite among both locals and tourists. Not that it is a very fancy restaurant; this Tico operated restaurant just offers excellent seafood dishes and you can be sure it is fresh. Open for lunch and dinner.
The restaurant on walking distance from our B&B is A Kachete! This restaurant & bar offers a great variety of international and local dishes with good value for money. Open for lunch and dinner.
2 new establishments opened December 2018 and both look very promising. Del Mar Rotisserie & Grill offers wood oven Pizza, Wraps, Hamburgers and great Pork Chops. A little outside of Matapalo towards Dominical, El Patio Café & Bar offers more than just coffee and craft beer; they also offer some tasteful light dishes. Both are open for lunch & dinner.
Playa Matapalo also offers some typical local restaurants called ‘soda’s’. This is where you go for typical local food as the famous casado’s.
