Open to the public, this casual restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinks from an eclectic menu with several veg-friendly options and an emphasis on fresh local ingredients. There's a thriving herb garden at the entrance and all tables have views of the forested hillside and occasional monkey sightings. Prices are moderate and service is quick and friendly. On the beachfront, the Onda Buena stand sells home made ice pops from local sources in tamarind, lime, avocado, watermelon, and hibiscus.
