From our covered dining terrace high atop the villa, yet within earshot of the sea, a majestic view unfolds onto Manuel Antonio Bay. Monkeys titter and parrots squawk – the rainforest’s version of a dinner bell. At Villa Punto de Vista, we consider fine dining to be an integral part of any vacation, and your meals are a sensory experience like no other. A relaxing getaway means vacationing your way. Whether it’s a private chef catering to the unique desires of your wedding group, your butler reserving a wonderful local restaurant, or a casual evening of ordering in or firing up the grill, Villa Punto de Vista offers you flexibility and a variety of quality dining options and experiences.
Chefs & Dining
Your Dining Experience
Every morning, enjoy a handmade, gourmet breakfast that is complementary with your stay. It begins with the aroma of some of the world’s finest coffee, delicious tropical juices, and sweet seasonal fruits picked from only a few valleys away.
Your daily gourmet breakfast is lovingly prepared by Yessenia, our onsite – and always smiling – cook. Breakfast is served at your leisure and features a blend of both International and Costa Rican morning favorites, including eggs to order and an assortment of freshly baked breads, cereals and some of Yessenia’s inspired morning creations.
We only use the freshest and tastiest local ingredients. Add to all this, Punto de Vista’s signature tropical champagne mimosas and a breathtaking ocean view – really, it’s the best way to start the day.
From casual dining to plated five-course meals, indulge your palate in the best of Costa Rica: from mahi-mahi straight off the boat and dry-aged prime beef, to exotic fruits and organic produce. Your optional private chefs use only the freshest and tastiest locally-sourced ingredients. Your pre-arrival concierge will gladly assist in recommending a quality private chef for the entirety of your stay, or for a single memorable celebration.
