The Sugar Beach restaurant sits just high enough above the idyllic Playa Pan de Azúcar for a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. Here you can enjoy Costa Rican comfort food or our lighter fare prepared with locally sourced tropical fruits and vegetables. Our daily specials feature a fresh catch of the day. You can also count on classic beach favorites like our homemade guacamole with fresh tortilla chips or a burger and frosty margarita. Like the reliably spectacular sunset, you can count on finding something perfectly delicious for everyone in your party.

Breakfast is included for our guests, served a la carte from 7 am to 10 am daily. We’re also open to visitors for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Reservations are not required, though we recommend contacting us if you plan to visit the restaurant. Sugar Beach is a popular destination for private weddings and retreats.
