Arbol Restaurant was born on the territory of Boutique Hotel Makanda, conceived as an honest restaurant with unbanal cuisine mainly based on fresh local products.
Hotel Area is almost a sacred place and makes its own rules. The interior concept of the restaurant was created by a world famous design group: forest surrounded spacious rooms with amazing views of the ocean and is been developed in the branches of trees. Mix of interior is a contemporary style and the amazing Costa Rican nature creates a very special ambience.
Gastronomic restaurant concept is based on the use of seasonal products from Central Pacific farmers & fishermen and modern culinary techniques. The restaurant offers dishes in which rethought old recipe and familiar tastes are opened in the original textures, forms and combinations.
Chef Ruslan Zakirov, without fear to exaggeration, one of the few young chefs seriously "sick" modern kitchen idea. He boldly experiments and have fun, using -only- local products, besides sometimes drastically transforms the familiar dishes.
Arbol menu is not afraid of interpretation and even small loans from the rich culinary heritage of the world, while remaining faithful to the main principle - to be based on local products and specialties forgotten, and multiplying them to modern technology and the experience of foreign colleagues, to create a new dish.
