With a rich history of excellence and tradition, the Turrialtico Restaurant
opened to the public in 1968. The founders were visionary seeing the
potential and attractiveness of the valley. They were the bare owners of a
special charisma and character that proved to be enough to make the new
restaurant a success and a special establishment forever in the beautiful
valley of Turrialba.
Today their daughter, Lucrecia and her husband, Hector, carry on their
wonderful tradition. The meals served are Costa Rican, with a personal touch
from the original owners, who maintained and kept the innovative recipes.
These recipes are all held to the same high standards of quality today.
The main dishes contain tasty meat of the region accompanied by the freshest
vegetables, yuca or delicious plantains, without failing to include the
traditional Tayuyas Guanacastecas (corn tortillas) filled with whatever you
Strategically located on a hill above the valley overlooking the town of
Turrialba, this open air restaurant allows you to sit anywhere and still
enjoy the incredible views of the landscape. To the west lays the Turrialba
Volcano, to the South Angostura Lake, fields of sugarcane and coffee with
majestic Talamanca Mountain Range in the background, and to the east and the
north more coffee farms and mountains. (The views are truly unforgettable).
Nights in the Turrialtico restaurant are just as beautiful and enjoyable for
our visitors because as the sun sets thousands of lights come on throughout
the valley. Come and experience the beauty for yourself, our Lodge is very
welcoming and we would like to invite you to feel like a king...
