La Palapa Restaurant

Guillermo Saenz, alias Memo, is Chef at “La Palapa Restaurant”, Hotel Cuna del Ángel. Chef Memo has a long history as a gastronome, trained in Spain and Italy.
He worked for several years in well-known international restaurants in San José. This allowed him to create an expansive vision of high end-cuisine and legendary dishes fusing with tropical ingredients from Costa Rica.
In 2011, he moved to Costa Ballena to dedicate his expertise to La Palapa Restaurant at the enchanting Cuna del Ángel Hotel. In 2013,

Chef Memo and his team started with a “gluten-free” project to also satisfy celiac guests. For months they researched, tested, and perfected the recipes until also the bread had a consistency that was approved by Don Tom, the owner of the angelic hotel.
And in 2014, the La Palapa Restaurant was declared 100% gluten-free. It was the first of its nature in Costa Rica.
Everybody, big and small, intolerant or not, diners can now choose from a wide range of exquisite international dishes and enjoy a homemade ice cream or a delicate crème brûlée for dessert. All meals are full of flavor and extraordinary quality that you, celiac or not, won´t notice the difference.

The own permaculture Project “Finca Heartsong”, delivers fresh herbs, some hydroponic vegetables, ingredients for the famous “Jungle Salad”, tropical fruit and cacao for desserts and ice cream.
And creative Chef Memo will pamper all your senses, serving 100% gluten-free and gourmet dining with a selected choice of wines and incredible views.

La Palapa Restaurant is open for guests and the general public daily from 6:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
We serve breakfast, lunch, snacks, cocktails, and an exquisite menu for dinner.
