The Magic at Scala Restaurant in Dominical
AUTHOR: DAGMAR REINHARD
Scala Restaurant & Sibú Café are located at the Escaleras Village. On the Coastal Highway, just a few kilometers South of Dominical or North of Uvita, follow the sign to Escaleras. It offers a gorgeous contour between the jungle and the sea. Village Escaleras is an all-open location with three environments with a cool breeze that blows across the terraces.
It has a hip atmosphere and soothing environment; you feel like relaxing in the midst of the jungle with the ocean showing through the tall trees. The place is so well-liked that most customers come regularly to have an early breakfast or enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner with their family, friends, or business partners.
And again, Chef Marlon and his team surprised us again with their new creations using avant-garde techniques. The “Pappardelle” with Pacific shrimps and Premium tenderloin is just amazing. And if you go in the company of your partner “in crime,” a must-try cocktail should be the absolutely tropical “You and Me,” prepared by barman Diego. The bar is beautifully designed and showcases all kinds of spices that will perk up your taste buds.
Our favorite dessert (we shared various) is owner Mariana’s particular recommendation: a corn flan, creamy, silky, caramelized, and accompanied by organic vanilla gelato, which melts in your mouth. “We love to remember our Latin roots,” she says, “and corn is one of Scala’s favorite ingredients.”
“The restaurant`s team is a big family, working hand in hand inventing, creating with passion, and always optimizing our dishes’ quality and presentation. We ask our diners about their opinion and study their reaction to new flavors.”
Our objective is to maintain the dignity of the product, the protagonists being our fruits and vegetables from small national producers, the meats that are free of hormones and additives. The seafood comes from certified responsible fishing.
If you are planning a corporate dinner, birthday, or conference, the Crystal Room with A/C is ideal. It has a maximum capacity of 25 people and a splendid views over creation.
We had to reinvent ourselves during the last year, focusing entirely on a virtual, 100% interactive presence of our bilingual Ballena Tales Comprehensive Magazine. We are achieving great opening numbers (more than 14,000 in the English versión alone), have breached the borders of Costa Rica, and are read by North Americans and Europeans, and surprisingly, many of my German patriots.
I do care a lot about my health and my family’s health. It is important to me that we all feel our best to manifest our best attitude and ability. Living in Costa Rica, I am surrounded by people who naturally want to feel better, too. We each have our ideas on how we can feel like the best version of ourselves, but they mostly revolve around the following precepts of everyday life in Costa Rica: Growing food, Daily exercise,
Skipping the stress, Raising children in Costa Rica in a simpler way

Everyone Has A Story – In 2012, one of my yoga students invited me to join her for an upcoming retreat she had planned. She was in a difficult position because her “Exercise Person” couldn’t join her, and she wanted me to go to complete her team. I asked her when and where this retreat would be happening. She replied, “Next week, in Costa Rica.”
Much like our summer and winter seasons change, the seasons of big surf also changes. The summer months of hot sunny days are gone for now, and a more wet, stormy, and cooler season brings more gifts. Many refer to this wet season as “the green season.” As a surfer, I refer to it as “ the surf season.”

Rafael Steyners was born in the land of the famous “Guajira Guantanamera”, in the picturesque valley of the city of Guantánamo, located in the Province of Guantánamo south of the Caimán Dormido, the beautiful island of Cuba.
At the age of three, Rafael danced and sang to the sound of a portable radio. His mother smiled when she saw him but she never gave it much importance, since another plan was in the works since then. She would rather see him become a doctor than an artist from stage to stage.
