Uvita’s Great Culinary Diversity
Author: Louisa Bayer
Uvita offers more than beautiful beaches, green nature, and great species diversity. The diversity of wildlife and plants is just as significant as its culinary offer. Almost on every street corner, you can find a restaurant where you can satisfy your appetite or this after a relaxing day at the beach or a long hike through nature. There is something for every taste
There is a wide choice here, starting with the local specialities: Especially around the Marino ballena National park entrance in Bahía Uvita, you can take a break in beach bars and restaurants, and they are all classic Costa Rican.
Whether you want to drink a big, fresh smoothie made from regional fruits, end the evening with a cocktail, or are in the mood for an ample portion of local food. I especially like nachos. The street leading to the National Park offers a wide choice, where each restaurant impresses with its unique ambience. The servers also give excellent bilingual service.
There are other local restaurants in the center of Uvita, which differ from the beach bar ambiance. Here you can also find the same food. Fresh smoothies, good cocktails, and fantastic food are guaranteed here. In addition to nachos, quesadillas, and more, you can have a succulent hamburger. One thing is sure: the price-quality ratio is excellent.
In the direction of ojochal, you end up in dreamlike scenery in a beautiful park- like garden surrounded by monkeys and other wild animals who hop through the grass. An insider tip is the delicious crispy fried fish at a beach club a few kilometers south of Uvita. For nothing in the world should you miss this.
Especially recommended here is the red snapper, prepared in an exotic marinade. Another highlight of this place: the pool bar is open. So you can enjoy your food and drink placed on the counter while sitting in the cool water.
If you don’t want to eat regional food, there is a large selection of international restaurants. Especially to be recommended for breakfast is a small French café. On Wednesdays a Saturdays, you can easily combine this with a visit to the farmer’s market. There is a wide variety of food, and the quality is thoroughly enjoyable. Excellent breakfast comes at a price. However, the price is reasonable.
If you feel hungry for sushi in the evening, you have more than one restaurant in Uvita. All delicious prepared sushi and even convinced me as an actual non-sushi eater.
A cozy restaurant for pizza and pasta lover’s and an expansive open terrace is near Steve’s supermarket. The menu here is extensive and offers typical Italian food and local dishes. Often you have to make a reservation or come early to get a table. The servers are amiable but speak only a little or no English, which might make communication difficult.
Overall, the choice of food in Uvita is very considerable and delicious. So far, every restaurant has convinced me with a diverse selection of dishes.
