In Costa Rica, wine at restaurants can be very expensive, and to make it affordable, mostly lowquality wines or consummation per glass are offered to the guests.
Christian Vijselaar, owner of Hotel Villas Río Mar, in Dominical, and a wine lover himself, changed the policy for guests at the international restaurant “El Rancho”.
“Though we have an extensive wine list, we are now offering our customers the opportunity to bring their own wine, and it is not just about saving money”, Christian said. “Imagine you want to celebrate a very special event with a very special wine, or you have got a bottle from a particular year you would like to share with your friends.”
Now you can bring your own wine to the El Rancho Restaurant, and without paying corkage fee. A great selection of international dishes and local specialties are on the menu.
So, along with a remarkable meal, you relish your most favorite beverage. The menu also includes tasty appetizers and special dishes for kids and vegetarians. El Rancho Restaurant at Hotel Villas Río Mar is open to the public 365 days a year, from 7 am to 9:30 pm, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The hotel, which is embedded in ample tropical gardens with beautiful exotic plants, flowers, and birds, is a place par excellence to host your birthday, anniversary, graduation, dinner events, or wedding reception. From the hotel, which is at the border of one of Costa Rica´s most stunning rivers, Barú River, a pleasant 10-minute walk through the small and lively town of Dominical takes you to the beach.
The hotel also provides a fully equipped conference room and is the perfect location in the South Pacific for your business meetings. So, rejoice you have found the right place!
