Jardin Del Angel in Punta Uva - Pura Vida!

5 Posted on 02 / 19 / 2011

On the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, six miles south of Puerto Viejo in an area called Punta Uva, there is a wonderful cafe called Jardin del Angel. And as the name implies, it is absolutely just that. Angel Garden. In a comfortable, shaded, open air setting in the midst of a lush tropical garden. Jean Pierre, owner and chef prepares absolutely soul warming food with the utmost important ingredient... love.

Morning meals are terrific traditional Tico, or you can please your palate with a yummy European style breakfast. Jean Pierre is also a master creator of incredible baked goods and pastries. We started our day, with a slice of lemon cake with yogurt cream, along with an exceptional fresh ground and brewed cup of coffee. It was pure bliss.
The fresh fruit juices are absolutely amazing. The noni lemon juice was my favorite. You can enjoy watermelon, papaya, mango, banana, and cantaloupe juices... or you can combine the tropical lushness and make your own drink to guzzle gulp the goodness.

Lunch and Dinner are new and exciting creations every day! The main courses were delightful and the sides were just amazing! We are talking hand made gnocchi, thai style noodles with fresh vegetables, comforting lentil dal with creamy buckwheat, salads and sides that are so thought out and full of ingredients we were bursting with happiness!

Everything is freshly prepared per order and is created with the utmost integrity and care. Being vegetarian, we were in heaven as we fueled our minds and spirits with this wonderfully energizing and fabulous food.

We absolutely experienced 'Pura Vida'as we dined and bonded with Jean Pierre and his awesome assistant Yoleny, at the angelic cafe called Jardin del Angel. Experience the goodness.

Pros: Prepared Fresh!, Vibrant & Energizing, Exceptional care

DELICIOUS!

We saw this on the way to Punta Uva (beautiful beach, BTW) and went back for lunch. They have about 5 main dishes available depending on what they've made. We were so lucky to score ratatouille with gnocchi (had cheese in it) and chickpeas with yucca cakes (like potato cakes). In addition, they brought us a small vinegar salad to start with cucumbers, carrots, and cabbage (I think), and they also gave us a bowl of stewed lentils as a side. The main dishes were divine. The nuances of spices were a delicious combination and the starches were the perfect complement to the flavorful dishes. We also had the chocolate and brownie that they make in house. Yummy! Highly recommend. There were a few sugar ants on the table, but that is common in the area.

Pros: delicious food, extra sides, large portions
Cons: sugar ants
