Amidst the honkytonk of Jacó, lovers can find an oasis of tranquility and fine food in the Hotel Poseidon!
The elegant, alfresco lobby restaurant, furnished with custom-made wooden tables topped by floral tablecloths, is softly lit with gas lamps and backed by a sophisticated soundtrack. This is the ideal place for lovers who love to cook.
Chef Patricia Ferguson works in an open kitchen and you can choose a table with a good vantage point to watch her create. For Valentine's Day, the chef recommends starting with sensual Thai Jumbo Prawns, which you can eat with your fingers.
For a main course, sink your teeth into generous chunks of grilled mahi-mahi or tuna bathed in a coconut curry sauce, both accompanied by a salad of mixed tropical greens dressed with an Asian Caesar dressing redolent of sesame.
For dessert, surrender to a plate of meltingly sweet Bananas Foster, big enough for two to share.
Open nightly 6-10pm
Find it on Calle Bohio, 30 meters west of the main street in the center of Jacó. Tel: 643-1642. For hotel information call toll free: 888-643-1242,
