"I want to give Costa Rican Cuisine the nobility it deserves by combining techniques and quality local products. Each dish has a unique contrast and balance between textures and flavors."
El Silencio’s Las Ventanas Restaurant pampers gastronomes with local flavors and carefully selected ingredients from our own organic mini-farm. Framed by floor-to-ceiling windows, breakfast and lunch are particularly enjoyed thanks to a soothing view of the forest. While a fireplace and candle-lit tables create a warm and inviting dinner ambiance. It’s the perfect place to relax, reflect on your day and take part in a joyful celebration of Costa Rica’s culinary traditions.

With almost 200 hectares of rainforest, El Silencio Lodge & Spa establishes a biological corridor between Costa Rica’s Juan Castro Blanco and Poas Volcano National Parks. For the owner Karin Zürcher, an uninterrupted terrain was paramount, allowing the cloud forest’s flora and fauna to thrive and enchant visitors.
In addition, the ingredients he uses in his kitchen are homegrown on site. 90% of the vegetables and 60% of the fruits served to guests come from the estancias’s 1,000m² organic kitchen garden. There's a plentiful supply of other organic produce too: breakfast omelets are made with fresh eggs from the estate's hens; milk is delivered by Margarita, the hotel’s resident cow; cheeses are prepared by artisans from the neighboring area.
