This is not the local flavor but is great food. There is something for you if you want pizza, gnocchi, appetizers, etc. The primavera salad was excellent.

Pavones lies around 15 km south of Playa Zancudo and on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Around 400 km south of the capital city San Jose, the best way to get to Pavones is via Golfito, from where you can catch a cab to here. The restaurant is just south of Rio Clara along the coastline.
