Never had a bad meal here. Country French cooking at it's best. Amazing dishes, great wine list all in a beautiful rustic setting. Doesn't get any better than this.

There's not many options for dinner around town unless you want to eat a hotel restaurant... we stumbled across Colbert and glad we went in. Cute, quaint ambiance. Food was delicious. I enjoyed every bite and slurp of the onion soup, and used complimentary bread to soak up the rest of the juice and onions. The complimentary bread was ok,... More

We happened on this quaint French Restaurant while exploring the countryside of Costa Rica. We found it because they maintain a geocache on their property! Everything on the menu had a French base, but there were lots of options for lighter lunches. The bread was delicious, as were the desserts. The portions weren't huge, but that made it possible to...

Owner and chef came out to serve us. He was friendly and mixed it up with the family in French, Spanish and English. 6 year old inhaled his pasta. 11 year old loved the escargot. Food was so well done. Vol au vent was well done with a flaky crust and creamy interior. Seafood A la Rochelle was flavored well.... More

We have lived in Costa Rica for 14 years. We have wanted to eat at Colbert's for at least 6 years. Finally we went with friends. The meal was very delicious. We had appetizers, main courses and deserts. The appetizers and main courses were fabulous. The deserts were just good. I do highly recommend this place. It is special.

An amazing restaurant with great wine list, gourmet French cuisine prepared by the owner himself, a wonderful French chef! Best duck breast with orange sauce ever! Prices were very, very moderate for quality of food and ambiance. Worth traveling miles off your path for this treasure!

Tipped off by our guidebook, we tried this place for a last proper lunch of our holiday and it was a great decision. The chef is a Frenchman who left his Charentais home more than 30 years ago and has been on the slopes of the volcano for the past 15. The food is unapologetically French and traditional and delicious.... More
