A great place for lunch or dinner (by reservation only and 4x4 absolutely required). Everything is prepared with organic ingredients and a true love for cooking and preparing flavorful meals. You could not ask for better hosts. The view and ocean breeze is to die for!

Our local professional women's group visited for a special event lunch yesterday and absolutely LOVED Rancho Cielo Alto! Jazmin, the owner, and her mom, Dona Aida, are professionals and they treat you to an amazing education of every single gorgeous food item they present on your plate.

We enjoyed a four course lunch, with beautifully prepared plates and every single item was amazing.

This view is the BEST in all of Costa Ballena as you are directly above the highway (but no noise!) and Hermosa Beach about 10 min from Uvita (North) and 10 min from Dominical (South).

Highly, highly, highly recommend.

This large restaurant, next to a large supermarket, and just off the main highway has a very large menu from which to choose breakfast , lunch, or dinner. The quality of food is good, with good portions. The service is good and efficient. It seems popular with tourists and locals alike, and has a bar at it;s centre.

On our way from Uvita to San Jose Airport, our drivers asked if we wanted local food or a ‘fancy’ restaurant. We all voiced loudly “LOCAL FOOD!” We pulled into Rancho Cielo Alto, jumped out of our van and started to dance to the lively music. The ambience was rustic, open-air, log and wood - felt like a tree house. Restrooms were also very clean. Our breakfasts were delicious with many options and combinations. There was also a small shop by the cashier with nice little souvenirs and local munchies and treats that we could buy for our flight. We spent almost two hours there because it was so much fun!

Yazmin and her family made appetizers of Picadilla (several types), homemade tortillas and specialty drinks that her mother made from Cinnamon and other spices/herbs grown at her home. You are really missing out of an authentic Costa Rican meal and experience if you do not visit. We have vacationed in Costa Rica for the past 6 years and Rancho Cielo Alto is one of the best places we have had the pleasure to visit .Please call to make reservations.
