This restaurant is located just 5 km from the town of La Fortuna on the road to Lake , across the road from the Volcano Lodge and Springs. It may seem like quite the trek to get there but a taxi can get you there in 5 minutes. This is one of the best, if not the best, upscale restaurants in the La Fortuna/Arenal area and totally worth the trip.
As you might guess from its name, Benedictus Steakhouse is known for its steaks but they also offer great lamb, chicken, pork, seafood and vegetarian dishes and best of all; most of the ingredients (including the beef, lamb, chicken and vegetables) are grown on the organic farm that surrounds the restaurant.
We recommend: Their homemade cheese and tortillas, steak, house red wine, and the gluten-free brownie with ice-cream.
