El Barco Restaurant

at Hotel Capitán Suizo



Our restaurant is directly located on the beach and offers a tranquil ambiance whilst being surrounded by nature. The ample breakfast buffet and our a la carte lunch and dinner with a mixed cuisine of international dishes and classic Costa Rican cuisine can be enjoyed daily. We furthermore provide candle light dinners for those who want to spend a romantic evening under the moonlight and with a view over the endless horizon of the Pacific Ocean. Every Monday and Wednesday the dinner is accompanied by live Marimba music.

During the dry season, we offer a sunset special during which you can enjoy two for one on a selection of drinks, between 4pm and 5:30pm.


Our Executive Chef, Jujo Molina, has extensive experience in international cuisine, especially Mediterranean and Spanish thanks to his Asturian origin. In the search of more culinary experience he travelled to London and later in Europe (Italy, France, Portugal) until he made the jump over the Atlantic to countries like Argentina, Chile, the United States and now Costa Rica. After various years of experience in restaurants and hotels, he decided to display his knowledge as a private chef when he took the decision to join the team of the Capitán Suizo in 2016. 

With all his culinary experience, Jujo Molina came to the Capitán Suizo to renovate and reinvent the menu of our restaurant. The hotel’s philosophy of using fresh and organic ingredients whenever possible, complement perfectly with the concept of Chef Jujo who works with authentic and natural products to create healthy and light dishes.

Chef Jujo is well known for his creativity; he gives them an exquisite and unique touch through the fusion of seasonal, natural ingredients and handpicked condiments.
