A Feast for the Senses

Shade at La Fortuna is not just a feast for the palate but also a feast for the senses. The panoramic views of the ocean from this exquisite location are nothing short of amazing. During our visit, we were graced with the majestic sight of whales breaching the ocean’s surface, a spectacle that Shade at La Fortuna graciously enhances by offering binoculars to guests, allowing for a closer look at these magnificent creatures from a respectful distance.


Culinary Delights and Local Flavors

The food and drinks at Shade at La Fortuna are deliciously unmatched, with each dish showcasing the richness of local flavors. The restaurant prides itself on an array of dishes that are both innovative and comforting. The stone-fired pizzas and fresh catch tacos are testament to the restaurant’s commitment to authenticity and flavor.



Meeting the Minds Behind the Magic

Our experience was further enriched when we met one of the owners, Marcus, who shared his passion for creating a unique dining experience. The staff, including one of the best bartenders around, Bryan (IG: bryan_surfstyle ), made our visit unforgettable. Their expertise and hospitality perfectly complemented the atmospheric live band on a Sunday evening, which even played our request for the classic “Hotel California.”
