Artisanal Produce Meets
Contemporary Cuisine

Dining at Senda Monteverde

At Senda, we believe honest, artisanal cuisine is the most flavorsome kind. That’s why, we source our ingredients responsibly, keep our food miles low and never compromise on freshness or quality.
Every bite is infused with Monteverde personality and a humble respect for our natural bounty. We are proud to bring you a sustainable and delicious taste of our national fare.

In-House Culinary Creations

Try our in-house specialties — like our own artisanal bread recipe. We also make all of our dressings, sauces, pickles and spiced fruit chutneys from scratch.

Taste our signature spin on international favorites.  Think lemon-zested fries, creamy Monteverde cheeses, and a fine selection of South American wines to enjoy by the fire.

Naturally Delicious

“There are so many restaurants in Monteverde but with a menu like Senda’s it’s pretty hard to venture out. Every dish is super fresh, super local, and downright tasty. Make sure to work up an appetite hiking in the cloud forest – you’ll want to try them all.”
