Dining

Rich turmeric. Fiery cayenne. Bold cinnamon. Bright coriander. When you dine at Azulëo, we transport you to a world of flavor that blends the most exciting fragrances of the Old World with the fresh bounty of the New.

Azulëo offers travelers a taste of authentic Costa Rica, with plenty of ingredients sourced from our very own organic permaculture gardens, mixed with the vibrant flavors and communal shared-plate style of North African cuisine.

Our name was inspired by the Spanish word azulejo, which is a type of ceramic tile common in Costa Rica that has its origins in the Moroccan design aesthetic that inspired architectural masterpieces such as the Alhambra in Granada, Spain. The Moorish traditions of Spain made their way to Costa Rica with the arrival of the conquistadors, whose journeys were funded by wealth from the Arabian spice trade. The blending of this North African-influenced Spanish culture with the local traditions of Costa Rica’s indigenous inhabitants and the abundance of the fertile Costa Rican soil gave rise to the Tico cuisine.

FRESH, BOLD AND DELICIOUS

Morocco meets Tico…

Costa Rica’s tastiest dishes are often kept hidden in mountain villages and grandmother’s kitchens and rarely make their way into restaurants for visitors to try. With Azulëo, we dig up some of those hidden gems, transport them back in time and place through an infusion of Moroccan flavors, and present them in an entirely new and exciting way, ideally through shared plates at family-style tables. Feel free to eat with your hands, and don’t be afraid to dip your bread!
