Located next to the hotel's hot mineral pool and outdoor Jacuzzi, the 86 seat Los Tucanes restaurant is Tabacon's option for fine dining in the rainforest. Our open-air facilities are surrounded by manicured gardens and primary forest, and offer a vantage point for volcano viewing. The restaurant offers a wide selection of international wines and liqueurs. The setting is not formal, but guests tend to dress up for dinner, typically sporting a business-casual look. Nights, particularly between November and March can be in the cool side, so a light sweater or long sleeves are recommended.
Buffet or A-la-Carte Breakfast: guests choosing to include our breakfast option with the room reservation or vacation package at Tabacon can enjoy the daily breakfast buffet at Restaurant Los Tucanes, surrounded by lush rainforest.
