The Gecko Restaurant
We welcome you to the Gecko Restaurant at La Cusinga Lodge. Whether you are joining us for breakfast, lunch or dinner, you will be feasting on the finest ingredients our special part of Costa Rica has to offer. Our fruit comes from the trees on our property as well as from those of our neighbors and all of our produce is locally grown and sourced for organic and sustainable practices. The delicious fish you will eat here at The Gecko is locally caught and in most cases bought directly from the fisherman themselves.
Our mission is to offer our guests the same spiritual and physical sustenance in our food that they will receive from the natural beauty surrounding them at La Cusinga Lodge.
Just as La Cusinga represents a sustainable form of eco-tourism, at The Gecko we offer a cuisine that reflects that same sustainability. Our mission is to show not just our guests, but also the people of this community that it is possible to create delicious, serious, mostly organic food using entirely local ingredients.
Our satisfying and varied breakfast will provide you with all the strength and energy you’ll need to get through your day of hiking, touring or walking to the beach. If staying on the patio with a book in your lap is your idea of a fine way to spend a holiday, then join for us a lunch on our dining deck featuring more traditional cooking with fresh local ingredients. Relax and enjoy your lunch while seeing and hearing toucans, monkeys and maybe seeing a whale or two. The calm, the great food and the spectacular view out over the bright blue Pacific are a perfect way to ease through your day.
