Gingerbread is a fine restaurant and boutique hotel perfectly situated along Lake Arenal in Costa Rica. Operated by a charismatic and talented culinary master, Chef Eyal absolutely works magic with food. Come and eat, drink then take a leisurely stroll back to your comfortable room to relax. We start every morning with a delicious hot breakfast and end every evening with an exceptional three-course meal created by the Chef.

Eyal is freaking amazing, he took care of seven people in my group, fed us with his humor/hospitality and mouthwatering food! If you stop by this location be sure to check out the gingerbread hotel. It’s not just an accommodation, it’s an ambiance you’ll never forget.
