Restaurant and Lounge

Celajes Restaurant

Our lively Celajes Restaurant features splendid balconies overlooking the Pacific Ocean and offers world-class dishes, created by our head chef and served by our warm and friendly staff. We use only the best local ingredients, many of which are grown on the hotel property itself or on the Belmar family organic farm.comida The style of our culinary offerings ranges from interpretations of traditional Costa Rican dishes to original recipes reflecting the natural environment of the Monteverde area.

Open for breakfast from 6:30 am to 9 am, lunch from 12 pm to 3 pm, and dinner from 6 pm until 9 pm (8:30 pm in low season). Reservations are suggested for dinner.
Celajes also offers room service from 12 pm to 9 pm. You will find a menu in your room and can order by dialing 212 on your room phone.

Homemade Breakfasts


Hotel Belmar’s complimentary breakfasts have become one of the most beloved experiences for our guests. Please join us for a morning bird-watching session on the restaurant balcony while you delight in our homemade jams, granola, sweet and savory breads, yogurt, freshly squeezed orange juice, and local fruits. Also be sure to try our pancakes, our local meats or the typical Costa Rican gallo pinto, our free-range organic eggs, our queso fresco, and our omelets, made to order by our chef at our omelet station. This is truly the best way to start your day in the cloud forest.
