A stylish tree house is what comes to mind when you catch a glimpse of this tapas bar on cantilevered metal stilts in Playa Hermosa on the Nicoya Peninsula. The wood-and-glass platform hovers about 20 feet off the ground, just high enough to catch the ocean breezes. The only wall is painted a vivid red, the same color as the wild ginger growing in the gardens below. Canadian-born chef Anne Hegney mixes and matches flavors on her extensive menu of small dishes, so you'll find unusual offerings such as chicken satay with a macadamia nut rub and seared ahi tuna served in a crispy taco. This place is a good dinner choice if you're staying in the nearby Playas del Coco, or a convenient stop if you're headed down the coast to Playa Tamarindo.—Updated by Christopher P. Baker

Open Tuesdays through Sundays 5 to 10 pm.
